Have van, will travel!


At least that is what members
of Miami Lakes Boy Scout Troop
49 used to say. However, their 14year old van which has served
them well on monthly outings to
campsites north, south and in
between. is now in ill-repair and
needs to be replaced.
As part of a fundraising effort
to purchase a new van, Scout
Master Bob Swanson and his parent volunteers, along with all 20
members of Troop 49 will hold an
auction at 8 p.m. on Friday, May
7, during the re-opening of Main
Street Live entertainment.
"Our purpose is to support the
opportunities that are afforded the
boys through various programs
throughout the year. The van has
the capacity to transport all of the
scouts to an event. It really takes
the place of four or five vehicles,"
Swanson said.
The Boy Scouts are hoping to
get local businesses and residents
to support the auction either
through donations or bidding on
the donated items.
"We are soliciting businesses in
the community to donate items,
services and gift certificates to
support the
said Nirrna
Pina, volunteer parent.
According to Pina, items will
include: airline tickets, a cruise
package, dinners for two, hotel

by working at special events such


as the Miami Lakes Festival of
Lights and Country Holiday
Crafts Show sponsored by The
Graham Companies on Main
Street.

donating to the auction, call: 305362-3961.

The auction will be conducted


at the comer of Main Street and
New Barn Road as a featured attraction of the Main Street Live
Classic Car Cruise on Friday, May 7.
During the rest of the year, the
Scouts raise money for projects
and materials that support their
programs and badge requirements
