2016 Major Events and Camping Calendar

Ready for a fully equipped year of fun and excitement? The troop has planned and put together a full list of upcoming adventures and outings you may be interested in. The dates for these events and camp outs can be found on the 2016 updated calendar.

Madera Elementary Harvest Festival

On October 23rd, Madera Elementary School will be holding a fundraiser, a Harvest Festival and Silent Auction. The PTA has been doing this event for several years, and work very hard to raise money for the school. A big challenge is getting enough volunteers, and staff members. The PTA was hoping some of the scouts could help out at the event, running a variety of game booths. The event runs from 4:30 to 8:30, and scouts will not have to work the entire time. If you are interested and would like to pick a time, or set your hours for working visit this webpage for scheduling and shifts. If you have any further questions you may contact Cassie Godwin and Tacy Torres via email. Hope some scouts can help out!

Looking For Volunteers – Service Hours

Looking for service hours? This Saturday, the 12th, Summerfest will be occurring. Summerfest is a non-profit and donates proceeds back to the 3 high schools in Simi Valley. They are requesting helped from us for parking assistants, trash, and tear down. To sign up, use SignUp Genius, which can be found here. The times are listed on the Sign Up Genius link, which you can choose the desired time you want.

Hope some scouts are able to help out!
