Submitted by Boy Scout Troop 597:
Edmonson County Boy Scout Troop 597 has been planning a trip to Ely, Minnesota for a Northern Tier High Adventure canoeing trip for July 2020. Since May of 2019, our troop has been working to earn money to help offset the cost of the trip. The scouts have been participating in bake sales, yard sales, parking cars, spirit nights, selling meat sticks, as well as working on their own to help pay for their portion of the trip. As a troop, we had some fundraising activities that did not work out and that has hurt our efforts.
Now we are turning to the community for help! We have two spirit nights scheduled for this week.
Wednesday, March 11, Blaze pizza in Bowling Green is hosting a night for our troop from 5:00-8:00. All you have to do is bring in a copy of the flyer or show them the flyer on your phone before paying and 20% of the proceeds goes to the troop. For us to get the proceeds, you MUST show the flyer!
Thursday, March 12, Bee Spring Restaurant will be hosting a spirit night for our troop. Please come out and support our scouts!
Our scouts and leaders have worked hard to help earn the funds for this trip. If anyone would like to make a donation to help fund our trip, please contact Scoutmaster Derek Curtis at 270-996-8809.
A Scout is thrifty! From the Scout Handbook - "A Scout is thrifty. A Scout works to pay his way and to help others. He saves for the future. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property."
