    SHOW & SELL POPCORN 

    Troop,

    Rachel Watson sent out the following e-mail about signing  up to work for Show & Sell in front of the store.  I believe most everyone at the parents meeting at the Edgar’s was interested in doing this to help get more money into your Scout’s account.  However, as  you can see below – not many of you have replied to Rachel about helping to sell.

    Please e-mail Rachel with your preferred time @ mrs1313@gmail.com

    **ONONDAGA CAMPING UPDATE** 

    ***CAMPING REMINDER/UPDATE***

    To those going camping this weekend.  Reminder to have your $12 food money plus $5 cave tour money tomorrow at the meeting.   Patrols will be going shopping tomorrow during the meeting time so if you do not have your money, you will not be able to go.

    ***Need Ride Help – We currently have 12 Scouts going and only enough space for 8.  We are going to need someone to either drive down and back, or if you would like to camp with us – that is fine also, we just need to know if you are camping…….Reminder it is basically up to you to get your scout to camp – that means either they have signed up to ride with one of the leaders going, or once those vehicles are full, it is up to the remaining parents to work out a plan for transportation.

    GAS MONEY DUE FRIDAY AT THE ADMIN BUILDING WILL BE $15 PER SCOUT

    Thanks,

    Mr. Piel

      Troop 821 does a GREAT SERVICE for all the people marching in the parade. It is a long morning for the people marching and many did not eat or drink anything before coming to the lineup. With the troop selling food and drinks, their worries are over. Good luck and thank you for the great job you do. People have been asking if you are going to be up at the AHS this year, and I said YES!
