Scoutmaster message of February 20, 2017

Our next Adams Street / Scout House Cleanup will take place THIS Saturday, February 25th   The Adams Street Cleanup which will start at 8:00AM.  Meet at the industrial park at the corner of Adams and Lincoln Ave at 8:00AM. Once we have completed the street cleanup we will head over to the Scout House and start that cleanup around 9:30AM.  We need EVERYONE to show up and lend a hand! We will take whatever time you can give. We especially need you to bring Lawnmowers and Weed Trimmers to help with knocking the weeds down.

Please sign up for the upcoming campouts. We need to have you signed up and paid at least Two Weeks before the campout in order to properly have time to put them together.

March 17th – 19th – TBD
April 28th – 30th – District Camporee – Lake Perris
May 19th – 21st – Fiesta Island – San Diego

Our Next PLC meeting will be held on Monday, March 13th starting at 6:30PM. All Leadership needs to attend!

Due to the lack of deposits made towards the Cherry Valley Summer Camp and the potential of not getting a spot until August which will not work for most Scouts since they will be back in school we have decided to postpone the Cherry Valley Summer Camp until Summer of 2018. You can still make payments to Mr. Grace and sign up so when the time comes towards the end of this year we can send our request in. For this Summer we will be going to Camp Tahquitz located in the Big Bear / Barton Flats Mountain area. This was the Scouts second choice and is a Great camp and local which is nice. We will have a signup sheet so Please sign up and make your deposits so we can get a count to reserve our spot. 

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

Be conservation minded.
