Pack Meeting: Tuesday, 9/13 at 7PM
We hope everyone is off to a great start to the school year. This is a friendly reminder that our first Pack Meeting of the school year is tonight at 7PM at the Riverside Presbyterian Church. We will be reviewing the exciting activities we have planned for the year and getting the kids started on selling Popcorn. We will also have some fun Star Wars themed activities for the Scouts to get in the Spirit of our 2016 Popcorn campaign.
Squash Harvest to Benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository
The Greater Chicago Food Depository has partnered with a farmer in Marengo, Illinois that allows squash to be harvested …all of which goes to the food depository. Volunteers (aged 8 and up) are needed to harvest the squash. This would make great event to teach our scouts about volunteerism and contributing to help feed the hungry. In the last few years, volunteers have harvested hundreds of thousands of pound of fresh corn and squash.
Date: Saturday October 8th
Time: 7:30 AM
Location: 10409 Carls Rd, Marengo IL 60152
(Appx 60 miles from Riverside)
Volunteers: Must be age 8 or over. Adult chaperones will need to register through the Greater Chicago Food Depository website (www.chicagosfoodbank.org) online volunteer system. For the youth volunteers, we will only need to provide a list with names and dates of birth. Please go to the signup genius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040e4cadaa2da20-food
Deadline: Please sign up by 9/20.
