Fundraisers and appreciation

Carbondale Boy Scout Troop 235 is looking to travel to Washington, D.C., next year to attend the National Boy Scout Jamboree, which will be the 100th anniversary of scouting in America.
The troop will be out holding a fundraising car wash on Saturday, June 6, from 7:30 a.m. until noon behind the Dollar Store on Highway 133. Look for the signs. Stop by and help the troop out and get your car washed.
Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.
