Looking for Volunteers July 4th

Troop 26 will be setting up and removing chairs and  tables for the 4th of July parade this Wednesday.

Set up will begin at 9:00 AM  Meet in front of the Veterans Hall located at 112 W. Cabrillo Blvd.  The set up  should take about 1 1/2 hours.

Breakdown will be directly  following the the parade  at approximately 1:30 PM. Meet at State St. and Arrellaga  St.

Break down will also take about 1 1/2 hours. We will follow the end of  the parade removing chairs, tables, and recycling containers.

I need two teams of scouts (4 to 6 scouts for each shift and one parent), a morning and an afternoon shift.

Community service hours are available for this project.

Troop participation credit for 1 day if you work both shifts.

Please wear your uniform. 

A generous donation of $250 has been  made to our troop for this project in the past.

If you need additional Troop 26 participation, please contact Mr. Pinner.  He is doing a BSA South Coast District event during the parade and you can participate in both events and earn additional participation.  He can be reached a or 448-8760

ImagePlease help Kevin S. raise money for his Eagle Project this Saturday. He is holding a car wash from 9:30 to 2:30 at Grace Lutheran Church 3869 State Street (right next to the north entrance to the La Cumbre mall).

He needs both washers (scouts who volunteer will receive community service hours for their time) and something to wash, so bring your car, truck, or van by, it probably needs a wash!

Any donations or help will be greatly appreciated!
