Fall Festival Signup - Adults badly needed

Hello, Scouting families. We are the final countdown for Fall Festival weekend at St. Odilia. We have nearly all of the youth spots filled with just the mid-afternoon shift on Saturday having open youth spots. Where we are in greatest need is from parents to help fill shifts. Our youth do a great job of managing the games with our Service Coordinators, Stephen and Mason, in charge of distributing crew to the games and keeping them stocked with prizes. 2 Adults will be in charge of the Scouting Mobile Archery Range, ensuring safe use by all participants. The others will float in helping out where needed and covering the Recruiting booth. This entails answering questions of interested families and sharing their stories of how Scouting has affected your children.

Please review the open slots this weekend and compare it against your family schedule to see if you can possibly assist us in our efforts to serve our Chartered Organization, raise money for our Church Community and recruit more families to join our Scouting programs across all school ages. Here is the signup link. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E084BA5AC2CA13-fall2

A reminder to all volunteers to please wear your uniform when working your shifts, either your Class B Eagle T-Shirt or your Tan uniform shirt. There is rain predicted both days, so please plan for the weather. The games are run rain or shine. Adult leaders are encouraged to wear their uniform to be more visible as an adult leader and help with recruiting. Show up at least 10 minutes early for your shift to check in and determine where you will be needed to start your shift. Please bring a great attitude and enthusiasm to give a great experience to our customers and demonstrate what it means to be a Scout.

If you are an adult signed up to help this weekend, please take some time to review the safe and cheerful handling of the Scouting Mobile Archery Booth. I have provided links below.
