One Giant Leap Service Opportunity

On October 10th at West Side Park in Champaign, will be the largest, and most exciting leap frog competition ever! Of course, there will be a Leap Frog competition between the teams that sign up, but there will be fun events for all ages, and of course great food! But it takes a great amount of people to make this event a success, and as the Brotherhood of Cheerful service we have been called upon to help! We need your help from about 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday October 10th! Can't make it all day? That''s okay! Just mark when you can help on the form! This is a great service opportunity that you won't want to miss! Please sign up by filling out the following online form. If you have any questions please email us at The Lodge, and Prairielands Council thanks you for your service!
