Clean the Bay Day (6/7/2014)

First Landing State Park-Beach/Campground:

Clean the bay day is a core Scouting event.  We talk about "leave no trace" and being good to the environment a great deal.  Nothing will drive that home more than supporting this great cause.  Unless you have a commitment between 9-12am, this is something that the boys would have a great time doing and help continue to mold them into great Scouts.

Please let your Den Leader know if you are able to support this great cause.

Download the Parental Permission form and bring it with you the day of the event.  

Thank you for volunteering for Clean the Bay Day on Saturday, June 7th  (9 am ‑ 12 noon).
