Thanks to Mr. Carr for showing us his 100th anniversary coin.

Take a look at the requirements for earning the 100th anniversary patch and ribbons – we should all do this!

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.

The committee will meet next week for scouts going up for advancement.

The Scout Bash is coming June 5th. We will not be camping. The deadline for getting tickets through the troop has passed, but tickets are still available online and at the scout store. More information attached below this message. We will travel from the church about 7:30 am on the 5th. Permission slips will be available at the gathering.

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!

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

We still need commitments for Seabase. See a leader!
