Rummage Sale Reminder

This message is to remind all pup candidate families that there will be a rummage sale at Lin’s Market on the corner of Sunset Ave and Dixie Downs Road. It will be Saturday June 2nd from 8 am to 3 pm. The sale is to raise money for the Devil Pups. We still need more donated items for the sale. If you, your neighbors or your relatives have things to donate it would be greatly appreciated.
If you cannot bring the items to Lin’s Market Saturday morning by 0730, please contact us and we will make arrangements to pick up the donated items. Pick ups can be arranged on May 30th, 31st or June 1st.  
Thank you for helping out with this project.

Rummage Sale 2012

SoUtah Devil Pups will be holding a garage sale on Saturday, June 2, to raise funds for this year's Devil Pup program.  It will be held in the Linn's market parking lot.  If any Devil Pup candidates can assist in organizing, selling and cleaning up, please come to the sale which will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (or when sold out).  If you have items you'd like to donate to make our fund raiser even better, please bring your items with you on Saturday the 2nd of June.

Congratulations to everyone for the good job in attendance and hard work at the first car wash.  Due to your great sales jobs and catching a few cars off the street on Saturday, you have helped us earn over $500 towards camp costs. 

The top three salesmen for this car wash were Chance McPhie, Greysten Saxton and Parker Thayer.  Good job, Candidates!! 

Be working hard on those PFT requirements for the next test on Saturday, June 16.  Your scores and willingness to work for Devil Pup camp costs will determine who can fill the seven slots we have as our quota for Southern Utah.  There are still 11 candidates vying for those seven slots, so PFT scores will be extremely important.

May 12 is the first Devil Pup Car Wash of the 2012 season.  Each Devil Pup candidate will be required to sell 10 tickets – to family, friends, neighbors, etc. – as a way to raise part of your $100 portion of your camp fee.  Those candidates from the Dixie HS JROTC program will have received your envelope of 10 tickets already from Doc Thomas.  For those of you who are not associated with the JROTC program, you will receive a PDF of the tickets to print, separate and sell.  
Selling tickets ahead of time is a good way to raise funds for the Devil Pup program.  Friends and family can purchase a ticket (or tickets) even if they don’t plan to attend the car wash.  They may prefer to call it a donation to help you go to Devil Pup camp.  If they do want to have their car washed, they can come to the Hilltop Car Wash facility on St. George Boulevard and present their ticket, showing that they have already paid.  The time of the car wash is from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 
Bring your envelope full of cash from the sale of your tickets to the car wash.  Please enter your name on the outside of the envelope along with the amount of money inside.  There will be a member of the Marine Corps League assisting at the car wash who will take these envelopes and make sure you are credited for the money you earned.
Please call Col. Toole at (435) 652-3998 if you have a conflict and are unable to attend the car wash.  You should still sell your envelope of tickets.
There will be one more car wash on June 16 (right after the PFT).  The PFT will start at 9:00 a.m. and you will then proceed to Hilltop Car Wash on St. George Boulevard to work at the car wash from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Again, you will be required to sell 10 tickets – which will be provided to you at a later date.  If you have questions, you can e-mail Donna Toole, the SoUtah Devil Pups Coordinator at dtoole@sunrivertoday.com.
