WE NEED YOUR HELP CYPRESS SCOUTING UNITS!
Lone Star College is hosting their annual Cy-Fest celebration, Saturday November 1st from 10am to 2pm. They have invited Scouting Units from the Cypress-Fairbanks are to promote and showcase the Scouting Program! We have a large area that they are providing to us for games and demonstrations.
Cub Scout Packs - We are looking for fun activities, if you have games or demonstrations that you have used for Scout Fair, this would be perfect for this festival.
Boy Scout Troops - We'd like to do the same thing we did for the Big Cypress Troop fair, bring out a trailer and show off your camp site mock up, games and displays.
Venture Crews and Ships - Bring out your displays (or even a boat!), we need volunteers to help manage the entire Scout area as well.
This is a HUGE opportunity to show off our Scouting Program to to the Cypress-Fairbanks Community!!! We HIGHLY encourage ALL of our Units to participate. We understand that we've got a short time frame to get this organized but the outreach and recruiting opportunities will be well worth the effort.
For more info, contact the following AWESOME volunteers:
Lone Star College - "Cy-Fest is a day of free family fun and it’s our gift to the community! Our employees, students and community members donate resources and volunteer time to make this event possible each year. Thanks to many local businesses and community partners this free event with something for all ages has been drawing thousands of smiles since 2005. Nearly 10,000 community members attended Cy-Fest in 2013."
Mark Your Calendars......Cub Scout Day Camp is just around the corner!
June 8-11 from 8:00-2:00pm OR 3:00-8:30pm at Cy-Fair Exhibition Center
Day Camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st – 5th grade. Scouts earn rank advancements, learn new skills, play sports and games, make crafts and have archery fun! Participants receive a t-shirt and patch.
Our theme this year is Hometown Heros! At camp, Cub Scouts will salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure each and every day. Do Your Best! One person can make a difference. One person who helps can change someone’s world. Maybe one day the hero will be you or your Cub Scout.
Saturday, November 15 is Community Service Day! Don't get left out, register your units and Service Project now!
