    8/27 Update 

    THIS THURSDAY 8/28

    Troop,

    This Thursday we will meet at Mesnier at 7pm.  We are still working on getting our First Year Scouts up to their proper ranks.  PLEASE BE THERE AND BRING YOUR BOOKS. 

    Mr Rhodes will be helping direct the older boys in working with our First Year Scouts on Knots, Lashings & some Animal identification.   The PLC will be offsite at its annual calendar planning meeting so I need all other Older Scouts on hand to help out.

    We will also be trying to do Scoutmaster conferences and Boards of Review, so any extra leaders & parents that can be there to help out would be much appreciated.

    We will be finishing up around 8ish so Parents, please be back at Mesnier by 8 to pick up your Scout.

    PLC please see separate e-mail about location of planning meeting.

      at Space Jam/Space Explorers- If by chance your boy picked up a Webelos shirt that has a circle badge hanging on pocket, unfortunately I didn’t put Brandon’s name on the collar. (Or any badges you don’t recognize, I don’t recall exactly which ones) A Webelos shirt without numbers was found that may have been someones…maybe picked up the wrong shirt.

      I spoke to- Denny Anderson, Troop 17

    SCOUT NIGHT AT THE RAMS GAME 

    Troop,

    The Rams are having a special Scout Night promotion at an upcoming game.  Julie Bach is looking to see if there is interest in attending the Rams game as a group.   Please read her note below and respond to Julie directly if you are interested in going.

    See attached flyer:   RAMS

     

    The heading would be “Rams Football – Scout Honor Day”

     The 2014 Scout Honor Day at the Rams football game will be November 30 this year.  Please see the attached flyer, and if you have an interest in going, please let me know.  You may email me at julzb@sbcglobal.net.  I was going to order the Terrace Level Package.  This is $45 per ticket and includes a $10 food & beverage voucher and a Boy Scout/Rams patch with button loop.  Also, if we order early enough, we may be able to help hold the American Flag on the field during the National Anthem.  Please let me know by August 27 if you are interested.  I will go from there on when the money would be due. 

    Thank you.

    Julie

    I WAS GOING TO….. 

    I was going to… send a post stating that are only 133 days left until Christmas.  You should use this time wisely and pre-plan by ordering Scrip cards now.

    I was going to…send a post telling you that I’ve forgotten to send this month’s post in regards to Scrips, and to please forgive me  for the late notice.  BTW orders are due this Thursday 8/14.

    I was going to… send a post mourning the loss of Summer so early.  Some of you might be happy, but most are crying right now.  Yes, tomorrow is FDOS. First day of school for those that don’t speak my language. I know you could kick yourself for not having Scrip cards to buy those back to school supplies.

    But instead…I will not send a post reminding you to buy Scrip cards because there are only 9 more Scrip orders until Summer camp 2015 need to be paid for.  Instead today, August 13th, is National Left Handed Awareness Day.  Get your loved one a gift.  Use a Scrip card to buy it.

    find order form here————>>>August Scrips
