Peach Festival

The Peach Festival, Saturday September 12th, is quickly approaching.

Every year, Troop 6 helps DUMC with this event. It is one of our main “Service to Sponsor” and it is an important fundraiser for the church. Every year it is a huge success and we would like for this year to be the same!

We need the help from Troop 6 in 3 major areas.

Water and Soda donations
There is not a standard meeting at the church for you to bring your donations before the event. Here are the ways you can donate your water and/or soda.

Bring them to the church on Monday at 7:00 PM. Drop them off, at your convience, at my house. My address is 23 Vale View Dr. Doylestown. I am also happy to pick them up from you if that makes it is easier.
Bring them to the church the night before, Friday September 11th at 6:30. We will be there setting up so we can accept the donations then.
If you can please send me an email and let me know how you would like to get me your donations, I would appreciate it. I would like to be able to gauge the amount we have so I can plan the shopping accordingly, if necessary.

2 Grills
We are also in need of 2 grills to use for the day of the Peach Festival. If you have a grill we can borrow, and if you can bring it to the Church on Saturday morning, that would be great!! Please let me know.

This is a mandatory Troop event and we need all the help we can get!

If you have any questions, please contact me directly at Chris Strickland
