5/10 - Elk's Club Pavillion Cleanup
MARK THE CALENDAR!  All hands on deck!  The annual spring cleanup at the Elk's Club Pavilion is scheduled for Saturday May 10th.  We start promptly at 8am until we are done (normally before Noon).  The more  Scouts and adults - the faster we finish.  The more tools we have (leaf blowers, rakes, etc.) the faster we finish.  Please watch for more detail.  This community service effort allows us to use the Elk's Club Pavilion for FREE at our end of the year picnic in May each year.  That is a savings of approx $600!
