Symphony on the Prairie (SOTP)

It’s that time of year again to EARN money for your scout account and have the opportunity to listen to great music with your family and friends!

What is it: neatly & precisely setting up tables & chairs for the symphony patrons at Connor Prairie in your CLASS B UNIFORM

Where is it: 13400 Aliisonville Road. Meet at the flagpole in front of the stage.

How to get to the stage: after turning into the main entrance, take the first right before the main parking lot. Follow the road behind the Apple Store. Proceed to the 4 way stop and take a left. Follow that until you come to a small parking lot near the stage.

Who may help: each registered Troop 199 scout may bring up to TWO volunteers at least 16 years of age to earn money towards his scout account.

Volunteers participating in the setups, resets, & teardowns receive free admission to that evening’s concert. Concerts begin at 8:00 with gates opening at 6:00 (unless otherwise noted).

Why participate: average earnings last year among ~50 scouts were $150/scout with some earning $500 – $800.

Only those actively working the entire shift will receive full hourly wages. This is a labor intensive fundraiser, but scouts are well compensated for their effort.

When is it: Fridays: 12:00pm for set ups; Saturdays: 12:00pm for resets; Saturday nights: ~10:00pm for teardowns – need to arrive before the end of intermission to park near the stage ~9:15pm.
