No Scout Meeting on Tuesday, June 12th due to exam week. There will be an adult leaders meeting.

Please join us Saturday, June 16th from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM for Drew Houck’s Eagle Project. This is a beautification project that will involve cleaning of brush and debris. It will also require moving bricks and a small area of rocks. There is a need for chainsawing some fallen limbs. Pizza, drinks and snacks will be served. If any leaders have trucks and chainsaws we can use them for cutting and carrying brush to the dump. Also, all scouts can bring yard tools such as limb cutters.
