Greetings Scouts! Lake Forest Day is right around the corner! We need help with raffle sales and concession sales. Please sign up now!

So far we only have 5 Scouts signed up for raffle sales this weekend. You do not need to bring anything for raffle sales. A Legion member will be there and bring everything needed and handle all the money. The Scouts are there to help out as needed (and it is a good opportunity to talk to a Veteran!)
