Come Join Cub Scouts – Come Have FUN!
The scouts and leaders of Troop 108 will be assisting our “little brothers”, Pack 108, with their School Night For Scouting efforts at Fort Mill Elementary School (192 Springfield Parkway, Fort Mill, SC) AND Doby Bridge Elementary School (4137 Dobys Bridge Rd, Fort Mill, SC) on Thursday, September 4th, 2014. Our leaders will be helping to inform the new Cub Scout parents about the program and make sure that all new scout’s paperwork is filled out correctly.
We need some of our scouts to show up at each of the two schools about 6:30pm to work together to lead boys interested in joining Cub Scouts through some songs, skits and cheers. Essentially we want you to help them see just how much fun scouting can be! You should be finished up by 8pm.
This will be a great opportunity to help scouting in our community, have fun and earn a little service hour time as well. If you have any questions, please contact Ben Ludolph or use the CONTACT US form on this site to send an email to the Scoutmaster.
