One of the troop’s primary fundraisers for the scouts is a Flag subscription service in conjunction with the North Colorado Springs Rotary International Club. Subscribers pay to have an American Flag placed on 5 US Holidays and the boys earn money every time they place or remove a Flag. We had 30 homes that were subscribers that were destroyed by the Waldo Canyon Fire. The Rotary Club called all of those affected and offered a refund. All subscribers declined the refund and requested to continue service. This morning our scouts placed Flags at those sites and one homeowner even showed up to take a photo. Thank you to all of those homeowners that have chosen to continue supporting scouting.
Happy Labor Day everyone.
