Troop 48 Update - 12/7/14

Posted on Sun, Dec 7, 2014

Troop Christmas Party Potluck and Awards Court of Honor – 6:00 pm

Our Troop’s Christmas party and potluck dinner will be this Tuesday December 9th at 6 pm in Faith Hall for our Scouts and families. Sign-up for food has been emailed to everyone. Each Scout will need to bring a wrapped gift for a gift exchange worth $5-$15. 


Christmas Baskets Service Project – Dec 14  & 16th

We are going to donate food baskets to 4 families this year.  Please let Mrs. Sheridan Baldwin ( know if you can help assemble and deliver baskets on December 16th  at 4:00 at the church. Scouts and adult drivers are needed. We also need a few Scouts to volunteer to help shop on Sunday, Dec 14th, meeting at the church at 2:00. Please sign up with Mrs. Baldwin if you can help.


If you forgot to bring a donated item last week for the Christmas baskets, please bring it to the Dec 9th potluck – see the list below. If your  last name starts with the letter next to the item, that is the item we need from you. For example, if your Scout’s last name begins with “D”, he would bring Cream of Mushroom Soup.
