NEWSFLASH… Bonus week challenge!!!
A Scout is Thrifty so here is a bonus for those who earn their way.
For each Scout that reaches the $1200.00 goal by Tuesday night, you will get multiple chances or pulls out of the money bag! Yes, that’s correct. We are going to reward those Scouts with chances of winning cash! Here’s how it works:
- All orders must be entered online by 6 pm Tuesday.
- Scouts achieving wreath sales of $1200.00 will be allowed to draw Three bills from the money bag.
- Scouts that attain sales of $2000.00 will draw five bills from the money bag.
The money bag challenge is for this week only! Get your orders into ScoutTrack by 6pm Tuesday October 9th. Add to your sales by walking a new street, going to a new neighborhood. Remember to suggest a wreath for inside- the boxwood or maybe a centerpiece basket or Holly.
You Gotta Wanna…. Sell Wreaths… Go for it and grab some CA$H!
In an effort to INCREASE communication and effectively spread the word, Troop 35 will be posting information weekly. The troop calls it “Circle” but sometimes the information makes it home, and sometimes not. We do know the planners, drivers, and major decision-makers (aka parents) need this information.
So here’s our new app… we don’t have a catchy name or catchy graphic, but if you have one post it to the comments section and please pass it on! Here’s the weekly update. Continue reading
Jonah, our chaplain, says grace before dinner. We are celebrating our individual scout troop’s achievements as well as sharing the fellowship of scouting.
BSA Tenderfoot badge
It’s hard to believe that summer is close to an end, where did it go?
Believe it or not school is just around the corner as well as the Fall Court of Honor and advancement. The scouts worked hard at summer camp and the months leading up up to camp working on advancement requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class rank advancement.
Last night at PLC, the scouts planned time to check in and check up with the first year scouts to make sure they are moving forward. Please bring your scout book to the next meeting on Tuesday, 8/14 and every meeting, for that matter. Once scouts have met the requirements for the rank, they’ll need to schedule a scoutmaster conference, and then, a board of review.
It’s a great time to be a scout, and it’s a great time be a boy!
Enjoy the last few days of summer – go to the pool, get outside, play, and enjoy the warm weather!
