Dear Patron,

Please help support our Scout Troop by donating an item for our Silent Auction. The Silent Auction is part of our Beerwood Derby fundraiser to be held Saturday, April 1st, 2017. Your support helps us to keep costs manageable so that the promise of Scouting can be offered to all young men, regardless of financial standing. We have been delivering on that promise for the past 107 years and with the help of the greater community we are able to offer a quality program. Some of the things we do are a weeklong camp at Tomahawk Scout Camp in Birchwood Wisconsin, hiking at Glacier National Park and in the mountains of New Mexico. We also promote civic involvement through service projects and such, like holding a Bingo with the Veterans night at the Minneapolis Veterans Home, Feed My Starving Children, as well as neighborhood cleanups.

For us to do some of these things we need funding. To raise these funds we do one major fundraiser a year called the Beerwood Derby. This event is sort of like the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby only for adults and includes racing, a lunch, and a silent auction. The Silent Auction portion of this event has been very successful for us in the past and this is due in large part by generous donations from the businesses and people of our community. We appreciate any support you can provide and thank you in advance for your consideration. If you have any questions or would like to join us at this event please feel free to contact me.

Respectfully,

Mark Marrone        Troop 1 Scoutmaster
