I apologize for the mass email but this the quickest way I can use to get this message out. I am asking you for help with a project that is near & dear to my heart. A little over a year ago my assistant here at Boulder Creek passed away suddenly. Bob loved Boulder Creek Scout Reservation and kept the camp running in my absence. He was wonderful in meeting the needs of our campers but was probably best known for the wonderful campfires that he led. Bob wrote and played many songs on his guitar. To remember Bob’s commitment to BCSR many of our volunteers have develop a plan to rebuild our campfire amphitheater and name it after Bob.
A local men’s group who have performed service in the camp in the past are leading the project. A plan has been developed to replace all the seating in sections and add handicap seating. Improve the drainage and replace the stage decking. We also plan to improve the lighting and audio/visual equipment. Many of the details on the project can be seen @ bobkellermemorial.com.
Some local companies have donated some materials for the project but much more is needed. We need more Allan block, gravel, sand, drainage pipe, Redwood lumber, hardware, electrical conduit, wire and fixtures. If you know of any companies that might be willing to donate any of these type materials, please send me the contact information.
We can also use monetary contributions. The approx. costs are about $750.00 for a small bench, a medium bench is $1250. and a large bench is $2000. Buy a bench or contribute any amount to help with the costs of construction. When we acquire enough materials we will begin removing the old benches one section at a time. We will be publishing opportunities for volunteers to help with construction as another way to contribute to the project. We have raised almost $10,000. in contributions and materials toward approx. $100k necessary needed to complete construction.
On Tuesday Dec. 2, 2014 we will be holding a fundraising opportunity at BJ Restaurant in Foster City. If you can attend please print the attach flyer and join us for lunch or dinner. Contact me if you would be willing to host a fundraising event at other restaurants or other venues.
As we enter the holiday season I want thank-you for your dedication to Scouting and ask you to give above and beyond your normal contribution to help us remember Bob by supporting the Bob Keller Memorial Campfire Amphitheater.
Please forward this information on to your Troop and friends and I will see you at BJ’s on Tuesday.
Yours in Scouting
