Scouts - blast cars, manure sale and more

Post date: Feb 28, 2014 9:53:30 PM

Hello Scout families.

Thanks very much to the families that participated and helped with the Feb 16 church service and the Feb 17 banquet. Both events had the best attendance we’d seen in a few years! Thanks again to Wendy Chee for her great organizing and those that helped out in the kitchen!

Feb 24 – finish blast cars. If you took a kit home to work on your design, you must bring it to this meeting. If you have an electric sander or manual sanding supplies please bring on this date. We will be painting the cars. I suggest scouts wear their grubby clothes so there is no risk of getting paint on your favourite shirt!

Feb 28 & Mar 1 - Manure Sale. Flyer deliveries or phoning should be completed NOW. It is very important that you return the phone lists to me on Monday evening so they can be entered in our database.

Every scout and 1 parent is expected to put in at least 4 hours on the Friday eve or Saturday. Work shifts are Friday, Feb 28 from 6 pm to 9 pm and Saturday, March 1, 8am to 4pm. All scouts plus one parent are asked to volunteer at least four hours for this short and successful fundraiser. Please bring a shovel. We will be working at St Helens Anglican church at 4405 West 8th Avenue (Trimble & 8th). Friday night will be primarily shovelling and starting to make deliveries. We will finish deliveries on Saturday and clean up that afternoon. There will be lots of refreshments and good company to keep you energized.

Please contact James Fraser and advise what day and time you are able to participate. We do not wear our uniforms for this activity. I suggest boots and work clothes!
