Mr. Hampton wanted me to bring this item of business before the parents committee. It is time once again for Friends of Scouting. Mr. Don Mowery will be speaking with us requesting donations for scouting. Do we want Mr. Mowery to come to a parents meeting ( 1st meeting in March) or to the February Court of Honor. If we want him to come to the court of honor do you want him to go first or last?
The March campout will be the 18th, 19th, and 20th. They will be camping at Taum Sauk and will go on a 28 mile hike.
It is time for the troop re-charter. To re-charter your scout send payment of $21.00 by February 15th.
I’d like to thank our volunteers for taking on new or additional responsibilities for Troop 5. Diane Flesher, Bob Flesher, Joyce Renaud, Roy Dawson, Susan Ludolph, Susan Gentry, Dick Gentry, Debbie Griffith, Mike Morgan, Mark Spinks, and John Waggener.
Mark Spinks is setting up a free Troop 5 web site through showme.net. Mark has requested input from the parents committee as to what items need to go on the web site, by the end of February. You can talk to me or go to Mark directly.
The Elks Lodge has requested assistance with an early spring clean-up. It will take about 1-2 hours. The Elks will supply gloves and trash bags and will provide lunch. Details to follow.
Mr. Hampton has contacted Packs 20, 21 and 16. There are only 12-15 2nd year Webelo’s from these packs. The numbers are small for recruiting.
