Hi Scouts and Scout Families,
The time has come to sign up for our Flag Program. This program is how our troop earns money to support our award purchases and help pay for many of our adventures. It's also a great way for the scouts to earn money to pay for scout activities or equipment. Each scout who particpates in the flag program earns $2.50 for each flag posted and picked up which averages to about $60. When you sign up please know you must be available for posting and pickup. Below are the following dates that we put the flags out:
Memorial Day - Monday, May 25, 2020
Flag Day - Sunday, June 14, 2020
4th of July - Saturday, July 4, 2020
Labor Day - Monday, September 7, 2020
Veteran’s Day - Sunday, November 8, 2020
We feel like we have come up with a safe plan to post flags while keeping a safe distance from each other. We have around 193 flags to post for the Memorial Day holiday and the following signup is for this holiday only. We will divide the flags into 4 routes. Each route will need a driver, navigator and a scout who can carry about 60 flags in their car. (There is a troop trailer which someone can reserve) Then, we will need another driver and a scout to follow. So please sign up for the listed positions. We need 8 drivers, 4 navigators, and 8 scouts for each holiday. Each car should be with their own family, so husbands and wives need to be a team as the driver and navigator (siblings can help too).
We usually all meet at the Scout barn at 6 am to load up the flags and distribute routes, but this time we will stagger the times for loading flags. (5:45am/6:00am/6:15am/6:30am) Then we will reconvene again at 6 pm to head out and pickup flags. I know we have many new scout families, so we are planning a flag briefing at the next meeting.
