Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.

All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.

NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J

Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also

This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…

Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.

Sincerely yours,


Glenn Benton

Touch A Truck 2014

Vehicle Information formCorporate Sponsor Form.


Name a child who wouldn’t love to climb aboard a fire truck, big rig or bulldozer! Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types – public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery and just plain cool – all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch, climb on and ask questions about their favorite trucks in a safe, supervised environment. Accompanying personnel will teach the children about the equipment displayed and how these machines help us and our community. Crafts, activities and kid-friendly food will be available to make this a perfectly entertaining day for the entire family!


Sunday, April 27, 2014 – Noon to 4 p.m.

“Be Prepared” is the Scout’s motto:  Rain date: May 3, 2014 – Noon to 4 p.m.



University Mall parking lot, Chapel Hill, NC


Boy Scout Troop 39, chartered by University United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill, is sponsoring the event.  Troop 39’s mission is to assist young men as they become knowledgeable, thinking, and responsible citizens of their community, nation, and world. The Boy Scouts of America teaches basic skills and knowledge needed to prepare young men to be well rounded individuals with an awareness of leadership, discipline, service, and study.


Through the North Carolina Children’s Hospital’s Promise Grant program and Troop 39’s programs, service projects and activities, all money raised will support children and the community. The hospital’s Promise Grant programs include camps for ill children, training for the parents of high-risk children, meals for families who have children at the hospital for extended periods of time, car seats for children with special needs, and more.


The event, the Troop’s fifth annual Touch A Truck, is expected to draw over 1,000 individuals and families from throughout the Triangle.  Over 1000 attended last year. Backpack fliers will be sent home with preschool and elementary school students again this year.  In addition, road signs, radio interviews, press releases and news coverage will be used to promote the event.


$5 per person, with a maximum of $20 per family. Children Under 2 are free.
