Our trip to Kroger was fun and informative - I was hungary by the time we left!

IMPORTANT REMINDER - PLC tonight at 7:30 - Carson Building.

Stew Money is comming in, but there is still over $2000 outstanding. Please bring your stew money to the next meeting.

Saturday is our Tent Set-up day. We need scouts to come help us go through our equipment. We will gather at 9:00 and work until about noon. There is an OA service Weekend this weekend.

The Hanover Board of Supervisors will be recognizing by Board Resolutions both Troop 521 and Troop 555 for their 75th and 25th

anniversaries of scouting at its Board Meeting on March 25th at 7pm. The Honorable Chuck McGee, supervisor for the Henry District, has arranged for these recognitions.

Please see the bottom of this message for additional information on Jamboree, Climbing Merit Badge and a Twilight Camp service opportunity.

Junior Leader Training - If you are interested, let Mr. Tehan know. This is supplemental training, but is a great program run by our district. On March 7, there is an all-day meeting to give you the information necessary to carry out the weekend trip and much more. The weekend trip will be on March 20-22. This is fun and will train you as a leader.

Elections are on for the end of March for our new SPL and PL's. Other positions will be appointed.

Summer Camp is closer than you think - Make sure your med form is up to date. There is a new Med form that will be required soon, so you might want to get it done. It is available at: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34605_Letter.pdf

On April 4th for boys not going on the AT there will be an overnight camping trip - intro to camping skills will be emphasized, but all who can come should - we'll need help teaching the skills.

Leaders - Please update your on-line training - it's important that we keep up to date. Check out http://olc.scouting.org/

Advice from the Scoutmaster - Anger is like a dangerous wolf - don't feed it or it grows stronger!
