  • Parents needed! Each Scout’s parent or guardian is needed to drive TWO times this year; there are five Flag holidays and each of those will need drivers for the morning and evening shifts
  • Tuesday, June 14th is Flag Day, and we will be calling on the older Scouts to distribute flags that day while the younger Scouts are at Summer Camp


Jon Ullman – Scout Master

  • The boys are currently working on a couple of Merit Badges
  • The Coin Collecting Merit Badge will start in May; Jim and Floyd will be the coordinators
  • Increase in Flag subscriptions: the hard work of all those who handed out door-hangers produced an increase of about 21 new Flag subscriptions
  • Monday June 6th: Trip to the Denver Mint for the Coin Collecting Merit Badge
  • Summer High-Adventure Trip: details are in the works for a 30-mile backpacking trip that will span 3-5 days; this “unofficial” High Adventure Trip will allow the under-14 Scouts to participate.  Trip will occur possibly the last week in July (around the 22nd to the 31st); several locations in Colorado are under consideration.
  • Preparations are being made for our Boy Scouts to participate in the Centennial Pebble program which will celebrate 100 years of Scouting!
