Second Sunday Supper

posted Jun 18, 2016, 3:49 PM by Maxwell Vogel

Troop 113,

I have talked to a number of you about not showing up when you have signed up to help at Second Sunday Supper.  The problem is not getting better.  We had only 2 scouts show up yesterday to serve 72 people.  This is the 3rd month in a row that we have had scouts not show up to fulfill their commitment and that’s very disappointing.  This isn’t fair to the scouts that do show-up or to Bethlehem Lutheran and their volunteers that depend on our help to make these dinners a success.

As I’ve stated many times before, I expect every scout to sign up and serve at two Second Sunday Suppers each year.  We need a minimum of 4 scouts at each supper.  The volunteers at Bethlehem Lutheran that host these suppers depend on our help.  This is our way of thanking Bethlehem Lutheran for being one of our charter organizations and it is a great opportunity for us to serve our community.


When you sign up, write it on your calendar so you don’t forget.  It is your responsibility to remember to be there.  Dennis even sends out a reminder email every month on the Friday prior to Second Sunday Supper to help remind you.  If you find that you cannot fulfill your commitment, it is up to you to find a replacement.  If you cannot find a replacement,you must be there.   There are no excuses for not fulfilling your commitment.


Please let me know if you have any questions.  I thank you in advance for your attention to this issue to make sure we have no further problems.


Thank you,
