Troop 45 Families:
The Troop’s Spaghetti Dinner is only about a month away and Maureen Jandrisevits and I have once again volunteered to organize the silent auction fundraiser for that evening. We are hoping that every family in the troop will donate “something” for the Chinese auction or an item to be bid on. We will be soliciting local restaurants and businesses for auction items too.
But this is your chance to rid your house of some unwanted items! We are looking for items that are new or can be re-gifted to support Troop 45. Other ideas for auction items are home baked goods, art work, camping gear, hand crafted items, gift baskets, movie tickets, and gift cards. Please let me know if you have an item that you are willing to donate. I would like to receive all items by the troop meeting on March 9. If you would like to participate but have nothing to donate, we are also taking $10 donations to make a purchase from the scout shop for items to be used in the auction. All donated items will receive a tax letter that can be included as a deduction with your 2011 taxes.
We appreciate your participation in this fun event and the members of Troop 45 appreciate your support!

Troop 45 will again this year be represented at the 10:45 service at the Shenendehowa United Methodist Church. Scouts will serve as ushers, greeters and acolytes. We will also be sponsoring the coffee hour preceding the 10:45 service.
For Scouts participating, please arrive in full Class A uniform by 9:30 to assist with the coffee hour and church service. Please take this opportunity to show our thanks to our sponsoring organization and support our Troop.
