Andre Brugo is doing his Eagle Scout Service Project

When This Saturday (9/26/15). From 8:00am to 4pm, come as long as you like.

Where: The Brookwood Community is located at 1752 Farm to Market 1489 Brookshire, Texas 77423 (about 1,000 feet South of The Café at Brookwood). If you need a ride there, show up at the scout hut by 8:00 for driver assignments, and we will be leaving the hut by 8:15.

What: The plan is to go out to The Brookwood Community and restore around 80+ bicycles. The bikes must be cleaned, tires need to be replaced, inner tubes patched or replaced, brake lines fixed, chains cleaned then lubricated.

Who: This is for the Brookwood Community which is a community built for adults with mental and/or physical disabilities.

Why:You can get up to 8 service hours, breakfast and lunch will be provided, lots of help is needed, also it's a great cause, because riding bikes is most of the physical activity these people get and need.
