All Scouts should bring their scout books. We will be continuing with advancement.

Upcoming Calendar Events - Please check our Website for the calendar. http://www.t1005.org/

COH - Court of Honor is December 4th. More info to follow

FOS - Friends of Scouting. We will have our annual FOS appeal at the December COH. Please consider supporting Scouting.

Wreath Sales - Wreath Sales are nearing the end. Final orders will need to be placed this week. Mrs. Simonelli will be communicating a cutoff date in a follow up e-mail. Let's make a big final push.

Merit Badge Mania - Merit Badge Mania is an opportunity for Scouts to meet with qualified counselors and earn merit badges needed for rank advancement. See link for more information. https://michiganscouting.org/event/merit-badge-mania/

This event fills up fast and registration opened a while back, but there may still be opportunities for those that need merit badges. The fee is $15, so even if you can not attend it is not a big loss. A good opportunity to get merit badges on your way to eagle. Please note that there are pre-requisites to most merit badges and it is expected that those will be completed before the event. Also all scouts should have their blue cards with scoutmaster signature ready before the event. Thanks to Mr. Carlson for making me aware of this event.

STEM opportunities

The troop may add these 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.

Registration: Coming.

April 27th is Nuclear Science NOVA Day at the Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant. You can earn your Nova award or just take the opportunity to tour the plan.

Registration: Coming.
