Congratulations Eric D – Our newest Eagle Scout! Eric had his District Board of Review Tuesday night!

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! Our Lady of Lourdes.

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. Time is 5:00 each night. Please plan to attend.

Scoutbash is June 5th. We need to know ASAP (today if possible) if you want tickets. If Ben does not have your name on the list by the end of the weekend, your cost to attend will likely double, so this is a great deal and will be a great time.

Ticket Options:

$35 per person for the full day

$10 if you have a KD season pass

Please let Ben Ward know by emailing him directly at troop555eaglescout@yahoo.com

Given the time between now and then, is is unlikely that we will be camping.

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!

The Order of the Arrow service weekend/ordeal will take place on May 21-22-23.

Final Payments are due for Summer Camp at the beginning of June.

We still need commitments for Seabase. See a leader!

Advice from the Scoutmaster: One person with a great idea can make a huge difference. Thomas Seaton was just such a person!
