Weather is Turning, and Scouting is Going Full Swing!

The troop continues to do great work - just last night we helped pack 86 boxes of food (enough for 18,516 meals for kids in Jamaica) at Feed My Starving Children last night.  Way to go troop!  (see pictue below).

We are finishing up our tent campouts for the year, with the last campout out Rum River Scout Camp the 13th - 15th of November.   Scouts are getting more and more signed off in the scout books every campout.    Scouts - make sure to bring your scout handbooks on every campout (and you should also bring them to the troop meetings).     Also, make sure to log your campouts and service hours in the back of the scout handbook.    This is where we go to look when you are advancing ranks.

Wreath and Popcorn pickups are happening.  Remember, when you are delivering your wreath and popcorn, be polite, be in uniform, and thank your customers for their support of scouting!

Last, please plan and sign up early for the December (Kiawanis - ski campout) and January (Base Camp Lockin) Campouts.   We have to know numbers early and we will be closing sign up on these campouts early.  Both of these are popular campouts (Kiawanis is cabin camping, Base Camp is fully heated basecamp facility by Fort Snelling) and we have costs and logistics we need to set up early to make them happen.   Any questions, please contact Mr. Klema - our new camping coordinator!   (Mr. Braun is continuing on as our Many Point camping coordinator - the troop has gotten large enough that we needed to distribute the workload.)     Thank you to both of these parent volunteers for countless hours already invested and investing in the future to help make this troop one of the greatest in the Twin Cities!

Til next month - Happy Scouting!
