Cemetery Cleanup on May 21st

Just a reminder that there will be another cemetery cleanup on Saturday, May 21st, from 9:00 – 1:00. It is not required for anyone to attend, but it is suggested as it gives back to community. I need a head count of who’s coming from the Troop by Sunday evening. Please email me whether or not you will be attending the cleanup, and if you are coming for the entire time or if you will be there late/be leaving early. I’ve attached a copy of the flyer.
