December Campout this Weekend
The December Campout is this weekend, December 5th – 7th at Pentzien Lodge, Camp Eagle (Get Directions). Hopefully everyone planning to attend has signed up already. This is the “electronics” campout, so feel free to bring any electronics, board games, card games, etc. to share with the Troop. Several people have already signed up to bring TVs and XBoxs. We will be staying in a cabin but tents will be available if Scouts are interested in sleeping outside. Scouts may also want to bring a cot if they have one as there are no sleeping bunks in the lodge. All Scouts must have coats, hat, gloves, etc. for outdoor activities.
Please meet at the Church no later than 5:40 p.m. for a 6:00 p.m. departure. We will be providing pizza for dinner on Friday night. The Scouts will have a White Elephant gift exchange for anyone who brings a $10.00 – $15.00 gift. Please, no food, toilet paper, or duct tape.
Court of Honor
The December Court of Honor will be held this coming Monday, December 8th at the regular meeting time. All parents are invited to attend, especially if your Scout will be advancing in Rank or receiving Merit Badges. Scouts must wear proper attire. Parents are asked to bring a dessert to share after the Court of Honor.
The Troop is signed up to ring bells to raise money for the Salvation Army on Saturday, December 13th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Baker’s Supermarket on 173rd and Center (Get Directions). There will be a sign up sheet at Monday’s meeting. Please plan to help out if you can.
[Pssst, it also counts as service hours.]
To celebrate the Holiday season, the Scouts will be making fleece tie blankets for the Church to distribute to those in need. Scouts will be making the blankets during the regular Monday meeting on December 15th. They are asking for parental donations of 3 foot by 5 foot fleece fabric which will be used to make the blankets. Please plan to participate and bring fleece if you can.
