No official meeting tonight, but optional meal planning for Headlands.

Boo hoo! I miss my scouts!

However, we do need to meal plan for Headlands, and I have an Eagle board tonight at the hall. Therefore, anyone who is attending Headlands this weekend is welcome to come to the menu planning meeting at the normal time of 7pm. (Optional)
If you haven't signed up for Headlands you need to let me know today (or at the latest tomorrow) so that we can buy enough food and plan for drivers. So call me, email me, text me, or message here so that I know that your scout is planning on coming.
