An afternoon of fun for a purpose! A Soap Box Derby and Service Project Spectacular!
Please come November 16 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm on Holmes Street in Marion for an afternoon of philanthropy and fun with the boys from Marion Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop #32. The Pack will be racing Soap Box Derby Cars down Holmes Street while they help run three service projects.
In one area, the boys are running a bake sale to show their support for one of our Cub Scout families, whose mother is battling breast cancer.
In addition, the Scouts, in conjunction with Marion Police Brotherhood, are collecting donations for the Grace Episcopal Food Pantry in New Bedford. (Pantry donations can also be dropped off at the Marion Police Station, until November 16.)
Our third project is for Gifts to Give. Any new or gently used toy or clothes may be donated. Gifts to Give helps local children in need. The Cub Scouts will be wrapping gently used or new toys and clothing for kids for the upcoming holiday season. A full list of items being collected can be found on our website: http://scoutlander.com/publicsite/unithome.aspx?UID=25641.
This is a great opportunity to come see what scouting is really all about. Fun with a purpose! If your son is interested in joining scouting, bring him out to meet the Scouts and be part of something special. If you have items to donate, an appetite for some special baked treat or you just want to see the race, please come see us on Holmes Street, November 16! Rain date is November 17. Feel free to contact Kristen Saint Don-Campbell with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (508) 748-3129.
