This Saturday, August 8th at 12:00 P.M. at Church is Rummage Sale Clean Up! A group of Scouts is needed for an hour or so to help pack up, vacuum and reset the fellowship hall, lobby & worship center. This is an easy service hour and you will be helping our chartered organization! Please e-mail Mr. Dietsch at email@example.com if you plan to attend, so we can be sure we have people going.
Eagle Court of Honor
This Sunday, August 9th at 1:45 P.M. at the Church is Simon Gissler’s Eagle Court of Honor – Please plan to attend!! Jedi Council should be there early. Everyone is invited to celebrate this great milestone with Simon. Refreshments will be served afterward.
This Monday, August 10th, at 6:30 P.M. there will be a PLC meeting before the regular scheduled meeting. SPL, ASPL, Patrol Leaders, Assistant Patrol Leaders and Scribe should plan to attend all PLCs! Also, voting on next year’s “away” camp was postponed to this coming Monday. Braeden and Jackson will present our options, and Scouts will vote for where we will be going. Please plan on attending the meeting!
Scouting for Scouts
We need to have our Scouts out there helping out with the first Pack meetings for some of the schools that are or could be feeders for our Troop. Everyone consider offering an hour or two on either Thursday, August 20th or Tuesday, August 25th, both from 6:30 P.M. – 7:30 P.M. for recruiting Cub Scouts to the Troop. You will be helping the Cub Scouts out with a water rocket activity, so it should actually be kind of fun, too. It also counts as service hours.
Please sign up online. Simply go to the school at which you would like to help out and click on the “Sign Up” button, then the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page. Please also e-mail Mr. Dietsch at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know when and where you are planning to volunteer. The schools you should target are as follows (though you may volunteer anywhere you would like): Gretna, Ackerman, Rohwer, Whitetail, Wheeler, Black Elk, Reagan, Spring Ridge and West Bay.
Training for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters and anyone else wanting to gain the knowledge of Troop positions will be held on Saturday, August 22 from 8:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. at the Durham Scout Center. Please consider attending this training, as we need all of you to help keep the Troop strong. You can attend the training and then join us in the afternoon for the family campout! Sign up online
The Scouts will be holding their regular monthly campout at Camp Cedars August 21st – 23rd. This one is special, however, as all parents, siblings, grandparents, etc. are invited to join the Troop. Everyone is welcome to come out for the entire weekend, just the day on Saturday, just the Court of Honor Saturday evening, or whatever. The Saturday night Court of Honor will celebrate the achievements of the Scouts over the summer, including Merit Badges, rank advancements, and other awards. We may also have a slideshow of summer camp activities. If you are attending dinner on Saturday night, we would ask you to bring a side or dessert to share. The Troop will provide the main dish. Please plan to sign up in person at one of the next two meetings.
