Troop 766 Cedar Rapids Optimist Flags 2022

About this event

We have an excellent opportunity for 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. Troop 766 is given 4 routes in Cedar Rapids to distribute/collect the flags. Each holiday takes 1-1.5 hours in the morning after sunrise and 1-1.5 hours at night before sunset. Yes, we are still putting flags out since this is a small group of 3 in a car.

  • Each vehicle has 1 adult driver and 2 Scouts. We need 4 vehicles per holiday.
  • Drivers will earn $10 per holiday for their time, vehicle use, and gas. This extra money would go directly into their son/daughter's Scout Account.
  • Each car will earn ~$100 per holiday. 1 Scout will earn $45.00 and the other will earn $55.00 (Scout + driver) per holiday. Amounts may change depending on the number of flags.
  • 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 minivan) and 2 Scouts per route, for a total of 4 adult drivers and 8 Scouts to sign-up.
