Boy Scouts help tear down Mountain Festival booths during rainstorm

Good News Tehachapi

Tehachapi Boy Scout Troop 3 was boothing at Mountain Festival on Aug. 19, selling beef jerky to fundraise for their future activites, when tropical storm Hilary decided to drop in. As the rain picked up dramatically, the Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce was forced to shut down the event, but not before washing out vendors and festival-goers. After quickly packing up their booth, boys from Troop 3 rushed through the pouring rain to stack chairs and take down tables from the event's outdoor dining area. Then, soaking wet, they proceeded to assist other vendors in taking down booths, all of their own accord.

"[They're] good young people," said Troop Leader Garrett Kendrick, "I'm blown away by them daily."
