Scoutmaster message of 9/10/14:

We will be having a Dutch Oven cooking contest at our next Troop  meeting, September 15. Scouts please remember to bring items that you need for your recipe. Please plan to be at the Scout House by 6:30PM to give time to put the recipe together and get it starting to cook before our meeting starts at 7PM. I will be there early with the Dutch ovens and have the coals ready.

Popcorn sales at Stater Brothers has been going on.  Thank you to all those who came out and supported this effort. We  have had some great sales so far. We still have one upcoming weekend in October that still need some Scouts and parents to volunteer to sell. Please contact Mrs. Navarro for details.

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)
