Troop 48 Update - 11/20/15‏

Posted on Fri, Nov 20, 2015

December 1st – Christmas Potluck and Awards Court of Honor

All Scouts and their families are invited to join us at 6:00 pm on December 1st for our family potluck and Awards Court of Honor meeting. Please email Gina Eddleman to sign up for the potluck.  Please note the potluck will begin at 6 pm - one hour earlier than our regular meeting time. All Scouts should bring a wrapped gift for a gift exchange worth $5 - $10. The December $25 campout fee is also due on December 1st.


Christmas Basket Service Project

We need Scouts and adult drivers to volunteer for our Christmas Basket service project on December 15 at 4 pm (or later if you can’t get there by 4). We will be assembling and delivering four food baskets to needy families in Collierville. We also need Scouts to help with shopping for the baskets the week of December 7th. Please sign up with Mr. Gulati or Mrs. Ridenhour. There is no Troop meeting on December 15th, so we would like a good number of Scouts to sign up to help with this project.


Also on December 15th  at 4 pm, we will be helping with a Faith Presbyterian Church project by assembling weekend food bags for 45 children at Orange Mound Outreach Ministries, and the church will deliver these. We would like to ask our Troop families to bring donations for these weekend food bags to the Dec 1st or Dec 8th meetings. Attached is a list of suggested items, they need to be things that the children can make themselves (microwave items o.k.) or are ready-to-eat, and focus on protein and healthier items (no candy or chips).


Greenery and Popcorn Sale

Thanks to all those who helped make our greenery and popcorn sales a success!  Thanks especially to Ross Earl and Gina and Roger Eddleman for leading the sales, and to Kelley Lee, Eric Hube and Kim Ridenhour for helping to sort out greenery orders. We still have some greenery for sale, see Gina Eddleman if you are interested. If you have any money to turn in, please turn it in to Ross Earl for the popcorn sale and to Gina Eddleman for the greenery sale as soon as possible, but no later than December 1st.
