Troop Service Project on Saturday, October 22

We will have a service project for Faith Presbyterian Church of spreading mulch in the beds at the back of the church on Saturday, October 22 from 9 AM to 11 AM. Scouts can earn service project hours. Please dress in work clothes (no uniforms) and bring wheelbarrows, buckets, shovels if you can. Bring a water bottle and you may want to wear gloves.


Greenery Fundraiser

Our greenery fundraiser is only online this year.  Send this link to your customers for them to order holiday greenery items that will be shipped directly to them via FedEx.

Orders can be placed starting now, but shipping begins November 14, and the last day for orders is December 9. Our troop will earn $8 per item sold. There will not be any Scout Bucks offered for this fundraiser this year. Attached is the greenery brochure that was handed out.


Pancake Breakfast on November 12 – Please sign up to work

We will be having a pancake breakfast fundraiser on Saturday morning, November 12. We need all parents, adults and Scouts to work that morning. All Scouts need to arrive at the church at 7:15 AM on November 12 and stay until clean-up is completed, hopefully by noon. For adults, there are two shifts: 1) 5:30 AM – 8 AM or 2) 8 AM – Noon. Feel free to sign up for both adult shifts if you like, we welcome the help. Tickets for the breakfast will cost $10 per adult and $5 per child (under age 12). Scouts will earn 60% of the profits in Scoutbucks for the tickets they sell and for the hours they work at the breakfast. If you are working at the breakfast and want to eat there, you need to purchase a ticket. Please sign up using this link:  Pancake Breakfast Sign-Up so we can make sure we have enough people to work.
