For any Scout who is interested in attending this year's Scout-O orienteering practice on Saturday April 16, using the courses at Hale Reservation, please respond back to Mr. Rhodes by Feb 28 so he can reserve our spot. Do not delay, as these spots fill up fast - remember that we missed out on last Fall's competition by waiting too long.
This opportunity helps Scouts obtain First Class Requirement 7a, and the group that runs the course does an excellent job. Scouts who attended last year can attest to this.
The annual The annual Lions Club Auction is Sunday, March 13 affording Scouts the opportunity to perform some community service. If you're not going on the ski trip and want to participate, please let Mr. Rhodes know.
