Crossover and OA

posted Feb 22, 2015, 11:45 AM by Cory Spawn

Hey everybody,

This is Alex N., the current SPL of Troop 113.  This e-mail is just a reminder of the events occurring over the next few days.  Tomorrow, we will be having a crossover ceremony for the Webelos that will soon be joining our troop, so if you can make it, please attend at the church at 7:00 pm.  Also, for the meeting on Tuesday, we will be having our Order of the Arrow elections, so I would recommend that non-member scouts show up in Class A uniforms, and current members of the OA have to wear their uniforms and OA sashes.  Thanks!

One of Troop 113's most important weekends of the year is coming up this March 27-29.  The planning conference is where you, the Scouts of Troop 113 present your ideas and plan for the next year's worth of activities.  Attendance is mandatory for all scouts. It is imperative for every scout to have input on the troop calendar for the next year! You must talk to Sean if you are even considering not attending. There will be a super-secret, amazingly fun activity following the planning session on Saturday.  Location is top secret (but parents may contact Sean at 651-755-3906 if they need to know).

The permission slip for this event is attached.  It is due by March 3.

Yours in Scouting,

Scout Sunday tomorrow

Troop 113,
This is a reminder that tomorrow is Scout Sunday at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Bayport.  I would like to see all scouts there at 8:30 AM.  Please wear your Class A uniform with either scout pants or jeans (no sweatpants).  Remember, Bethlehem Lutheran is one of our charter organizations and we want to be there to represent them and our troop as favorably as possible.  Let's let the community see first hand how great our scouts are!
Thank you,
Sean Flaherty

We will also be washing and drying any dirty clothes. This process should take about 3 hours. I would like to start at noon Sunday afternoon. Lunch will be provided.
