Scoutmaster message of 6/24/14:

Our biggest fundraiser of the year – July 4th – Is a little over a week away. We will be at the Scout house this Saturday starting at 8:00AM to clean up the Scout house and grounds. Please come and bring your weed wackers, Mowers, and blowers.

We will also need EZ-Ups and Ice Chests for July 4th. Please bring these on Saturday so we know what we have.

Attached is a list of items that we are asking for money donations to offset the Troop buying these. Please give the money to Jim Grace.  We will still purchase the items to assure a consistency. This will allow more profit for the Troop.

Once the Scouts are complete with the cleanup we will have them get together and do the annual planning for campouts through 2015. This is something I moved from the fall due to us needing more time in getting reservations to certain campgrounds. Please ALL Scouts come and bring your ideas especially any new places you want to go! Pizza will be provided for Lunch.

On Saturday we will also be asking all Scouts who are going to Summer Camp for the first time or second to please bring their gear for a pack check. This will allow time to make sure they have what they need for camp.

We will have a meeting on Monday, June 30th. The knot of the week will be the Taut-Line.

We will meet on July 4th at 5:00PM to get set up and start selling. We should be done by 10:00PM.

There will be No Troop meeting on July 7th to give everyone a well deserved rest from this next week’s activities.

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
(Scout Law)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
(Scout Oath)

As an American, I will do my best to -
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
(Outdoor Code)

Be Prepared!
(Boy Scout Motto)

Do a Good Turn Daily!
(Boy Scout Slogan)

"May the great Scoutmaster of all Scouts be with you until we meet again."
(Scoutmaster's Benediction)
