Veterans Stand Down Food Drive Nov 3

The Troop will be collecting food and personal effects for the Veterans Stand Down at King Kullen next Saturday, Nov. 3rd.  We hope to have 1 to 2 adults and 2 to 4 Scouts at each 2-hour interval from 10 am until 6 pm.  This requires a good turnout of volunteers offering only 2 hours of their day.    

At our meeting tomorrow, 10/25, parents are asked to see Mrs. Schwartz to sign up for a time slot that is best for you.  Items collected by the Troop will be delivered to our Legion Post for distribution at the stand down.  Permission slips are attached and are due Nov. 1st.
