Scouts Occupy Potter Patriot
This afternoon, rain or shine, nearly 100 Scouts, WWII reenactors and Civil War reenactors are set to encamp at Potter Park. Their goal is to help raise funds for the replacement of the Veteran’s Memorial there. Tonight’s overnight encampment will be followed by a day of ceremonies, games and other activities for the entire public to come and enjoy. The festivities begin at 10am and continue until 3pm. Operation Potter Patriot is the result of the collective efforts of the Boy Scout Troops of the Fairport area including Troops 207, 208, 209, 273, 325 and 469. Bring your kids or grandkids and enjoy a wonderful day full of interactive fun. Come and support the Scouts and local veterans by buying a brick or making a donation.
