Outdoor Committee Support needed

Posted by pfarley on Sep 11 2022 - 12:02pm

Troop, it takes quite a few volunteers to run the troop and as Scouts and parents age out, we need to find new volunteers.  On the Outdoor committee, we have an immediate need for someone to coordinate Transportation for outings.  This involves ensuring we have enough seats going out and back to accommodate everyone.  It does NOT need to be someone camping with us.  If this is something you might be open to, please contact Paul Farley for more details.
