Troop 24 Families:

Please join us on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 14TH AT 1:00 PM for some holiday merriment at the Brookfield Zoo tree trim. With a mask, of course. Troop 24’s “community tree” is located along the walkways within the zoo. Our tree is number 449, located on the North Mall, near
The Carousel.
• We have 20 ZOO PASSES AND FIVE SOUTH LOT PARKING PASSES available for the event. We’ll arrange retrieval of the passes at a later date.
• If you have a Zoo membership, you can simply visit the zoo at 1:00 PM and join us.
• The sign in front of our tree will read:
o Decorated by: Riverside Scout Troop 24
o Donated by: Riverside Scout Troop 24
o Town: Riverside
• Layouts of the malls will be posted at the gate to help us find our tree within the zoo.
• Let’s be creative!
• Click here to review the Zoo’s Tree Trim ornament guidelines. The Zoo will remove tinsel, glass/breakable ornaments, and decorations made with food.
• Finally, if you would like to donate an ornament for the tree but can’t attend the event, a box will be placed in the Church front door alcove for your donation, sometime in November.
• Click here to register for this festive outdoor event!
