Good Morning All! 

I would like t thank Committee Chairman Mr. Fitz for keeping our Troop updated on Peter Harris' status.  If you have not heard, Peter was in a bad bicycling accident on the 11th.  Many people have been keeping him, his family and others that were involved in their prayers.

Troop Meeting this Thursday 4-24-14, starting at 7:30 PM, wear your Class A uniform and bring your Scout handbook.

This week we have OA Elections.  The following Scouts are running:  Tristan Barge, Liam Blevins, Tad Butler, Ryan Fegley, Tim Fitz, Owen Haines, Daniel Hinerdeer, Josiah Hinerdeer, Philip Hinerdeer and Daniel McTamney-Prexta.  All have fulfilled the requirements and would make good members of the OA.  We need to have as many Scouts come to this meeting to be able to have the election.  So make sure you come out to vote for these Scouts.

We will be working on things for the Canoe Rally that is soon coming up.

Scouts that need to have the Swim Test for Summer Camp might be doing that this Thursday too.  We will let those know who need to take the test at the Lititz Rec Center (we are trying to re-schedule it for a Thursday in May, but if we can't, you will need to do it this week).  Parents will have to stay with the Scout and as soon as they are done, they can bring them to the Troop Meeting.

Troop Clothing Orders will be given out this week.

Other things happening:

Eagle Court of Honor for Brandon Martin on Sunday 4-27-14 at 2 PM in St. James Hall.  I still need some Scouts to help with the ceremony.  Let me know if you are able to help out.

High Adventure Overnight trip is this coming weekend.

Canoe rally nest weekend.

Railroading Merit Badge at Strasburg Railroad - We still have 1 slot open, let me know if you want to attend.  If you are going, print out the permission slip and bring you payment to this week's Troop Meeting.

Keep selling Sub Coupons.  A Scout is Thrifty, he pays his own way.

Meteor Shower Campout is not full yet.  You don't want to miss out on this one.

Have a GREAT WEEK!!!  I will see you Thursday.

Yours in Scouting,

Mr. Maney
