Community Clean Up: June 3

The Fair Ridge community, home to many of our scouts and families, has organized a neighborhood community clean up next Saturday, June 3rd, and has asked for Pack 1863’s help.  The service project will be begin at 11:00 AM at the clubhouse/pool parking lot,12238 Apple Orchard Court, Fairfax, VA 22033.

The clean up project which will be immediately following the Annual Fair Ridge Family Run/Walk/Bike. Scouts are welcome to participate in the Fun Run event.  It is a one mile course and we are escorted by Fairfax County PD.  The Fun Run/Walk/Bike starts at 10 AM and Fair Oaks Unit bike patrol will also do a safety demonstration prior starting the walk/bike/run.  

The Fair Ridge Recreation Association will supply all materials for the clean up so we will just need scouts, parents and an hour or two of your time.  Scouts may wear either their Class A or B uniform.  The pool house will open for anyone who may want/need to change from the Fun Run.  Please let me know if you have any questions and see you there!
