Ladies and Gentlemen:
Attached is the general flyer for this years Scouts In Parks Day event to be held on April 27th. Please distribute this throughout your districts as we work this year to help clean-up and rebuild areas hard hit by Sandy. Yes that means most of the work will be in Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn so I hope to see many of those units signed up to help out. I also want to see our units from Manhattan either in Brooklyn or Staten Island and our Bronx units to join up with units in Queens so we can continue to show the City and our region the Scouting is alive and well, and working to better our communities. Please push this event with your units at round table and any other way you can.
The camping events going on that weekend can be counted if they simply add a service component for an hour or 2 at the camp they are camping in. The “Hammer and Saw” event easily counts, we just need to know how many were there and how long and what was done.
We on the Committee for Outdoor Ethics and Conservation need your help to make this event a hit and hope to see each of you out there working with the kids. Should you have any questions, please reach out to me at this email or at my phone 646-643-9552.
Thanks in advance
