T1005: Important Reminders - January 30th

posted Jan 31, 2018, 3:32 AM by WebDev T1005   [ updated Jan 31, 2018, 3:33 AM ]

Scout Sunday
Scout SundaySunday, February 4

This is one of the few events that is important that Scouts attend.  We are charted by the Christ Church of Cranbrook and this is a great way to represent the Boy Scouts, to remind the parishioners of our relationship with the church and reinforce our relationship with Church leadership.  It is vital for a good showing at this very special service that highlights scouting. 

Scout Sunday is February 4th at the 10am service.  Scouts arrive by 9:30am in the rear of the Sanctuary, wearing full Class A uniforms, nice pants (no jeans) and dress shoes.  

All Scouts should be in attendance.  If you cannot for any reason, you must see Mr. Heverly

Summer Camp – Secure your spot NOW

 

SIGNUP MUST BE DONE TODAY

Just like last year, we must provide camp a count (and non-refundable deposit) by the end of the month.  We need to know commitments now!   You can sign-up online like other events and pay the $100 deposit.  Camp is $330 for the week again this year.  $280 for scouts that achieved their Wreath Sales goal.  

Camp will be June 24th to June 30th at Camp Rotary.

Please see me or Mr. Heverly if you are interested in being an adult leader at the camp.  Please remember, we can’t go to out with adult support.  Please consider going for the week and if that is too long, we can split the week in half. 

Registration:  Online  (Commitments and Deposit Due: Tuesday, Jan 30)

The Future of the Troop

 

There is a school event impacting some of our 7th/8th grade students at East Hills.  That impacts our Troop participation.  We really need support from as many scouts as we can and a few adults.  We especially need former members (adults and scouts) of Pack 1709 to be in attendance.

On February 22nd our Scouts will be leading a Robot Adventure activity at the pack meeting for Pack 1709 in Troy.  There are about 36 cubs in the Pack and building this relationship is a great opportunity to expand our ranks within the Troop over the next few years.  In preparation for this event, Kevin has secured 5 Lego Mindstorm kits to put together robot models the cubs can work on at the Pack Meeting.  Scouts will be assembling the models immediately following Scout Sunday.

Please register for Scout Sunday and the Lego Robot Build here.   The system will process the registration like any event, with no cost, please complete the order like normal.

Michigan Crossroads Council – 
Winter STEM Olympics – Call for Volunteers

Some of you have heard me talk about the Council Winter STEM Olympics event.   It is being held at Kensington Metropark on February 10th.   There is going to be cardboard sled races, Nova Award activities, Learn to Solder, a petting zoo, plus other fun.   I’m the “king of the hill” and am organizing the activities on the sledding hill.  I could really use some volunteers to help out during the day.  There are positions for check in, sled inspection, race starters and timers, popcorn maker (in the warming tent), crowd control, soldering support, and more. 

 

I’m looking for help from scouts and adults! 

Time will be counted as service time for the scouts (for scouting and for school).   The commitment would be from about 8:30am (checkin starts at 9am) and will end upwards of 5pm (times may be adjusted a little).   There will be a couple of shifts (morning and afternoon) and you can volunteer for one or both shifts (with a break for lunch).    Volunteers get…

  • Special Winter STEM Games Staff Patch armband
  • Hot Chocolate & Popcorn
  • Event STEMblem (patch)
  • Complimentary cardboard race entry
  • Learn to Solder volunteers will get a blinkie
  • Volunteer both shifts and get free lunch

 

Please let me know if you can help.  A few people have volunteered, but I would really appreciate all the support I can get.   THANK YOU!
