As you may have heard, Mr. Keegan has fractured his ankle and will be out of commission for about 6 to 8 weeks. Our prayers and well wishes go out to him.

Wonder if he will get one of those little 4 wheeled scooters.

MERIT BADGE DAY 2-17

The troop run District Merit Badge Day this past Monday was a great success. Many thanks to the Darby family, the Kassman family, Mr. Kugler, Mr Ayelework, Mr. Damiano and Mrs Clipper for all their help. We had 68 Scouts take 116 merit badges (don't know how many were completed though). There was lots of good feedback and requests for more days like this. Again, Many Thanks. (Hope I didn't forget anyone)

NORTHERN TIER TRIP JULY 17 THRU 25TH

The participants met on Tuesday evening. Mr Bauer has acquired a canoe for the scouts to practice their lifts and caries. Crew membership was decided and travel discussions resulted in the decision to fly to and from the event. A number of shakedown events are scheduled for this Spring. We will depart for NT on the 17th of July and return on the 25th.

We would really like to have 2 more scouts participating, so if you would still like to go, let us know.
