POLKVILLE DAY 2008
Dear Boy Scouts,
On September 20, 2008, the Town of Polkville is proud to host the 3rd Annual Polkville Day 2008. This year’s theme will feature bluegrass music at the “Music Barn” and the Inaugural Bluegrass 5K Run/Walk, as well as other fun activities. Polkville Day 2008 is estimated to have approximately 1,000 people in attendance. The Town of Polkville is asking for your support for this year’s event. We need volunteers to work our aide and water stations during the competition.
This event serves as a fun day for the people in our community and surrounding communities. It also serves as a critical fundraiser for many vital items for our citizens including the Polkville Fire Department, the Polkville Library, and Polkville Civic Center. Specifically, we hope to raise funds for our Fire Department, Park improvements, resurfacing our recreational trail, Civic Center maintenance, and much needed renovations to our library restrooms. The Inaugural Bluegrass 5K Run/Walk is a new addition to this event and is aimed at promoting physical activity and wellness. Individuals and teams are being asked to participate in the run and walk. Visit www.polkville.org for more information on Polkville Day 2008 and race registration.
Thank you in advance for your support and the Town of Polkville really appreciates your involvement in this event. Donate your time and join us for this fun day of bluegrass music, competition, and other exciting attractions in Polkville. Your help makes this event possible. If you would like more information visit www.polkville.org, call or email me, or contact Robert Miles at 601-537-3115 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

An important event called “DTV Transition” which will take place February 17, 2009. I am very pleased that the Andrew Jackson Council is supportive of helping our communities’ most vulnerable individuals adjust to this change. I am providing a few links that will more fully explain this transition.
We are in the nascent stages of developing an outreach plan, a grassroots effort, to reach as many folks as possible. We are currently identifying appropriate partners and gaining support. We hope to have a plan in place by April 1, 2008.
Of course, MPB will broadcast television and radio spots informing its audience of this transition, but we realize that this is not enough. Your assistance in this effort is invaluable. The number of scouts and their parents alone will provide a tremendous impact in the community. Perhaps the scouts could also help in this effort by taking into their respective churches?
Thank you in advance for your assistance. I look forward to working with you on this effort. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at the number below. I will be in touch again soon.

As a former boy scout member myself, I know and appreciate your organizations commitment to enjoying and preserving the environment. I believe this activity will prove to be meaningful in making youth in our community aware of the importance of clean water and air for mankind. As requested, a general description is as follows:
The Boy Scouts would be required to place approximately 300 markers provided by the City of Jackson on storm drain inlets along streets selected by the City. The purpose of the markers is to make the public more aware of the need to not put any oils, harmful chemicals and other pollutants into the storm drain system. The storm drains are for rain water only. The activity should be completed by October 2008. The scouts will require adult supervision at all times near the roadways. The number of makers placed on each assigned street must be recorded and reported to my office immediately following the activity.
Please let me know of a date when your group can be available. We can provide additional information once we hear from you. Thank you again for your interest!
