COURT of HONOR/FAMILY PICNIC
This Monday at 7:00PM we will have our end of summer Court of Honor and family Picnic. This is a fun event that is run by the scouts and is a great way to celebrate all the accomplishments from the past six months.
A few items:
- The Color Guard will be done by the Snapping Turtles
- Scouts, please look sharp and wear your Full Class A Uniforms, including Sash and Neckerchief. Since we will be outside (hopefully) you may wear Scout Shorts in lieu of pants.
- Please bring a camp chair!
- I will have a special gift at the end for all the scouts that show up!
Families, please see message below from Mr. Jahhs with the information on the CoH. Please volunteer to bring food items to help with the picnic!

SERVICE PROJECT- ALIVE
See note below from Mrs. Mulvaney and Mr. Workman, this is for our sponsor so please consider volunteering!
Hello Troop 131 Scouts & families,
We have another service opportunity to help out Immanuel Church on the Hill and the Alive program. They are looking for some strong, slightly older scouts to help move some furniture for some of our local community members. You will meet at ALIVE warehouse 801 S Payne Street in Old Town Alexandria on Saturday Sept 23, 2023 from approx. 8AM-12 noon.
Description of the event:
This is an opportunity for some of the older Scouts.
Lisa Clausen is Immanuel’s representative to ALIVE. And will be a point of contact for the day. (Scouts that went to Mount Vernon Community School might remember Mrs.Clausen as the school nurse).
ALIVE is in need of some volunteers to pick up and deliver furniture. They have someone to drive the truck, and are in need of some strong volunteers who can lift and move furniture. We need 4 strong folks, including one adult or 2scouts/2adults). Alive picks up furniture from people donating and then delivers to people needing those items. Alive provides the truck driver and the volunteers follow the truck in a car(s). It usually takes 3-4 hours on a Saturday morning.
Please see signup genius below, and sign up if you can attend. Unfortunately, I’m committed to a band competition for Ryan that same day so will not be able to attend. Please let me know if you have any questions, Samantha Mulvaney 760-583-4147.
