*Tonight scouts will be working on advancement and first aid review.
**We need scouts to sign up for this Saturday's Camp Card sales for 10-12 and 12-2 at the White Jones Hardware Hwy 24.
***This Saturday is a BIG day. After camp card sales we will meet up in Stonehaven Subdivision at 2:00 to do our Scouting for Food Service project. We will split up and go door to door asking for nonperishable items for A.I.M. This will last until 4pm. Then we will go to Ms. Roxanna's and guide the younger boys in completing their make a fire requirements for Second Class. They will be using axe, hatchet, saw and knives to prepare wood for fire, then build and light the fire and let it burn a couple of minutes. Finally, they will put it out "cold". For several this is the last they need before the Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review. When that is completed, we will then travel back to the church for our lock-in and Scout Sunday service. When coming to Scout for Food, make sure you have your gear for the lock-in along with any snacks, breakfast, drinks, etc. Please be sure to have green pants to wear with uniform on Sunday and if you have your own scarf and slide, bring them. You should also wear your merit badge sash if you have one.
***Cave Trip is confirmed for March 4-5....let me know if you are still planning to go. I will have a sign up sheet for it Tuesday.
****The Calendar has been updated to include booths for selling Camp Cards and Beef sticks on Saturdays in February. It would be nice if 2 scouts could sign up for each time slot and let Charlean or Roxanna know. Also, if you would like to set up at another location not listed, let Charlean know so she can see if it is available.
*****Leader elections are planned for Tuesday, February 21. Be thinking of who you want to be SPL and what other positions you may want.
