As was announced at the Troop meeting, the US Postal Service is having a food drive. The food they have collected needs to be sorted. This is where they need your help.
On May 11th between 12 noon - 4:30pm the St James Post Office needs help sorting out all the food.
Buddy System is a Must on this since it is NOT a BSA sponsored event and adult leaders may not be present.
Service Hours are required for Rank Advancement.
