The holidays must be just around the corner.

Scouts are out once more in our neighborhoods this morning to leave white plastic bags on our doors to be filled with dry goods for the food bank.

Local Boy Scout mother Vicki Shurr left a reminder on Facebook: “Our local Boy Scouts will be in your neighborhood this morning beginning about 9 a.m. They will be placing plastic bags near your front door for the Scouting for Food drive.”

Shurr said the bags will be picked up next Saturday.

“Please watch for our boys as you are driving in and out of your neighborhood. They have a large area to cover and hustle,” Shurr wrote.

The Scouting For Food Drive will cover the neighborhoods of Lake Holiday, Greentree, Wynd & Tide, Bel-Mar, Lake Minterwood, Emerald Shores and Lake of the Woods.

Last year about a dozen Scouts spanned out on Key Peninsula neighborhoods collecting hundreds of bags of food. 

Good morning Longbranch.
