Civic League partners with Boy Scout Troop 462
The Franklin Township Civic League is proud to partner with Boy Scout Troop 462 to increase efforts to build our membership and spread the message about the great works the League is doing in the Franklin Township Community. One of our Board Members, Cookie Kight, had been talking with Scoutmaster Tim Schubach about the Civic League and our mission, and Tim was happy to help. On March 1, members of Troop 462 began canvassing neighborhoods with Civic League membership forms.
Joining the League is only $33 per year. As many of you know, with your paid membership you receive a free subscription to the Franklin Township Informer newspaper and support the things we coordinate and fund including the Mary Meier Family Assistance Fund, the Pass It Down Coat Drive for Kids, the annual Flu Shot Clinic, all township clean ups, community forums and various other programs, including an annual Willa Mae Wolfe Community Service Scholarship, as well as donations and support to many community service and youth organizations. We support other Township causes, such as the Acton Veterans' Memorial by helping to raise funds and coordinate donations. The Civic League also assists residents in participating in land use and infrastructure issues in our community and provides a large community room at no charge for meetings of other not-for-profit township groups.
We are proud to be working with Troop 462. Boy Scout Troop 462, chartered through Nativity Catholic Church, has been in existence since 1968. The troop meets every Tuesday evening at Nativity and has been an active member of Franklin Township since its inception, providing service to various groups throughout the community. Among the troop's favorite activities are participating in the Acton Memorial Day Parade and helping to sort donated food for the Franklin Township Civic League in November. The troop boasts dozens of Eagle Scouts. The service projects performed by these Eagle scouts include restoration work for the Franklin Township Historical Society and the clean-up and replacement of fencing at the various cemeteries that the Township maintains.
The Civic League will be donating $5 of every new subscription to Troop 462. So, by joining today you will be helping the community in two ways. Thank you to everyone for your support. If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Foulk at 317-498-3277 or email@example.com.
