Please start bring your donations of soda pop and water. We are asking every Scouts to bring one 12 pack of soda pop and one 24 pack of water to the Scout house. Please try and drop these off by next Mondays meeting so we know what we have and what we need to purchase. Please only purchase named brand soda pop ( Coke- Pepsi products) since that is what sells best. If you want to donate more it would be appreciated. We are also asking each family to donate your favorite salsa whether its homemade or not . We will be having a taco bar and want to offer a variety of salsas!

Mrs. Navarro has taken over as our Script person. Script is a great way to help defray costs for Scouting activities (camps/campouts) and it costs you nothing to participate. It is very easy to do. We normally order Script around the first week of each month and have it to you by the next Troop meeting. Details on this easy fundraiser can be found at the Troop meeting. There is a packet available with information on how to participate. See Mr. McVeigh for any questions.
The Council is looking for individuals, families, and of course Scouts to assist in working on Camp Helendade this summer. This would be a Great Patrol project to assist the Council and gain service hours and give back! They would like to repair the camp from the fires a few years ago to try and open it back up. Opportunities to camp free are available if you help. Details can be found at the Troop meeting.
