Boy Scout annual Trade-O-Ree this weekend

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

For the 15th straight year, active and former Boy Scouts can trade stories and memorabilia at the annual Trade-O-Ree.

The event runs from 4 to 10 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. until noon Saturday at the VFW Hall on North Kingshighway in Cape Girardeau, bringing vendors and scouts to trade old patches, pins and collectibles.

Local scoutmaster Brian Weiss said that, with the Boy Scouts organization turning 100 years old, there are a lot of memories to be shared. Admission each day is $1, but those wearing a Scouting uniform get in free.

Table rental for the weekend costs $8. Call 450-6763 to reserve a space.
