Scouts annual fundraiser begins

The annual month-long fundraiser for Boy Scout Troop 1 Jamestown is underway for the month of May, according to troop leader Robert Cassidy.

Troop 1 Jamestown is reaching out to the local business community for donations to support the Scouts. According to Cassidy, the troop is requesting a donation of $25 to sustain the quality of programs by defraying costs of the troop activities. However, he added, any amount of money is helpful.

To show their appreciation, Cassidy said the troop will display a large sandwich board to recognize all the donors near the Bomes Theatre at 34 Narragansett Ave. during the Memorial Day parade. They Scouts also will acknowledge their sponsors in The Jamestown Press.
