Wreath Sales - We will have a Wreath Wrap up party next week. There will be prizes and pizza. We will also have elections.

Summer Camp - Camp is a great time and a great way to earn MB. The troop deposit for summer camp is due Feb 2. Please make a deposit ($100) if your Scout plans on going in 2019. https://troop1005.ecwid.com/. Total Cost for Summer Camp is $330 less any Wreath Sales credit.

STEM and Training opportunities

The troop may add the STEM activities as formal troop activities, but scouts are always welcome to sign up on their own. More detail to come.

February 9th is the Winter STEM Olympics. Nova Award opportunities, but the big draw was the cardboard sled races.
