Parker Days 2018 – Sign Up Now Open

Published by under Community Service on May 12, 2018

The Parker Days Festival will be held in downtown Parker on June 7 – 10, 2018.    We will also provide one crew for final clean-up on the morning of June 11, 2018.  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.  The ages next to the signups are just suggestions. Typically our younger scouts (1st and 2nd year scouts) work the morning and day shifts and our older scouts work the late night shifts. Again, these are only suggestions. Please sign up when it is convenient for your family. 

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.

Here is a clarification of the different Adult sign up options:

Shift Leader (Works Troop HQ tent): In years past, scout moms have worked these shifts, but it can be any adult.

Rover (Oversees trash needs in park and typically drives golf cart around getting trash loaded onto cart and taking the trash to the dumpsters.)  

Adult Leader (Leads Scouts in trash pickup. You will walk around with an assigned group of boys to make sure the trash is picked up and work is getting done.)

Lastly, your Parker Days committee (Daniel Faust, Tom Loveland, and Beth Huffman) thank you for your service to the troop. We want to thank everyone that has ever worked at Parker Days as this is a large group effort.  We hear all the time about what a great troop we have and how hard working we are and it makes us smile every time knowing that you all have contributed to the high regard we have within the community.
