Patrol campout at Air Show

PATROL CAMPOUT OPPORTUNITY!
As a troop we did not have enough adults committed to camp at the air show at our last meeting.  However, several parents have since decided to camp on Saturday.  They are planning a PATROL CAMPOUT (not a troop campout). Mr Yodzrevicis, Mr. Branigan, and Dr. Hauswirth will be chaperoning. They plan to do the chicken dinner at $5.00 per scout, and they will purchase other meals as needed. Please reply to me if your scout would like to attend ASAP.  They will need to plan for grocery shopping.

Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 29th

We will be marching in the Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 29th. I borrowed the wording from the Cub Scout email, so we should look as sharp as they do!

Scouts will need to be dressed for the weather, wear long sleeves under your Class A uniforms. All uniforms must be tucked in and there will be a uniform inspection before we begin marching. Wear either jeans/long pants or shorts, but something with a belt. No sport shorts or sport pants please. We want our scouts to look sharp for this parade.

We are meeting at the Subway/Phat Pita parking lot and we need all scouts there at 9:30 AM.

Mr. James Lake has agreed to be in charge of the parade for the Boy Scouts this year. Scoutmaster will most likely be there also, either marching or taking pictures or both. I am going to try to order a wreath for us to present this year.

Forestry merit badge Saturday

Don't forget this Saturday! Merit badge opportunity right in your back yard at the Otsego County Demonstration Gardens! May 20, 9-3 pm. Need to arrive by noon to have enough time to complete the merit badge. Chris Anderson will be the merit badge counselor, you can contact him for preparation or pre requisites at ca122574@sbcglobal.net.  The program will have multiple stations. The program starts at 9am with the groups listening to information on the history of forestry in Michigan. The stations are done at your own pace. So you can show up at whatever time and start but be there by noon because if you don't start by then you probably won't get done in time.wear your Class A uniform.
