It's time for Troop 1001's first Flag Program Fundraiser of 2018!!!
Volunteers will gather at the Flag Storage Trailer located at 909 N. Bowser in Richardson on Friday, May 25th at 5:30 pm to get organized, receive route assignments, and pick up the flags.  Bottled water will be provided to help keep you hydrated during the event. The flag installation is usually completed within 2 1/2 to 3 hours and we will meet to wrap up the event with ice cream.
The individual 2017-2018 patrols are responsible for filling the assigned volunteer spots and patrol leaders are asked to make sure their patrol's slots are filled.  Scouts sign up under their patrol leader. 

Adults can sign up to drive for their scout's patrol or under the Freebird (adult) patrol.  Parents, the flag poles are long but if you have a pick-up truck, a van or a mid-size or larger hatchback/SUV, please volunteer to drive if you can.  Thanks!

Dear Troop 1001 scouts and families,
It was a pleasure to work with you all at the Spring 2018 Cottonwood Art Festival fundraiser. The City of Richardson, visiting artists, and police and security personnel were extremely appreciative and complimentary of our service. It makes us very proud to see the young men of our troop establish their place in the fabric of our community through opportunities such as the Cottonwood fundraiser.
We logged 468.4 volunteer hours by boys, and 621.6 hours by adults. Wow!!! Water sales and tips generated through load-in/load-out activities were strong.. The record of service hours and hours for advancement has been forwarded to Jim Philips.  Please contact us if you find any discrepancy and we can re-check the logs, as needed.
Mark your calendars now for next Cottonwood event, October 6 & 7 2018, with set-up beginning on the 4th. Hopefully, we'll experience another gorgeous and profitable weekend at that time.
We appreciate the dedication and the positive spirit of service you bring to the troop in this huge fundraising effort. See you again in the fall.
