A couple of very important messages:
First, there is a COURT OF HONOR this week on Thursday (May 3). Arrive at 6:15, dessert potluck starts at 6:30, program starts at 7:00. Please bring a dessert to share!
Second, SUMMER CAMP FINAL PAYMENT IS (PAST) DUE! I apologize for the confusion that resulted from my last email. To clarify: the total cost of summer camp is $330 (or $635 for two scouts from the same family). If you paid the $150 deposit in March (and didn’t pay the rest last week), you now owe $180 (or $335 for two siblings). Please bring your check to the Court of Honor on Thursday, or make other arrangements to get the payment to me ASAP.
Here are a few messages about interesting things going on at the Council level. Note: Troop 271 is not organizing/recruiting/registering for these activities. If your son wants to participate, please contact the person listed in the announcement details and/or register on your own.
Drone Day at GE: Because the Drone Day at GE was cancelled a couple weeks ago, they moved it to Sept 15. As a result of that, they have had some troops drop out due to scheduling conflicts. There are currently two openings available. If your son is interested, please contact Todd Powell (firstname.lastname@example.org) before May 3.

Troop 215 will be taking part in the unveiling of a new Roger B Chaffee statue on Saturday May 19. The organizer of this event would ideally like to have 100 boy scouts participate. The unveiling ceremony is 1-2pm. Scouts would gather around 11:30 or noon, encircle the statue, then clean up afterwards (police line). The organizer is getting pizza for the scouts. This takes place at veteran’s memorial park in Grand Rapids across from the Children’s Museum. Details: Bonnie Czuhajewski (616-466-6816).
