For the Service Project this Sunday, please wear Class A's. If you are moving chairs, you might want to bring a Class B as well.

A great trip to Eagle Point, and a great meeting.

This Saturday August 31st - Service Project at New Hanover. There will be only 1 church service that day and they need a crew to direct traffic in the morning from about 9:45 - 10:30 AM and a second crew to put up chairs starting at about 2:30 PM until they are finished. Any time spent on this will count as service time and is a great way to give back to the church that sponsors us.

As the new School year starts, there is no meeting next Tuesday night. We have a very full schedule of events over the next several weeks, please read carefully and attend as many as you can. Our next event is Stephen Kelley's Eagle project on September 6th.

Our Fall Court of Honor is Tuesday September 9th at 6:30 PM. We will meet for dinner and our Court of Honor. Families and Fiends are encouraged to attend. Bring enough to serve double your family. The troop is providing the main course and drinks.
