Middlesex County Fair

August 1st through August 7th

Middlesex District will be hosting a booth at the Middlesex County Fair in East Brunswick, NJ

We are asking that each unit in our district help out with a 2 hour time slot. We are in the booth to answer questions, recruit, explain scouting to new parents, and hear stories from parents who have been in the program. You are asked to wear your Class A uniform. This is for all Scouts and Leaders. You will need to wear your Class A uniform to gain entrance to the Fair. More details will be sent closer to the fair.

It is a wonderful opportunity to “strut our stuff.” Last year BeAScout.org was busy while we were at the Fair. Please make sure that your site is up to date.

Registration is first come, first serve. Please provide a telephone number for a leader who will be manning the booth. Weekday slots from 5 PM – 7 PM are reserved for Cub Scout Packs only. Register below or see the form in its own window.

Thanks for all you do for Scouting.

If you have any questions, please contact Katherine Anouna or Anthony Cullen
