September 30: Cub Day of Service at Spruce Run Recreation Area

Posted on Sep 18 2017 - 4:10pm

Cub Scouts are invited to "Do a Good Turn" during the Cub Day of Service on Saturday, September 30 from 1 PM to 4 PM at Spruce Run Recreation Area

Scouts should wear their Pack 1980 t-shirt and their rank cap.  Please layer underneath for warmth and to protect as you go into the brush to retrieve trash and recycling.

Scouts should bring gloves and wear close-toed shoes.  Garbage bags will be supplied.

This event is rain or shine.  If there are thunderstorms, then we’ll find a new date.  Your Scout does not have to be present for the entire time.  However, it will be easier to find the group and obtain the trash bags if you do arrive at the starting time. 

There are service requirements for some Cub levels and for Scouts as well.  This is a good way to get those requirements completed while giving back to the community.  Spruce Run has been a great location for our District’s Yukon Trail for the past four years and it is great to have scouts help to keep it clean.

Please register your intention to participate on the Cub Day of Service webpage.
