Volunteer Opportunities

Posted by ksullivan on Aug 2 2015 - 4:34pm

The Castle Rock Downtown Alliance has asked for our help running, mainly set-up and clean up.  They have offered to make a donation to our troop for every event worked.  That money will go to your scout accounts, unless you want community service hours.  Below are the dates and events.  Most of these events take place at Festival Park.  Please let me know if you are able to help.  As always we ask the adults to help out and support our troop.
