Scouts start bottle and food drive
The summer months often have everyone very busy with our outdoor activies as we try to take advantage of the warm weather and the break from the cold weather.  However, what doesn’t get a break is the need within the community for some assistance with food needs to get through the week.

Therefore, Boy Scout Troop 603 is hosting a bottle/food drive on Thursday, Aug. 16 from 6-8 p.m. to benefit the Milton Family Community Center food shelf. We will be accepting donations of bottles, food or monetary donations to help the food shelf with its ongoing needs to get them through the summer.

If you wish us to stop by and pick up bottles and/or food please contact Cheryl Persitz at 324-8108 or You may also reach us on facebook or on our website

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
