    Scout Info 

    Troop,

    No meeting this Thursday, because of Thanksgiving.

    Reminder Recharter fees of $75.00, are due Dec. 4th.

    On this off week I thought I would pass along Summer Camp information that I have:

    We will be at S-F Scout Ranch (Camp Famous Eagle) the week of June 28- July 4.

    The cost is: $240.00 (if paid in full between Jan 2 and March 2 2015)

                         $260.00 (if paid in full between March 3 and June 1 2015)

                         $275.00 (if paid in full between June 2 and start of camp)

    Merit badges for summer camp may be signed up for only after a Scout is paid in full (starting Jan. 2) We do not have a list of merit badge offerings yet.

    I hope to have more information after the December round table, which I will pass along as soon as I get it.

    Reminder & O A Info 

    Troop

    Reminder we are not doing Patrol Games today, since the field is wet and more rain is expected.

    Below is information for O A members

    Winter Fellowship Banquet

    The Shawnee Lodge Winter Fellowship Banquet is the annual meeting and celebration for the lodge and all of its members for the year’s events. This is one of just five lodge-wide events that are held throughout the year, and this event is in the form a banquet and meeting. This year, however, things are likely to be a little bit different. With the centennial year of the Order of the Arrow fast approaching, the lodge leadership has “shaken the mold” to produce a spectacular evening of good new foodentertainment from a selection of special guests, and plenty of camaraderie to go around. With many centennial themed elements structuring the banquet, this years banquet is going to be great! At this banquet we will truly be Celebrating The Legacy.

    • Winter Fellowship Banquet are now open and available
      • Tickets can be purchased at shawneelodge.org/WFB
    • Shawnee Lodge #51 is releasing an Official Fleece Jacket
      • Jacket’s must be purchased by December 1st

    Available to order at shawneelodge.org/Jacket

    Thanks,

    Mr. Wagoner

    December Scrips 

    find order form here ———->>>>>>>>>November Scrips 2

    I know there are a lot of inaccuracies in this post.  I know it’s only November, but this post really is about December’s order.  I also am aware that the order link says November Scrips 2.  The same order form will still be used for December.

    The December order will be pushed forward by one week.  A few families have asked that it be an earlier order for Christmas delivery.  So here are the dates:

    Order turn in 12/4

    Order delivery 12/11

    If you have any question please don’t hesitate to ask. speedracer5548@yahoo.com or 314-638-9767

    *****If you notice any retailers missing from the list, that were listed in the past please let me know. Great Lakes Scrips has recently revamped their website and ordering.  I’ve noticed some retailers dropping off my list.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer E.

      Hi Jennifer,

      I just looked online at scrips.com- if we order 11/29- 12/5, Panera is giving 11% instead of the normal 9%. Do you know if I am able to order online and get that money in Jack’s account? I am thinking I will give gift cards to all of the teachers this year and I could get a bit of a benefit from it too.

      Thanks for all you do

      Michelle

    Re-chartering Dues December 4th and new fundraising structure starting January 1st 

    Scout re-charting dues of $75.00 are due December 4, 2014!

    These dues will cover Boy Scout re-charter fees.

    We have chosen to move away from the 50/50 model of fundraising next year. Starting January 1, 2015 – 100% of your scout’s fundraising will go to their scout account. Yes, every dime you fundraise will go toward your scouting experience. You may use these funds to pay for any scout related activity including dues, camps, food and/or gas for camps, etc. This account is not for personal camping/scouting gear.

    Note: If you are using your scout account to pay for any of these, please tell Mrs. Neaf 2 weeks before the camp. This will allow her to get the funds from the bank to pay for food and gas prior to camp.

    We will be asking for a second round of dues of $75.00 on May 1, 2015. Again, this can be paid for with scout fundraising accounts. These dues will cover the Troop expenses such as merit badges, rank advancement badges, camping supplies (tents, propane, lanterns) trailer updates/repairs, etc.

    Note about scout account: If a scout is to leave scouting the Fundraising/Scout account will remaining with the troop. The only exception would be if your scout goes to the venturing crew or another troop. We will consider writing a check in the amount of your scouts account only to the new crew/troop.

    Extra Notes:
    Good news for multi scout households – you will get a $10 discount for each scout after the first one. Example: First scout = $75.00 – Second scout = $65.00 – Third scout = $65.00.

    If you are not going to re-charter, please tell one of the leaders so we can take your scout off the books.

    As always, please ask if you have any questions.

    Sincerely,

    Brian Krakos
