Troop 766 and Crew 2000 Scouts Only
Veteran's Day, November 11th put up flags at 6:30am, take down flags at 4:00pm. Meet at the American Legion Post 735 (207 Robins Road in Hiawatha) in the morning and night.
We have an excellent opportunity for the Scouts to earn some extra cash and service hours through the Hiawatha American Legion Post 735. It involves putting up flags in the morning and retrieving them at night. There are 5 different holidays that the flags are displayed in Hiawatha for The Avenue of Flags. Troop 766 is given 4 routes in Hiawatha to distribute/collect the flags. Each holiday takes 1 hour in the morning after sunrise and 1 hour at night before sunset.
- Scouts would earn $17.50 per holiday. This is equivalent to $8.75/hour.
- Drivers will earn $10 per holiday for their time, vehicle use and gas. This extra money would go directly into their son's Scout Account.
- Each vehicle has 1 adult driver and 2 Scouts. 1 Scout will earn $17.50 and the other will earn $27.50 (Scout + driver money) per holiday.
All money earned would go directly into their Scout Account. You can sign-up for 1 holiday or all 5 (it's up to you).
We need 1 adult driver (with a truck, SUV or mini-van) and 2 Scouts per route, for a total of 4 adult drivers and 8 Scouts to sign-up.
