    Summer Meetings – See below Car wash Information 

    June 1 – Pack / Troop Car wash. From Rob Kirk – (Some of this information is directed toward the Pack.)

    Hey all don’t forget next Saturday June 1st is our 1st fund raising car wash of the year.

    A few things about the car wash:

    *Be at Affton high school at 8:30 am if you are coming early to help set up otherwise show up when you can. If staying till the end plan on helping to clean up. This also a rain or shine event unless there is severe weather in the area.

    * if you have any hoses, buckets sponges or any car wash supplies please consider bringing them. We mainly need hoses and sprayers

    * scouts will earn camp funds for based on the hours they work during the time the car wash is open (9am to 3pm or when we have no traffic anymore). Please try to work in hour increments only as it’s easier for me to calculate.

    * please bring something to drink and eat/snack on.

    * the school will not be open for restrooms so we have parents typical go down to the 7-11 or another nearest house or establishment for rest room breaks.

    * Wear your swim suit. You will get wet! Between washing cars, scouts can rest or play in the water.

    *and most of all let’s have fun. The adults know it’s for a fund raiser so they dont expect their car to be perfect but as the cub scout motto goes, do your best.

    *and since I feel the scouts are a bit more mature than the cub scouts they can be dropped off. Scout parents may stay if they like.

    It has been brought to my attention that when registering/paying for summer camp, the software system will take a deposit and may not let you pay in full. I had an issue with this and had to log out and log back in.

    If it still won’t let you pay in full, contact Amanda Kissner, the Camping Program Assistant at Council. Her email is amanda.kissner@scouting.org.

    This is a learning curve for both myself and Chris. Thank you for your patience as we learn.

    Also, I changed the May camping trip. We are camping at Beaumont in Shippy field on May 17 – 19. This is also the Pack Family Camp and we will be camping next to them. The boys will be doing something with the kids in the Pack like taking them to Cub World (supervised).

    Questions – you can email me at laura.e.tague@sbcglobal.net or IM me using FB messenger.
