THIS SATURDAY Feb. 23rd is the SCOUT O RAMA @ the Cardinal's Stadium. This is a closer location then Tempe and it is expected to the best one yet! Our Troop has an obstacle course booth which we will need to set-up, man and take down. This will be fun! We need you to sign up to work @ our booth. Sign up sheet will be available at Monday nights meeting. PLEASE COME PREPARED TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR SHIFT. Shifts are: 8:30-10:30 am, 10:30am- 1pm, 1-3:30pm, or 3:30-5:30pm.
On SUNDAY Feb. 24th, Matthew Slobodniak's Eagle project will begin at 10 am at Moon Valley High School. Please come in grubby clothes and park on the East Side parking lot.
Our TROOP FUNDS ARE DEPLETED and our boys need an opportunity to raise personal funds for their own scouting expenses.
We have 2 opportunities to help with this:
1) Our Lenten Pizza Night Fundraiser is Friday March 1st @ St.Jerome's Hall from 5-7pm we will serve. We need all scouts and as many parents to be there from 4-7:30pm. All boys will earn a ratio of the profits based upon their participation at the event. We expect all scouts to be there the entire time. All scouts who bring baked goods enough for 12 people (ie. 1 cake or 12 cookies or 12 cupcakes) will also earn 1 credit for each such serving for 12. We will be serving 2 slices of Pizza, salad and a drink for $5 each or $20 for a family of 5. Please tell all friends and family, all are welcome to help support the troop. The Bake goods will be sold separately.
2) Our Annual Rummage Sale is on Sat. March 23rd from 6am - 1pm in the front parking lot @ St. Jerome's church. We will be accepting donations from 6-9pm at the front parking lot on Friday Mar. 22nd and on Sat. am.
What we need from you? Get the word out to family and friends via Facebook, e-mail, calls, etc. Encourage other's to both donate items and/ or to come and shop the rummage sale. We also need as many boys as possible to come Friday night Mar.22nd by 5:45pm and stay overnight @ St. Jerome's and assist until 1pm on Sat. Mar.23rd. The boys and parents will be manning the rummage sale and completing the Palm Stripping for St. Jerome's.
Lastly, The Troop is wanting to plan a campout on Mar. 15-17 to go have fun in Tucson!!! WE NEED TO KNOW THIS MONDAY IF YOU AND/OR YOUR SCOUT PLAN TO ATTEND by signing up this Monday night. We always have a great time around Tucson. The March weather should be perfect.
This next month is busy with Service, fundraising and fun... Let's do all in our power to participate in it all as the gain is ours to have.
