Pancakes - Have you Signed Up and Sold Tickets?

Posted on May 1 2013 - 4:20pm

The annual Pancake Breakfast will be held on Sunday, May 5, serving food from 8:00-12:00. Uniform is the Class B (red) Shirt and Scout Pants.

Sign-up is now open. All scouts are expected to sign up for a shift to help with this fundraiser. Each scout is also expected to sell at least six tickets - which you should have received in the mail two weeks ago.

Parents are also needed to help prepare food.

The money earned at this fundraiser is used to pay for awards, camp permits, equipment, administrative expenses, and other expenses. The fundraiser reduces costs that would otherwise be passed on to the scouts. Successful fundraisers require the continued efforts of all scouts and their parents in the troop. For parents who don’t like to camp, this fundraiser provides an excellent opportunity to participate in a scouting event and help the troop.
