Sunday, February 8th is Scout Sunday at Living Faith United Methodist Church. This is a chance to celebrate the relationship between the church and the Troop. In addition to having Scouts participate in worship, this is also the day of the Troop 405 Chili Feed Fundraiser, a great way for our troop to raise money. We are asking help from both the boys and their families. Here is all the information you need to know.
The Boys – Chili
The patrols are each asked to prepare and bring a large electric roasting pan with about 5 gallons of chili. The boys should be finding the recipe, setting up a time to cook and doing the actual cooking. Parent assistance and / or supervision is highly recommended. Between now and Monday’s meeting, we need the boys to do the following:
- If they have a recipe for awesome chili, bring a copy, so they can decide what recipe to use.
- Ask parents if their kitchen would be available for cooking sometime the weekend of 2/5 – 2/7. Each patrol needs a place to make the magic happen!
At Monday’s meeting, the boys will pick a recipe, a cooking location and time, and decide who will buy ingredients. They will then be responsible for cooking the chili and bringing it to the church on Sunday morning. Please help your boys get ready for this event. If you have a great recipe, let your Scout know. Even better if you are famous for your chili, offer to help them cook!
The Adults – Desserts
So enough about the boys, lets talk about what is important – your chance to join the ranks of Mr. Gissler and Mrs. Earhart as dessert champions! We are asking each family to bring a dessert item to share. Whatever your specialty, we would love to have it. We have had cheesecake, regular cakes, pies, a mint brownie I am really hoping makes a return appearance, and more. There is a dessert competition and the chili-feed guests will crown a winner. Please help us out by bringing a dessert to share!
Everybody – Advertising
The key to making this a success is getting people there! The more people we bring in, the better! Please let all of your friends know about it. I have attached a picture with all of the details for you to put on your Facebook pages, etc. I stressed to the boys, this is not a fundraiser if your parents are the only ones present. Please help get the word out. Also, the boys should have brought home tickets from the last meeting, and they can get more. They should write their names on the back of these and hand them out to friends, teachers, etc. If the person comes in and drops the ticket into a jar, your scout is entered into a contest to win a few different prizes!
