Scouting for Food

Changes have been made to the Scouting for Food event. Saturday, November 19, we will meet at 10:00, at the Arnold Food Pantry (behind Subway) to help sort and package donated food items.

Pizza and Chili Supper

Our pizza sale and first ever annual chili supper have come to a close. We had a mild success, raising a little money for the troop. A lot of you have asked to bake and sell cheesecakes again this year, and I am pleased to announce that we will! Stay tuned for more information on this. Our baking day will be in conjunction with our December camp-in. As you know, while the profits from the wreath sales went to individual Scouts for their summer camp fund, the profits from these other sales go toward troop equipment. We are working on earning money to purchase patrol flies, Camp Chef style pots and pan sets, backpacking stoves, additional camp stoves, and leader tents. Additional funds will be used to purchase other desired equipment such as lantern trees, propane tanks, and the like.
