Sign up for your cleaning shift at the Elk's Lodge

Posted by nsouza on Sep 21 2020 - 2:43pm

Scouts, as a service to the Mission Viejo Elk's Lodge for allowing us to use their patio for our meetings, we need 2-4 scouts each Friday at 4:00-5:00 p.m. to clean up the patio area before their Friday night dinner meeting. Cleaning entails using an electric leaf blower to blow leaves and debris off the patio, wiping down the tables and chairs, and setting up placecards at the tables. All scouts are expected to take a turn at least once a quarter, ff not more. Please click on the Sign-up Genius link below to sign up for your shift.

Scouts, have you started selling popcorn yet? If not, get going! You can sell directly online to friends and family near or far, and their popcorn will be shipped directly to their home. And even better, if they buy before Sept 3, they'll get free shipping! Check out the online selling flyer attached. Or, you can download the attached order form and take orders, turn them in, then deliver the popcorn later. Make sure to maintain proper social distancing and contact-less selling and delivery if you choose this option. Deadline to turn in all popcorn orders is Wed, Oct. 21!
