The troop accomplished a lot last night. Starting the meeting with game time, we progressed through our opening ceremony and continued with an update on our service project — helping with the FBC food pantry.
The food pantry will require a move of inventory from the basement to a new storage room (which needs prep work) and then an ongoing program of inventory and preparing bags for distribution to families who need some assistance.
During the meeting we decided to go to Resica Falls Scout Reservation for summer camp and eleven Scouts committed to spending a week at camp this year. The $50 per Scout deposit is due, no later than next troop meeting (2/21/2011).
The patrols worked on Camping Merit Badge requirement #4 – Duty Rosters.
