Sand Art Booth at Medford Fireworks - July 19th

Thomas Beitel is planning a Sand Art booth for the Medford Fireworks to finish his requirements for National Youth Leadership Training.

We know this is directly before Yawgoog, but is a very fun and easy way to get service. Hopefully, some scouts will be able to help if they are going to the fireworks (or if they are not going to Yawgoog).
We would like to have at least four scouts and two adults present at the stand for each shift to oversee the kids who participate as well as help the younger children.

There will be four shifts: 3pm-5pm (set up), 5pm-7pm, 7pm-9pm, and 9pm-finished (clean up)


Service Projects

The Troop is helping out with "Movies in the Park" on Tuesday evenings at Freedom Park for the remainder of the summer. This is a great opportunity for Scouts to earn Service Hours. Please let Ellen Sterbenz know if your Scout would like to help.

 

Court of Honor - Sunday, September 21st
