Adult volunteer needed for Planning Conference

posted by Cory Spawn

Troop 113 Parents,

Due to a death in the family, Mark Schoolman will not be attending this weekend’s Planning Conference.  I ask that you remember the Schoolman family in your thoughts and prayers this week.  Unfortunately, Mark’s absence also leaves us short-handed for adults that can drive and take part in planning and activities this weekend.  If anyone is available to assist the troop by driving and attending this weekend we would greatly appreciate it.  We plan to meet at the scout building at 5:30 PM on Friday and return around 12:30 – 1:00 PM on Sunday.  We will be sleeping indoors and all meals will be furnished by the troop.  Please contact me as soon as you can if you can help.  You can either reply to this email or contact me at (651) 755-3906.

Thank you,

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!
