First and Foremost please join us in congradulating Troop 555's newest Eagle Scout Ben Blados.

Stew is coming this weekend February 25-26 : We will need help in several areas including moving pots on the Wednesday before and at the end of Stew:

We'll need help with:

· Set up pots - Wednesday evening 2/23; 7pm Need 6 guys:

· Meet at Shady Grove Church at the pot pavilion (in the back)

· Chicken Picking Friday at 6:00pm All hands needed!

· Adults, Scouts and Friends to stay overnight. We really need at least three shifts (5-6 scouts) to do this. We're more than happy to have (and encourage) adults to volunteer to stir with the boys. Please let us know if you can stay, and if you will stir!

· Packing the Stew - Saturday morning - We start packing around 6-6:30 and we're usually done by 8:00.

· Take the pots down - Saturday morning (2/26) and return them to their homes, be at the FOP by 6:30am. The last pot will go to the Hanover Courthouse and the job will be done by 9:30am or so...
