Boy Scouts plan bottle/can drive

ESCANABA – Boy Scout Troop 411 of Escanaba will again conduct a bottle and can drive as a fund raiser on Saturday, July 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to support Troop functions. Scouts and leaders will be in Uniform and collecting your bottles and cans at Elmer’s County Market, Super One Foods, and at Wal-Mart.

All of the funds raised at the bottle and can drive stay here in Escanaba with the Troop and the area boys. The funds along with the annual popcorn sale are the major funding sources for the troop.

The funds help the Troop provide a quality program to the boys, and help fund events like going to: Camp Hiawatha, Mackinac Island Service Camp, National Youth Leadership Training and many more.

Area residents are asked to start saving up their return-ables to help support the area Boy Scouts. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

For more information about the drive or is anyone has a bag of cans ready for pick-up, call Scoutmaster Gene Williams at (906) 399-7602.
