Scouting for Food - Pickup

posted Nov 5, 2019, 8:07 AM by Dan Walton

Saturday, November 9th, 2019 - 9am at McGrath Field

Each year, Scouts all across America have what is the worlds largest single-day food drive called "Scouting for Food"!  The food collected on this drive will provide food for the needy in our community throughout the year through the Second Harvest Food Bank.  This is your chance to be part of something REALLY BIG that is "HELPING OTHER PEOPLE" as we pledge in our Scout Oath.

There are two parts of the food drive:  

1. Door Hanger Drop-off - We Already Did This!

2. Food Pickup (this Saturday) - Troop & Pack families drive around, looking for bags, picking them up. We put them all in the flat-bed trailer.  Then, those who want can go to the distribution site to deliver the goods!

EVENT DETAILS for Food Drive PICK-UP
Who:          Boy Scout Families
Date & Time:  Saturday, November 9th, at 9am Sharp for group meeting
Location:     McGrath Field (info) - 1975 Stewart Road(map)- DO NOT MEET AT SCOUTPOST!
Attire:       Scouts wear Class-A Uniforms 
              Wear walking shoes.
Notes:        We'll meet at McGrath, assign areas, 
              and send families out with maps & water bottles.
              At the end, if desired, go to the drop-off station 
              nearby to help unload and see!!!


If we have enough help, we can do it in about 1 1/2 hours!

Saturday, April 27th, 2019

ALL HANDS ON DECK!


Scouts & Parents, please come and help our generous donors Bruce & Kim Gust do a Community Service Project for their Condo Community.

They have purchased two dump-trucks full of mulch, and need our help to lay it down!

This a way we can express our gratitude for their extreme and continued generosity to the Troop.


WHO CAN HELP?   We're asking any/all Scouts/Family/Friends that would like to come out and help.  With many hands, it will go quickly!

WHEN IS IT?  This will be Saturday, April 27th from 1:00-5:00pm.  If you can make it the whole time, great, but if not, please do what you can! 

WHERE IS IT?  At the Oceana Oceanfront Condominiums in Satellite Beach. - Driving Map

NEEDING A RIDE?  The plan is for scouts and their families to drive themselves and work.  However, for scouts that need to go alone, we have space in the van for 11 people who may need a ride.  If you need a ride, please email or text Mr. Walton.

WHAT TO WE BRING? - Shovels, leaf rakes, gloves (if desired), and sun protection.  We'll supply water & Gatorade. 

WE NEED WHEEL BARROWS TOO! - If you have a wheel barrow, and can bring it, please do.  If you have one, but it's too hard to take there on Saturday, can you drop it off on Friday at the Scoutpost? If so, please contact Dan Walton to arrange.

WHAT TO WEAR? Scouts please wear a proper Class-B uniform

Lightfest 2018

posted Nov 19, 2018, 7:39 AM by Dan Walton   [ updated Nov 23, 2018, 5:28 AM ]

November 24th & December 2nd - 

We have two Space Coast Lightfest Work Nights coming up and we need ALL families to help out.  Here are the details:


Why Is This Important? Not only is this community service, but it is a VERY good fundraiser for our Troop and Pack. The money we raise goes right back to keeping camping and activity costs down, as well as supports our facility costs for being in the Scoutpost.


What do you Do? Direct cars, take tickets, sell concession, and help santa.


Who Can Help? We can use help from scouts, parents, and siblings who are scout aged and up. We can even have help from extended family and friends. We have about 26 slots to fill, so it's ALL HANDS ON DECK!


When Is This? We have TWO work nights, they are:

  • Saturday, November 28th- We are in charge of ticketing, hayrides, concession, and santa support.

  • Sunday, December 2nd - We are in charge of Parking, so this is older boys and older siblings/adults only.


What are the Shift Times? We want people to work BOTH shifts on a night if at all possible.  It is very difficult to change shifts.

  • First Shift - Starts at 5:15 and ends at 8:30.

  • Second Shift - Starts at 8:00 and ends at 10:30pm. However, typically we break up around 9:30 or 10pm, depending on traffic, they close early.


Signup - Please use this SIGNUP FORM or look below below to sign up EACH PERSON individually.  Indicate ALL possible nights you can work please. If we end up getting enough people, we will start dropping shifts when people signed up for multiple. WORK BOTH SHIFTS in a night if possible, it is hard to change shifts.  


SCOUTS! - If you or your families cannot attend, please email Mr. Walton and let him know that fact, and the reason. We are expecting every family to get as engaged as possible.


DONATE BAKED GOODS
A good part of the fundraising aspect of the event is our Homemade and Quality Baked Goods sale (and hot chocolate).  We ask that all Pack families donate at least one home made or quality purchased baked goods.   Please CLICK HERE to indicate what you will bring and how you will deliver it.  Look at the email from Marie Higbie for Details.
