Scouts wanted for Arlington house project

I am following up on our Foundations plan to assist a needy homeowner with cleaning her yard.  Late last year you visited our Foundation and you were interested in being involved with our project.  If you are still interested in having a Troop or group of scouts being involved, we are planning to work on the yard on April 5, 2014 beginning at 9:00 AM and hopefully finish by Noon.
Please contact me and confirm your interest.
Thank you, Larry W. Johnson, RCE President/CEO Arlington Board of REALTORS® 817 701-2490 Arlington, Tx.
