60th Annual Spaghetti Supper – February 13th

Unsold tickets and money for tickets sold is due February 10th to Eric Hube. If a Scout sells 8 tickets, then his meal is free. We need Scouts to be there at 4:00 pm on the 13th in uniform, and we need all parents to help out. Parents, please let Eric Hube know how you would like to help - cook, set-up, work the drive-thru, etc.  We also need each family to provide a dessert on the 13th. The time for the dinner is 5 pm – 7 pm, and we will have a drive-thru open from 4:30 – 5:30 pm.


Washington DC Summer Adventure – July 11 -18th

On July 11th, Troop 48 will depart for our Nation’s Capital.  In order to make plans, get security clearances and set budgets we need to know who will be going as soon as possible.  An initial deposit of $100 is due on or before February 24th. The total costs are still being determined, but will not be more than $300 per person. We still need more adults to go on the trip, so let Mr. Hormberg know if you are interested. In addition, we need personal information so the Secret Service can conduct background checks prior to our visit to The White House.  If you and/or your son is planning to go, please provide the following information in writing (not email) to Mr. Hormberg as soon as possible: First name, middle name, last name, date of Birth, Social Security #, Citizenship, Country of citizenship if other than U.S.A., City/State of residence.
