Looking for an Eagle Project?

The Guadalupe River Park and Gardens is looking for someone to manage construction of a boardwalk path.  The challenge is that this project is in San Jose, not so close in terms of lining up workers.  But the good news is that they have funding for all of the materials.  

If interested, contact Mr. Bernstein  apb@hopkinscarley.com


New Scout Registration OPEN 10/21!

If you know someone who is interested in joining Troop 33 please let them know that registration for our 2013-14 first year program officially opens Monday 10/21.  We only have 24 slots and have traditionally filled up quickly, click here for info:
