Boy Scouts resurrect Memphis City Beautiful patch | Community Spirit
In honor of its 80th year, the Memphis City Beautiful Commission is teaming with the Chickasaw Council to re-introduce the Memphis City Beautiful Boy Scout Patch.
Mayor A C Wharton, Jr. will welcome over 100 Boy Scouts Saturday, Oct. 16 as they join volunteers from LeMoyne-Owen Community Development Corp. and Bridge Builders to conduct the "We are Soul Community Cleanup" as the first project towards earning a new patch.
The purpose of the program is to encourage an awareness and an involvement in community cleanliness, beautification, and to instill a sense of pride and responsibility toward the environment.
This program not only involves projects for Memphis City Beautiful, in addition, the Scout is required to select three activities from our environmental partners to receive a badge.
Environmental and Community partners include:
- Lichterman Nature Center
- Wolf River Conservancy
- Greater Memphis Greenline
- Clean Memphis
- Shelby Farms
- Midtown North Community Garden
- Memphis Botanic Garden
- Sierra Club
