As you know, our troop has been participating with Matthews Alive, held each Labor Day weekend, as a source of fundraising for 15+ years. Proceeds go towards scout’s dues, or in the case of next year’s proposed high adventure trip, towards trip fees. This is to inform you that I have been advised that the Matthews Alive coordinators have made the decision to cancel the event this year due to COVID-19.
We do realize that most of us enjoy working the festival as it is a lucrative way to pay dues, so we will try to explore some other fundraising opportunities to help scouts pay their dues obligations for the coming year.
If you have any questions or fundraising suggestions, please email Cindy at email@example.com.
