Beautify Bedford Event – May 7th
On Saturday, May 7th, we will be holding our annual event to help clean up Bedford. To participate in the event you need to:
Show up at the Bedford DPW lot (left of the DPW building across from Stop and Shop) any time between 9am and 2pm. Individual scouts (with parents) or groups welcomed. You will see our canopy set up in the parking lot.
You will be assigned an area in Bedford to clean up. Length of participation is entirely up to you. It’s good to plan on 1/2 hour to an hour of clean up depending on how many people are in your group.
There will be some work gloves available but if you have your own please do bring them. Trash bags will be provided. Please come prepared with bug spray and sun screen as needed.
Class B uniforms (Pack 194 T-shirts) and hats are recommended. This is our chance to show the community that the scouts are giving something back to the community that supports them year after year.
When you are done with your area, you can return to the DPW lot and leave trash bags at the dumpster there. If you see any large items that are too big to put in the bag or fit in your vehicle, note the location and that information will be passed on to the DPW for pick up later in the week.
Your Den Leader should be communicating with you shortly regarding this event. Some dens may choose to do this as a grouped den activity.
Since community service projects are an important part of Scouting, boys participating in this event will earn extra raffle tickets for our year end picnic event in June.
