Good morning ALL,

This week we have a  Very Important Troop Meeting.  Scouts will vote for the Patrick Straw Award.  We need as many of our Scouts to come out for this.

The Troop Meeting will start at 7:30 PM.  Wear your Class A Uniform and bring your Scout Handbook.

Remember we are keeping track of Gold Nuggets for each Patrol.

Things to sign up for on the Troop Web Site:

11/8 & 11/9  Pancake Breakfasts

Every Scout needs to help with the Pancake Breakfasts and we can use help from their parents too.  It seems that it is the same families that help out at each breakfast and we need to see some new scouts and parents involved.  We are tracking participation levels this year.

11/09 Daniel Hinerdeer's Eagle Court of Honor.

Come to celebrate Daniel's accomplishments. I need some help with parts in the program.

11/8 & 11/15 Scouting For Food

We have a big area to cover and the food that is brought in is needed to replenish the Food Bank in our community.

11/21-23 Gettysburg Campout.

It looks like it is going to be a GREAT event.  You
don't want to miss out on this one.

12/13  Sky Zone Outing

Another Great event, you won't want to miss.

1/16 - 1/17 Klondike Derby/Iron Will Trek.

Older Scouts should be signing up for the Iron Will trek in teams of 2 Scouts.  Others are needed for the Klondike
Derby Patrols.

There is 1 slot remaining for this High Adventure trip



Scouts that have not paid their dues yet -This is the last week to pay.  If not paid, you will not be re-chartered for this coming year.
