Adult volunteer needed for Planning Conference

posted Mar 26, 2015, 9:42 AM 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,
