Scouts hosting recycling drive

BRIDGEPORT – Lytton Sanitation is teaming up with Cubmaster Frank Manteau of Pack 109 and Pack 21 for a recycling paper drive.

Ted Downing, the superintendent of the Bridgeport School District, is also assisting by hosting the recycling drive.

The drive will take place on June 18 and 19 from 1-5 p.m. and will be an old fashioned paper drive along with a donation-only yard sale.

The drive will be located in the front row of the parking lot at the Bridgeport school complex.

There will be a large gray enclosed box for the drive.

Come out and support these two Cub Scout Packs by bringing any type of newspaper, phone books, magazines, cardboard … any type of paper.

Afterward, feel free to shop at the yard sale. Take anything and leave a donation. This is a fundraiser to help keep the cost of future outings down for the cub scouts.

Manteau would also like to thank Cool Draft Scientifics for helping keep everyone working the event cool by donating two of its misting systems.

Both packs are located within the Mountaineer District of the Ohio River Valley Council. Pack 109 is based in Bridgeport and chartered by Bridgeport Church of God. Pack 21, based on Wheeling Island, is chartered by The After School 21st Century Anchor Program at Madison Elementary.
