Parker Days 2017 Signup

Posted by Ryan on June 1, 2017

The Parker Days Festival will be held in downtown Parker on June 8 – 11, 2017.    We will also provide one crew for final clean-up on the morning of June 12, 2017.  Each year, Troop 16 provides hundreds of hours of service taking care of all the trash at the Parker Days Festival as the biggest of our 3 annual fund raisers.  All Troop 16 members are required to participate.

This year the requirement is that every scout needs to work 8 hours during the weekend.  The first 4 hours take care of the commitment needed for the troop.  The second four hours can be used to get a free all day ride pass or to be used as service hours for rank advancement.  We are asking this year that you do not sign up any siblings this year.  Please feel free to bring them during the shift and we will put them to work, but we want the sign up to be for the scouts.  If you want to let the shift leader know that a sibling is coming that would be very kind, one of our scout laws.

Lastly, your Parker Days committee, Daniel Faust, Tom Loveland, Adam Ozimek and Ryan Mead, thank you for your service to the troop.  As this is the last Parker Days for Daniel and Ryan, we want to thank everyone that has ever worked at Parker Days since we have been in charge of it.  We hear all the time about what a great troop we have and how hard working we are and it makes me smile every time knowing that you all have contributed to the high regard we have within the community.
