Easter Chocolate Fundraiser

Our chocolate fundraiser/Easter sale will take place March 17 and 18 at the church.  All boys have been given chocolate and supplies to create our delicacies!  Please be sure all chocolates and cleaned chocolate molds are completed, bagged and tied and brought to the meeting on Tuesday, March 6.  Candy will be accepted until March 13.  EVERYONE is expected to participate as everyone benefits from the monies raised through this fundraiser.  A sign-up sheet will be at the March 6 meeting.  All scouts and parents should sign up for a time slot to support the troop and committee with this sale.  We appreciate your continued support and precious time! 



March Camp Out

As custom, the troop will be camping locally - Cathedral Pines (Middle Island) - for our March camp out to welcome to incoming Cub Scouts.  Food money and permission slips are due (in an envelope marked with the scouts name) at the March 13 meeting.  Permission slips can be found under the Forms Tab on the website.
