I hope everyone had a great spring break and wishing everyone a happy Passover, Easter, and Ramadan.
I know some of you may have tomorrow off from School, however, we will have an in-person Troop meeting at 7:30PM at Immanuel Church on the Hill this Monday.
See note below from Mr. Wells concerning the upcoming camping trip.
For those attending our fishing trip in two weeks, please bring your rod and reel to the meeting if you might need help rigging up. For those that don’t have gear, you still have time to purchase some before the trip. Mr. Wells will bring some gear for you to look at and familiarize yourself with.
Please come prepared tomorrow to decide on the name of your patrol and elect a patrol leader! We will have two New Scout patrols this year!
