NOVEMBER CAMPOUT – NO CAMPOUT THIS WEEKEND
TROOP DUES – Our Charter and all Troop Dues for the year 2020 are due in December. Troop 313 dues will be $120 for active scouts. Eagle Scouts wishing to continue to participate (under 18) and registered adults will be $40. Results from the popcorn sale and other fundraisers have been calculated. Each family will get an email from me soon with the balance for your son(s).
SCOUTING FOR FOOD – THIS SATURDAY! – Saturday November 9 is the FOOD PICK UP. This usually goes pretty quickly. Plan to meet at the church parking lot a 9 am. We do need some parents to drive the kids around the neighborhood we have been assigned.
NOVEMBER PROGRAM – We will be doing elements of the public speaking merit badge during the meetings this month. If your son wants to actually complete the badge, have them talk to me (Christell) as there is a larger component we cannot complete during group meeting time.
STEM – The second STEM Saturday is November 16 AT EWU.
WEBELOS SKILLS DAY – This is a mandatory event that we put on each year to introduce local cub scout packs to us, and to basic scout skills. This year it will be December 7 from 9-12PM at the Hamblen Park Shelter. More details to come.
GIRLS TROOP – There has been some interest in starting a girl’s troop here at 313. Some adults here have been working behind the scenes to find out what needs to be done to get one up and running. Right now, we are trying to assess the interest, and find out if we have enough girls to feasibly get things going. Message me or come talk to me at a meeting if you have a daughter who might be interested, or if you know of a friend or family member who might be. An informational meeting is being planned and we want to get the word out. It also goes without saying that this endeavor will also need some additional adult volunteers.
