It’s that time of the year again! We are asking the entire Pack 1776 Cub Scout family to participate in the sales of our Cotton Candy Fundraiser at the 2015 San Ramon Art & Wind Festival.  We will be at booth #382 by the tennis courts

Pack 1776 gets a major funding boost from this event and we definitely need volunteer support from all of our dens.

There are still afternoon openings available and we encourage you to click here to sign up now !

In an effort to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate, please note the following guidelines:

1.) At least one parent is required to be with their participating scout in this fundraiser but the entire family is most welcome to join and have fun.

2.) Each shift must have at least 1 Scout Leader present. There will be no more than 4 scouts present inside the booth during any shift.

3.) Try to remember to maintain a Scout attitude while participating in this fundraiser. Don't forget that you are all perfect 1776 Gentlemen. We should always thank those who we have asked and always wish them a good day, to encourage proper attitude demonstrating good manners and conduct.

Please contact Marcos Perez if you have any questions.
