We will be having our Annual Troop planning meeting along with our Scout House cleanup to get the Scout House and surrounding area ready for our July 4th fundraiser THIS Saturday, June 27th starting at 8:00AM. Please plan to be there and start thinking of where you want to go on campouts / day trips for 2016. Lunch will be provided. We NEED everyone's Help to have the grounds and Scout House ready for July 4th.
Our largest Fundraiser of the year is coming up on July 4th. We ask that all families donate at least two cases (12pks) of soda pop and one case (24pk) of water. Please bring them to the Scout House by This Saturday.We decided to limit the soda types to enable easier selling and also allow the families to benefit from either repurchasing Coke or Pepsi products since most stores including Stater Bros. offers discounts when purchasing from the same “family” of drinks. I have attached an updated signup sheet that we have had out at the Scout House so please use this for a reference and let us know what you plan to purchase so we do not get too much of a certain type. I have “BOLDED” the soda pop flavors that we have enough of so please purchase any of the other ones. We are also asking if you want to donate monies towards the purchasing of the food items that will mean more money into the Troop account. If you decide to do this please see me at the Troop meeting to explain the details.
We also need EZ-Ups and ice chests for the fundraiser. Sign up at the Troop meeting. I have attached a copy of the sign up sheet.
There is Wood Badge Training for all adult leaders on August 28th – 30th.
We will be going to Lost Valley this year for Summer Camp. There is a Mandatory meeting at the Scout House THIS Monday, June 29th @ 6:15PM. If you are going to Summer Camp parents and Scouts need to attend!

Our Next Troop meeting will be our PLC / Committee meeting. We need ALL Scouts and Parent present to help take care of planning the next two months of meetings (Boys) and business of the Troop (parents). We will Not be having a meeting on Monday, July 6th to give everyone a must needed rest from the July 4th fundraiser. All Scouts are requested to bring their Scout books to the next meeting so after they are done planning the meetings we can work on rank advancements.
The Knot of the week for next Troop meeting is the Two Half Hitches.

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
