Local Scouts Will Have A Good Turn Day Cub and Boy Scouts of the Prairie Gold Area Council are currently making plans to conduct their annual "Good Turn Day for the Handicapped" clothing drive. This nation-wide program is another of the good turn events which highlight the scouting activities in Algona. This drive is not for an organization's profitable gain, but it is a means of income for 140 handicapped workers who are self-supporting instead of state supported. These handicapped workers are taxpayers, not tax burdens. Boys Scouts have given time and effort in order to help these people. This is a voluntary project which the Prairie Gold Council has agreed to be a part of and they need the support of the citizens of the council area to make this drive another success. April 22, Cub Scouts, under the leadership of Cubmasters, Rev. Merlin Davies and Ed Sindelar and the den mothers, will distribute a scout "Good Turn Day Bag" to all of the homes in Algona. These bags should be filled with wearable and repairable clothing and materials, and small household appliances, which the Handicapped can process for resale in their retail stores and provide weekly wages. Then April 29, the Boy Scouts, with Scoutmasters Roy Burris and Richard Beisell in charge, will return to the homes to collect the filled bags for delivery to Goodwill Industries in Sioux City. This "Good Turn Day Drive" by the Scouts of the Prairie Gold Area Council, last year supplied the Handicapped workers with materials to keep them employed the entire summer months when collections were at a low level.
