The Light up the Corners Glow Run is three weeks away. Originally we had spots to help with Event Set-up and Cone Set-up. But their greatest need is volunteers to man water stops along the route, so the service project has changed accordingly.

Saturday, August 20th - 7:45-10 PM Water Stop 3 (Wentworth Subdivision Entrance): Set up water stop and pass out water to runners/walkers. Clean up cups and trash after runners pass. We need 5 scouts and 1 leader. Attire: Class B

Scouts and Troop 525 Families:
Fall and the start of the new school year is a GREAT time to invite your friends and neighbors to join Troop 525.  The troop and the BSA is great fun, has much to offer, and there are many outdoor adventures.  You can have them come to a regular Monday meeting or join us on a campout.  If they want to come to an outing, please check with an adult leader on what forms are needed.
