A reminder that the PLC decided that there will be no Troop Meeting next week because it is Halloween.
This Sunday, October 30 is the Court of Honor. Set up will begin at 6:30 in the Sanctuary of the church. The Court of Honor begins at 7:00. We have a few rank patches to hand out and a bunch of merit badges, most of which were earned at Summer Camp. Don't forget to pick up your Scouting For Food bags to put out the weekend of Nov 5.
The Ballston Spa Rotary is looking for help to unload the delivery of tree’s on Nov 22nd at 10AM. In the past we had the help of recent HS grads (this is a school day) who may have been home from college. This will take place at Curtis Lumber and a pizza lunch is provided. Anyone having any questions can contact Mr. Hosek.
If you cannot be at the Court of Honor to pick up bags for Scouting For Food, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make arrangements to get some to you. It is very important that we get as many bags out into the village as we can to have our best chance to fill the shelves of the food pantry. Remember where you put them because you will need to go back on the 12th to pick them up. A couple of things to keep in mind.....
*be safe: keep an eye out for cars, wear your seatbelt, be aware of what is going on around you, don't run
*be respectful: don't walk through anyone's yard, use the driveway or walkway, no yelling or screaming, don't make a mess
*do not hang bags on or put in mailboxes
*be polite: explain what you are doing and why, do not leave a bag if they ask you not to, say thank you even if they don't donate make a donation
*keep track of how much time you spend both putting out bags and picking them up. Keep a count of how many bags you take to the food pantry too.
