About the Southern Sierra Council





There will not be a Kern County Fair this fall. However, Bakersfield still needs its baked potatoes with special toppings. So, the Southern Sierra Council will be setting up several potato booths later this month to make these savory spuds available to the public. Pre-orders and drive-thru service will be the preferred methods to serve our customers.




Here are the dates and locations for the Potato Booths:

·     The Bridge Church – 12225 Stockdale Highway

·     Friday, September 25, 11am to 7pm

·     Saturday, September 26, 11am to 7pm

·     Friday, October 2, 11am to 7pm

·     Saturday, October 3, 11am to 7pm


·     Heidi’s Deli – 2900 Calloway Drive

·     Friday, September 25, 11am to 7pm

·     Saturday, September 26, 11am to 7pm

·     Friday, October 2, 11am to 7pm

·     Saturday, October 3, 11am to 7pm


We need Scouts and adults to operate these booths and make those potatoes the masses want. The dates are Friday, September 25, Saturday, September 26, Friday October 2, and Saturday, October 3. There will be two shifts at both locations each day. All participants will receive a potato and a drink during their shift.


Click HERE for the sign-up sheet. Send your requested shifts (date/location/time) to randy.saunders@scouting.org. The sign-up sheet is also available at the Scout Office.


This is an excellent service opportunity and we’ll be operating with all health and safety expectations being met.
