One of the last big events of our scouting year as a Service Unit is participating in the MEMORIAL DAY events around town. There are three ways your troop can get involved at ANY age!
Help out at the Veterans Breakfast (7th Graders through Adults)
Saturday May 25th (Rain or Shine)
We need helpers to come serve breakfast to our Hillsborough Veterans before the parade and to possibly help with outdoor setup as well. You'll need to arrive at 7am to help setup and you'll be done by about 10am. See the attached flyer for details and how to sign up - please RSVP by NEXT FRIDAY May 10th directly to the event coordinator Renee DelCore! This is a great way to honor those who gave up a big portion of their lives to serve our country.
Make Cards for Veterans (Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette)
Sign up to take a pack of 25 cards & envelopes to decorate in a Patriotic way to thank the Veterans of Hillsborough for their Service to our nation. The cards are given to the Vets at the breakfast tables and are a HUGE hit that they look forward to each year. We need 200 cards so please help out by taking a pack or two! You can pickup the cards beginning Friday May 3rd at 810 Atkinson Circle in the Girl Scout bin up near the garage doors and can drop them off at the same place, no later than May 22nd (the breakfast is the 25th). Here's the link to the SIGN UP to reserve your card pack(s): https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054fa5a823abf49-memorial
March in the PARADE (All Ages)

Come out in your scout uniform (at least sash/vest/smock and SU Spiritwear/something patriotic) to march in the parade! It is SO exciting! Line up around 10am and the parade starts at 10:30. Carry a troop sign or banner and don't forget to bring candy to toss to the spectators! More info on the flyer.
