Scout and Parents,
- Weather has not been our friend lately forcing us to cancel "Get Air" and our Snow Cave Camping Trip in Turnaigan. Our top priority is our scout's safety and we appreciate your understanding. I spoke with Mr. Puterbaugh today and both of those events may be re-scheduled in the near future. I frankly want snow so we can enjoy our winter like many of our scouting families are accustomed to doing.
1. Scout Meeting at 7:00 pm 28 February
2. This Sunday 28 February we will be participating in Troop 219 Scout Sunday with our Chartered Organization Joy Lutheran Church. We have had a long and very positive association with Joy Lutheran Church.
- The attached invitation on behalf of Pastor Eldred comes to us from the Joy Lutheran Church Council President.
To summarize Troop 219's intent: We understand our troop is multi-denominational and in no way do we want to interrupt your individual family's worship plans. However, this is an opportunity for our scouts to join JLC for worship @ 9:30 and a brunch to follow. Even if you and your family is unable to join in the worship, consider joining in fellowship at brunch (approximately 10:45). We are showing our support as scouts by wearing our uniform and sharing with the JLC parishioners.
The committee discussed having each patrol contribute a breakfast meal; for those who may be up to it) one that is cooked in a cast iron pot (must be cooked prior to church service/brunch)...nice Scout touch but not required. We told the church that we would have a minimum of 5 dishes to share. Typically 40-50 people attend the winter brunches. This does not include our scouts and family members.
Please respond to this email if you and or your scout plan to attend our Scout Sunday Celebration this Sunday and let me know what you intend to bring to the brunch.
Uniform: A "crisp" class A Uniform (Please ensure you wear your uniform as if you were meeting a board of review).
Please contact me directly with questions as I am the designated POC for this event.
We have not participated with JLC in Scout Sunday and are excited to have an opportunity to do so this year.
Thanks for all you do!
