Howdy, Troop,

This may be a long email, but if you read fast I’m sure you can finish it before the big game starts…

Next Outing: February 16-18

We have a lodge (for adults only), so you have no excuse not to come! (Also, John Mish is coming, which means we’ll have good coffee.) We’re going to the Izaak Walton League, on Myers Lake Road near Cannonsburg. The main event will be ice fishing, assuming there is enough ice…

Please sign up ASAP. We would like to feel confident that we will have a minimum of 10 scouts on this outing before we finalize the reservation.

Upcoming Service Projects

  • This Saturday, February 10, Eastown Pancake breakfast at Calvin CRC (700 Ethel SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506). There are two shifts available: 8-10 or 10-12 (or stay for all 4 hours).
  • Saturday, March 3, Pancake breakfast for Pack 3217’s Pinewood Derby at St Stephens. Service and recruitment all in one! Stay tuned for more details.

Important Info about Upcoming Meetings

  • This week (Feb 8): PLC/Greenbar at 6:00. If your son is in leadership, please be sure he’s there.
  • Next week (Feb 15): Colleen Cleves will lead the skating merit badge at Rosa Parks Circle. Do not come to Mayflower! Go instead to Rosa Parks. Skates can be rented there for $1 for youth (or $3 for brave adults). If your son already has the skating badge, he can come just to skate, or he can have the night off.
  • February 22: We will hold elections for the Order of the Arrow. Elections cannot be held if we don’t have a high percentage of the Troop present, so please mark this as a “do not miss” meeting.
