There will be a PLC Thursday 5/13. (Tonight)

On May 15th, join Mr. Kelley on a 7-mile day hike in the Charlottesville area at the Ragged Mountain Natural Area. You may see a yellow-bellied sapsucker, woodpecker, bats, snapping turtle, otter, deer or the rare bobcat or black bear that is known to visit the area. Permission slip is attached. Depart from the Carson building at 8:00 and return approximately 5:00.

Next Tuesday night we will have a scout bridging from Pack 555. We need a few scouts and leaders to come early (7:00) and welcome him into out troop! The ceremony is most likely going to be in the Hanover Hall at the church.

Kevin T’s Eagle Court of Honor is Thursday May 20th, please come! Practice will start at 6:30 and the ceremony is at 7:30.

On Saturday May 22nd W. McCombs is doing his Eagle Project from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. He wants all who can to come and help!

Memorial Day Weekend we will be participating in our annual service project of placing flags out on the graves at the Cold Harbor cemetery. This takes about 1 hour Friday evening, and about 1 hour Monday evening to bring the flags in. Please plan to attend.

Our next big trip is approaching at the end of June – Gettysburg! (6/25-27) We will depart early that Friday and start earning the five-part patch! Our group size is limited to 20, so sign up soon!

We still need commitments for Summer Camp and Seabase. See a leader!

Advice from the Scoutmaster: Know your first aid! Mosquito and tick season has come!
