Warrington Triatholon Service Project

Just a gentle reminder since I only got a few responses.  Please remember that its very important that we give back to our local community.

Community service is an integral part of scouting.  Giving back to our local community is very important.  Towards those ends, we are always looking for ways to assist or help out.  Warrington Township is sponsoring a Tri-Athalon on September 11. They reached out to us asking for some help.  If you can help out in any way, please let me know.  There will be a meeting to go over your tasks, so its important that I know who will be able to help out.  I am including part of the email from the organizer which details the kinds of help they are looking for, so let me know if you are interested in a particular one.
Volunteers needed:
lap counters at the swim
