Every Scout should bring a pruner if he has one and a garbage bag. E-mail Mrs. Greiner at so she knows whom to expect (and so that she can make cocoa and get donuts for everyone). Project should last no more that 2 hours. Pickup location in the same parking lot.

Notes from the Senior Patrol Leader:

– BRING YOUR COATS!  It is winter, it’s cold, we go outside for activities.  Be Prepared.

– PATROL LEADERS – It is your responsibility to touch base with your Patrols and be sure that they are paying attention to the Skills Training and working on their Advancement

– CELL PHONE USAGE – Not in the troop meetings, except with very few exceptions when they are being used for advancement or merit badges.  

– Uniforms and Opening/Closing Ceremonies – wear your Field Uniforms and line up properly for the ceremonies.  

– BRING YOUR SCOUTBOOKS TO THE MEETINGS!  Opportunities for Advancement are being wasted just because Scouts don’t remember their books.
