Troop 35 Newsflash March 21, 2013

All Camp Cards and Money need to be returned by April 2nd to Melinda Keske. She will be at the March 2th meeting and the April 2nd meeting. If you are not attending either, please contact her to make alternate arrangements.

2 or more Troop Guides are needed to help lead out new Flaming Arrows. We will have 15 boys in this group and the more leaders we have the better to help them begin their Boy Scout Trail. If you are interested please see Mark H.

“Gone Fishin’! – anyone interested in earning their Fly Fishing Merit Badge, Fermi Lab is offering a free clinic. There are multiple dates to choose from, however we have a few interested in attending on May 11th. If you are interested and want to work out going as a group please let Melinda know and she will help coordinate this. Please see the Bulletinboard on Scout Tracks for the Responsibilities Sheet, Registration Form and Site Map.
