Scout-O-Rama Sign Ups

Posted on May 1 2016 - 2:17pm

Scouts and Parents,

Scout-O-Rama 2016 is happening on Saturday May 7. This event will be from 9:00 in the morning until 3:00, and will need volunteers to do one-hour shifts throughout the day.
 
 
Our troop will be making Doughnuts! That means that we will need at least one older scout per rotation to cook them, and any other scouts that can roll the dough, sprinkle sugar on them, or tell visitors about our troop.
 
Parents: We will need a volunteer to get all the supplies needed (Ingredients) sometime before that Saturday, and there will be a upcoming email on that.
 
If you would like to know what Scout-O-Rama is, please visit http://www.ocbsa.org/scout-o-rama/. If you have any other questions, please contact me.
 
-Thanks
Zach Still
SPL Troop 918

Depart and Return

  • Meet at church 7:30am Saturday morning with a full stomach.
  • We'll be back mid-afternoon Sunday, likley in the 3-4 pm range, but tha'ts just a guideline.  We'll text when on the way with a good idea.
