We Still Need Volunteers for the Cub Adventure Trail Event!

Posted on Jul 22 2021 - 8:33pm

The District Program Committee is still looking for a few adults and older scouts to help out with our inaugural Cub Adventure Trail event. We expect the event to take place on Saturday morning, August 14th, at Green Meadow Preserve in Marietta (3780 Dallas Hwy, Marietta, GA 30064) but we have arranged a rain date of August 21st with the park. We still need adults to man a few activity stations, and older scouts to act as trail guides to shepherd small groups of Cubs and their parents along the Cub Adventure Trail. Scout volunteers will earn service hours! We are also in need of a few pop-up canopies to provide shelter to our station volunteers, and portable tables for the stations. If your unit or scouts are interested in helping in any way, please contact our Program Chair, Sharla Stewart, at progchair@silvercometdistrictbsa.org. Thanks in advance for helping to make this a fun event for our Cub Scout families!
