Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Posted on Apr 26 2016 - 5:19pm

***Parent Volunteer Policy***

We can not accomplish as much or attend as many outings without parent volunteers.  For this reason, we need ALL parents to take on a responsibility.  For any family that does not take on a responsibility there will be a non-volunteer fee of $150. As the scout year is coming to a close, the committee will be evaluating current volunteer contributions. Please contact Renee Brooks if you are interested in volunteering.
