What a great turnout for our first meeting of the New Year!

We've only gotten a few commitments in so far for our Whitewater trip this summer. If you need a commitment form, let us know! We need to start planning this and we need to know who's going - cause they will do most of the planning!

Next Tuesday , January 13 we will have a guest speaker on Internet Safety. Families are encouraged to attend too! You may be surprised by what you learn!

Joshua T's Eagle Court of Honor is Saturday 1/17 at 2:00. Scouts should be there at 1:30.

The Klondike Derby is January 31. This should be a fun day - Please plan to attend (and let the leaders know!) We need firm commitments next Tuesday if possible. If we get two sleds of scouts, there is pizza for the winning sled team!

February 8th is the District Bowl-a-Thon. 4-6 PM. Sign-ups are available at the meeting.

Let's get everyone to First Class Advancement day February 21st. Let the leaders know what you need for advancement, and we're going to schedule activities that day to get as much done as we can! The time is tentatively scheduled for 10-3 PM.

The Spring Stew is February 28th/29th. Plan to attend and be selling!
