This year, our annual garage sale fundraiser, is on April 2nd. To help the troop, you can donate to the collection, or ask friends/family to contribute as well. CRT TVs and computers are not allowed. Assistance is available if you need it to move large items. There will also be the usual bake sale. I am unaware as to if or if not this event can count as service hours, but any help with this event is very appreciated, and will help our troop immensely.
Setup: 3:00pm – 8:00 pm (April 1st)
Sale: 8:00am – 1:00pm (April 2nd)
Cleanup: 1:00pm – 2:30pm (April 2nd)

Hope everyone had a fun summer and is ready for the three “S’s”: September, School and Scouts!
- Our first troop meeting of the fall is this Wednesday, September 9th. Because the church is busy preparing for their annual Country Fair, our regular meeting area is busy and we’ll be meeting outside in the big tent.
- Also, this Friday and Saturday the troop will be helping with parking and overnight security at the Country Fair. It’s a lot of fun and you get the chance to spend the night in the tent. This is a service project where we help park cars and provide overnight security for the We will need scouts and adults to sign up for parking lot shifts.

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow’s troop meeting starts earlier than normal at 6:00 pm because we have the troop cook-off competition. Bring your taste buds and may the best chefs win!
This week, we will not be having a normal troop meeting, rather an advancement meeting where scouts can work on rank requirements. If you have a specific requirement that you would like to work on, please let me know ASAP. The meeting will start and begin at normal time. If there is another party in our normal meeting room, continue up the stairs into the hall and look in the other meeting rooms. If you have any questions let me know.

Tomorrow is not only Pi Day (3.14…get it ?? ), but it’s also the troop’s big Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser. Here’s more information from Mrs. Syvertsen:
It is that time of year again, when Troop 45 holds its two biggest fundraisers. Please reserve Saturday March 14th 2015 for the Spaghetti Dinner.
Each scout is strongly encouraged to participate, parents are welcomed too. Many hands make light work.
There will be a sign up sheet available at the Court on Honor. Set up starts at 3pm and Dinner service is from 5 to 7:30pm, with clean up following.
Also we need to have store bought deserts (due to Health code) donated, Cakes, Pies or Brownies.
Please spread the word to families and friends to join us.
We’ll need everyone pitching in to make tomorrow’s fundraiser a success — and those funds are used all year round to support troop activities — so hope to see you there!
