Its time for my favorite court of honor! Why you ask? Because there will be a ton of awesome Thanksgiving food and our scout family gets to spend are part of this important holiday together.
There will be a few things going on at this one…
First, we are going to eat. Please refer to the signup genius to see what we ask you to bring. We need four people to cook turkey’s that the troop buys and the rest to bring an item to share. I will cook one of the turkey’s! Again, please look at the signup genius and sign up for what item you can bring.
Second, its time to recharter and put our deposit down for summer camp. The deposit for Summer camp at Chris Dobbins is $50 per scout. We are dividing the cost into payments to make it easier on everyone. Troop dues will also be collected. That is $6 a month per scout, so $72 a year. So here is the good news, the troop is going to cover the $25 cost of rechartering your scout so you will not have to pay for that part! Yay! You can pay with scout accounts or checks made out to “Troop 287.” Eagle Scouts do not have to pay troop dues.
Third, we will have the Court of Honor where some scouts will be promoted and we will put out information.
Please bring some canned goods or durable food goods to donate to the food bank/pantry. Let’s keep doing good things by helping people!
On a final note, you all did a great job on Flags! The Rotary club was very happy!!!!
Set up for the COH will begin at 530pm, we start at 6pm, and should end around 8pm or earlier.
I look forward to being thankful with all of you and sharing this special moment.
