Event description

Description

Troop 766 and Venture Crew 2000 Scouts Only

Veteran's Day, November 11th, put up flags at 6:00am, take down flags at 7:00pm. Meet at Southgate Storage (3350 Southgate Ct. SW) in the morning and night.

We have an excellent opportunity for the Scouts to earn some extra cash and service hours through the Optimist Club of Cedar Rapids. It involves putting up flags in the morning and retrieving them at night. There are 5 different holidays that the flags are displayed in Cedar Rapids for The Avenue of the Flags. Troop 766 is given 4 neighborhoods to distribute/collect the flags. Each holiday takes about 1 hour in the morning after sunrise and about 1 hour at night before sunset. We will split this up in 3 different routes.

  • Scouts would earn $3.00 a flag per holiday, sign up for 1 or all 5 Holidays.
  • Each vehicle has 1 adult driver and 2 Scouts.
  • Scouts should wear their Class A (no neckerchief or sash needed)
  • GPS or Cedar Rapids City Map a good idea to have

All money earned would go directly into their Scout Account.

We need 1 adult driver (with a truck, SUV or mini-van that can carry 10 foot flag poles) and 2 Scouts per route, for a total of 4 adult drivers and 8 Scouts to sign-up.
