Scouts and Adults Sign Up for Flags for Independence Day

Posted on Jun 26 2015 - 9:00am

Please sign up here to help place up flags FRIDAY July 3rd or pick up flags SATURDAY July 11th.   


Flags Out July 3rd             http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054baaae2aa20-independence2


Flags In July 11th               http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054baaae2aa20-independence


The flag program is a major fund raiser for Troop 1001.  The Canyon Creek Home Owners Association Flag Program grew to 470 flags last year and it is still growing.  The troop places flags in the neighborhood north of the church for four patriotic holidays.   The Troop is paid $1 for each flag placed the Saturday before a holiday and another $1 for each flag picked up the following Saturday.  Eight Saturdays a year we need at least 8 drivers and 16 scouts from 8AM to noon.  Typically we are done and eating our scoop of ice cream at 11AM.


The signup may be different than you recall.  The 2014-2015 Patrols are responsible for filling the assigned volunteer spots.  When you sign up, look for your patrol leader or your son’s patrol from last year  Adults can also sign up at the bottom for the Freebird (adult) patrol.  


If you can't sign-up online, please contact Paul Young 972-207-3083.  Scouts cannot use the time for BSA-required volunteer hours, but they do count toward school or community volunteer hours.
