Boy Scout Troop 34 has been busy this week. They work on a lot of projects on the Old Mission Peninsula, including at our parks and Lighthouse.

They also partner with the Memorial Tree Committee of the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society. This week found them planting a line of trees along Center Road at Tim Carroll’s historic home.

Below are a few photos of the event. Of course, Tim being Tim, there was a story or two about his childhood growing up on the OMP. We always love Tim’s stories!

Also, today the Troop was at First Congregational Church selling mulch by the bag or in bulk. I brought home six bags, and at $3.50/bag (large garbage bags), that’s a bargain.

Maybe the weather will warm up some day and I’ll actually be able to plant some things. (It got up to 68 degrees today, so there’s that.)

Don’t worry – if you missed it, the Troop will be selling mulch at the church again next Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to noon, 6105 Center Road.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
