Bottle Drive

Good evening all CJ participants!

The first CJ fundraiser is upon us! We are very excited to start the Scouts on their first fundraising adventure with a Bottle Drive throughout Barrhaven TuesdayMay 24th from 5pm-9pm

We are meeting at Ken Ross Park (previously called South Nepean Park) beside Longfield Davidson School at 5pm. We will have Scouters and cars available at that starting location. The youth will be grouped with 2 Scouters and sent into the Barrhaven area with maps to go door to door collecting bottles. 

The central communication hub and drop off point for all bottles will be 500 Elm Park Ave (near Ken Ross Park). This will also be the Pick-up location for any Scouts or Cubs at the end of the drive. Once the bottle drive begins, this location (500 Elm Park Ave) will be the location to meet if you cannot make the 5pm start. 

We are looking for driving help. We need adult volunteers to drive and assist with sorting of the bottles that night. If you are able to help, please respond to and let me know that you are available to help that night. 

Reminder, that the youth will receive a portion of the moneys earned for this bottle drive only if they attend and help with the bottle drive.

Owl Scouts & Scouters: Please respond to if you are attending and if you will have a vehicle. We do require ratio from Owl Troop for your youth. 

Cougar Pack Cubs: Please respond to if you are attending and if you will have a vehicle. We will require ratio from Cougar Pack for your youth.

Please dress for the weather. All details and instructions will be communicated the day of the event. I look forward to seeing everyone then!

PS: Feel free to print and pass out this poster to your fiends and family! We will not be advertising in advance due to the issue of others poaching the bottles.
