November 4

Post date: Nov 7, 2008 12:57:46 AM

There was no meeting Tuesday night, but there is a lot going on - please read carefully.

This Saturday is Bag's In. We will meet at Northside Baptist Church (7600 Studley Road) at 9:30 and will be collecting bags at local neighborhood houses for the Scouting for Food program. This is the biggest scout wide service project of the year and provides the food bank with much of its annual food needs. Please participate! Parents, if you can help, please do - many hands make light work!

Chippokes Recruitment Trip This Weekend


Just a few important points for the Chippokes camping trip.


Scouts attending both "Bags-In" Saturday morning and the "Chippokes Trip" need to bring their packs to the Northside Baptist Church at 9:30 am.


All scouts will meet back at the Carson Building at 12:30 pm to prepare to depart for Chippokes. The Webelos will also arrive at that time.


Please bring a bag lunch to eat before we leave from the Carson Building for Chippokes.


The permission slip for this trip is attached.


Remember, recruitment activities help the troop remain strong for years to come.

The meeting November 11th will take place at the Henry Volunteer Fire Station #6 9634 Chamberlayne Avenue, Mechanicsville, VA 23116. (This is the one just south of the church.) The Carson Building is in use.

There is a PLC November 13th.

For our Whitewater trip next summer, we expect the event to cost about $600 per scout. We want commitments soon, and will set up a payment schedule of $100/month for the first six months of 2009. These payments can either be made directly or by participation/planning fund raising events. We are open to good ideas to help raise funds to offset the cost of the trip.
