2015 Health Forms Needed
Hello Troop 219 Families,
As the school year winds down and we get ready for summer, please keep in mind that a complete BSA Health Form including Part A, B & C is required for summer camp. This form includes a physical that must be completed by a healthcare provider. If your physical expires at any point prior to July 12, 2015 - you need a new physical. Please note that is not acceptable to submit a different physical form attached to the BSA form.
The deadline for our Troop members to have their forms completed is June 7, 2015. If your family has a scout attending Philmont, I will coordinate getting your forms from Carl Lundgren.
I will be attending meetings in May and June on a regular basis to collect forms. If you need to set up a time outside of scout meetings to meet me to turn in your forms, I can do that as well. Please take the time to review the forms and make sure all signatures are filled in. Please make sure you have the most recent Tetanus date noted - at minimum - on the immunization section. If your family is not immunized, please contact me for the appropriate exemption form. All of the forms will be reviewed for completeness prior to camp.
Please contact me via email if you have questions. I’ve attached the BSA Health Form for your convenience.
Thank you for your time.

Scouting for Food
Who: Scout and Parents Troop 219 (Optimal required participation 24 Scouts and a several parents
What: Biggest food drive of the year. Community Service hours Standing at the store front soliciting
food donations/Unloading food barrels, weighing, and documenting received food for the Eagle
River Food Bank
Where: Fred Meyer, Eagle River
Mr. Puterbaugh has been in touch with the food pantry to coordinate the truck & barrels. The longer the boys can work the better...will make the schedule easier. We will need about 20-24 boys for the day to make this work...about 8 per shift is optimum. Three shifts during the time will spread the wealth; 4 at the truck & 4 at the doors. Boys should be in uniform & dress for the weather. Programmatically, we knew the scouting for food would occur sometime in April. However the formal announcement with specifics did not occur until I signed our troop up for the activity last week. We need adults on each shift. Community service is one of the most important things scouts do...This is a great way to give back to our community. All the food stays in ER-Chugiak.
Appreciate your support. Please send me an email with your child's name and the shift they would like to work. Also as an adult if you can stay please also let me know so we can put you on a shift
Text Mr. Puterbaugh with any questions 907-351-8826.
I hope to be able to populate the attached roster with the appropriate number of scouts by Thursday to avoid having the leadership call the individual patrols. The actual time we are volunteering is 10:00 am - 4:00 pm minimum of 2 hour shifts.
