Phone Books Round 2 (The Final One for 2016)

Good Evening,

The books will be delivered to the Ellington warehouse this Friday.  We are hoping Scouts, Friends and Family members not camping can help with some bagging Friday night.

We are planning for a bagging night on Tuesday December 6th and if necessary Thursday December 8th.  This week’s meeting is at the Elks and we will discuss further.

Additional notes:

  • If we have the same turnout and execution we did last time, we can get it done on Tuesday.
  • The routes are Vernon / Rockville and Ellington only (limited Ellington Routes).
  • Possible Troop delivery day on Saturday the 10th.  It may be possible to get everything delivered in one day.

Thank you,

Jason

Phone Book Update

Good Evening Scout Families,

A great night of bagging helped to set the stage for what is shaping up to be a successful first round of deliveries.  We are expecting news on the second round of routes and books (Ellington and Vernon) early next week.

With an estimated cost to the Troop of approximately $350 per scout, phone books are critical fundraiser and we look forward to great participation with the second round wrapping up Phone Book delivery 2016.

Stay tuned for more information.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Jason

All of the books are back in the warehouse.

Due to the pending weather I have put all of the phone books in the warehouse.  I will put some back outside before the leaf raking.
