There is some confusion about next week’s meeting. Even though it is Regents Week for high school students, we are still having a meeting, which is the Cook-Off. Shopping needs to be scheduled for over the weekend or Monday or Tuesday night. Once again, we have a normal time, normal place troop meeting next week. Remember to bring your food and money if you have not already chipped into the Patrol cost.

Hi Troop — As I noted at our past meeting, we will be having a PLC Sunday 1/18 at the church in our normal meeting room. The meeting starts right at 7 and will end right at 7:45. Please be prompt so you don’t miss anything important. We will be planning for the month of February and for the Klondike. If you are a leader, you need to attend, as it is your duty as a leader to help plan. If you are unable to make the meeting, please let me know ASAP.

Pictures have been posted from the troop’s January 10th visit to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York in Latham (check out the Photo Galleries section of our website or click on the picture on the right).
About two dozen scouts and adults helped pack pet supplies and bottled water in the food bank’s warehouse. Not only did it give everyone a good feeling to give service back to our community, but we learned how important these services are helping people in need all over the area and how critical volunteers are to getting their work done.
The Regional Food Bank provides emergency food assistance to approximately 244,400 different people in our community each year – including 85,000 children and 13,000 seniors. In a given week, approximately 38,600 people receive emergency food assistance from the 1,000+ member agencies in the Regional Food Bank’s 23-county service area.
From the SPL: “This week, all scouts going to the Fall Camporee in Plattsburgh need to bring their equipment to the Wednesday meeting. Also, Patrol Leaders need to finalize the menus and cost sheets for this weeks meeting. MAKE SURE TO PACK RAIN GEAR AND JACKETS.”
Here’s a copy of the packing list / permission form for this weekend:
It’s been a great summer, with Scouts busy at summer camp, on canoe trips and travelling to Philmont! Now it’s back to a new season of Scouting with our first fall meeting coming up on September 3rd at 7pm (we’re meeting outside as the fellowship hall is busy preparing for Country Fair). See you there!
Hope all our Scout families had an great day, and that all our mothers got a special helping of love and appreciation today. They deserve it!
