Christmas Tree Celebration

Posted on Jan 9 2022 - 8:43pm

It’s a celebration! And I’m not talking about Toyotathon. On Tuesday we are going to have a celebration for a very very successful Christmas Tree Drive. Please arrive to Tuesday’s meeting at 6:30 to celebrate. There will be food and treats. After, we will have our normal troop meeting and parent meeting. Thank you to all who participated. And a very very special thanks to Angela Davis who works so hard with organizing, coordinating, and working the whole project. 

Announcements for week of 1/2

Posted on Jan 2 2022 - 3:45pm

What a fantastic turnout this weekend for the Christmas trees. This is a very important fundraiser for the troop. Thank you to all who participated. Please remember to check the weather as the week goes on. Hopefully the weather will stay nice. Think about the day, was there anything you would do different? 

For our meeting on 1/4, please bring lots of winter clothes for our game. Please put your name on them (even if it is just pinned). Also for that same first meeting, if there is anything used for tree recycling that you want sharpened, we will be working on blade safety and sharpening. 

American River District’s Klondike Camping on on January 28th - 30th. If you are interested in going, please let me know. We need to sign up as a troop. It costs, right now, $20 per person. The last day to register on Jan 21st. We will do a gear check at the January 18th meeting. Right now, I know of one scout who wants to go.
