·       We will NOT have door tags this year. Our Council Committee is working on an alternative. Basically a sheet of paper with instructions for the home owner that will need to be inserted into every bag, stapled to every bag or rubber banded along with the bag to doors in the neighborhood. We apologize for this extra work but unfortunately we were unable to find sponsors to print the door tags. Council may be able to print enough for all units but we may be asking units to make extra copies.·        

Bags, Maps and other information should be available by the end of February. Units can pick up their materials on February 28 or March 1 between 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM at the Tops parking lot in Perinton, NY. Look for my black Chevy pick-up with the cap parked under the lights toward the back of the parking lot!,-77.4407866,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89d13311b8cb0b59:0xcf71a0c246ec304c!8m2!3d43.071047!4d-77.4385979

·        As mentioned on earlier emails we will not have lawn signs this year. Another result of a lack of sponsors. I hope your unit was able to save a sign or 2 from last year. Please check with your membership to see if anyone has a lawn sign to use. In the past, before lawn signs, units would construct their own signs (like a sandwich board type of sign) or old campaign signs. Do what you can with what you have.

·        Documents for your use can be found on the links and Docs page:

o   SFF Leaders Guide – This guide will give you step by step guidance on SFF. From the distributing of bags to the pickup and drop off at the collection site. PLEASE take time to read this over. It also has contact information for the Council.

o   SFF Tops Leaders Guide – For those units staffing our 2 Tops stores. Please review for any changes from last year.

o   SFF Unit Participation Form – Please fill this out and drop off at the Collection site on March 24.

o   SFF Drivers Pick Up Sign – For your use on vehicles driving around neighborhoods

o   How To Report Your Community Service Hours – This year you will receive a discount on SFF Patches when you report your service hours on line. Just attach a print out of your online report to the patch order form (coming soon) when you send it in to the Council office.

o   Patch order form .
