Parker Brewfest

Published by under Community Service on August 2, 2019

PARKER BREWFEST – SATURDAY AUGUST 17, 2019 For the 3rd consecutive year, the Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club has asked Troop 16 for our help during Parker Brewfest. This fundraising event allows the Rotary Club to provide financial assistance to local charitable and community causes as well as to international projects.

We are looking for both adult and scout volunteers to work 4 hour shifts on Saturday and in return you will have money deposited in your scout account. Based on last year’s results each shift worked by either an adult or a scout equated to about $50 in your account!

Our duties include bringing ice to the vendors throughout the event, filling and emptying water containers at each vendor station, trash duty, and helping with the setup and breakdown of the event.

If you have any questions you can contact Chuck Carboni (chuckcarboni@yahoo.com), otherwise please use the link below to sign up:
