A Great week at Camp Old Indian...I hope you all enjoyed it!!
We will NOT meet this Tuesday due to SM Glenn being on 3rd shift and I will be recuperating from some dental work. Please be in attendance on Tuesday, August 2!!
We will be discussing another car wash (need money for merit badges earned at camp) as well as a possible outing to Green River Tubing, Saluda, NC for August 13.
I know popcorn is a sore subject, but if you got an order form, go ahead and try to get some orders. We can possibly get it in September, but it will definitely come by early November.
Roxanna said she would set up some show and sell locations and be there for boys to sell, but we would like to have some commitment....Popcorn has the highest return value for earning money for the unit.
Later in August we will be doing leader elections and our annual planning, so be thinking about the kind of outings you want to do.
Have a well-deserved break and come back fresh August 2!!
