Scouts and families,
Our first fundraiser of the year will be a Fritz’s Sticky Bun sale at all masses the weekend of September 30th and October 1st.
As always we ask everyone to help at least one and preferable two masses. We need SCOUTS at every door (not parents) -people want to support scouting so they need to see the SCOUTS at the doors in Class B uniforms. ALSO, if you sign up for masses it is very important you show up. We have 5 doors to cover at church and if I don’t have enough scouts, that is profits loss for the troop.
Please use the link below to sign up for masses:
If you want to sell outside of mass at work or to family members feel free to do so. Just keep a count and let me know how many of each kind no later than Friday, September 22nd at noon and what mass you will pick them up at.
I am attaching a flyer to help you sell which provides all the detail. Flier is 2 pages. Stickybuns are $6.00 a box.
Please be at the troop hall by 6:00 PM. We will departing for the camping trip at 6:30 PM sharp.
Scouts will need to provide money for food and transportation. As discussed in previous meetings, the price of food is now $15.00 and the transportation fee is $5.00.

For those scouts not going camping, help with Coin Weeks’ Eagle Project would be appreciated!
At last Monday’s meeting I asked for volunteers to assist with my Eagle Scout Project on Saturday May 19th. I am asking for participation of scouts that are not attending the Whitewater Rafting trip. The project entails installing an historic mile marker on Route 13 the intersection of Bristol Pike and Park Avenue in Bensalem. All those who show up should be there at 10, and will work for about 3 hours. Pizza will be provided for all who put into the project.
The troop will be departing at 6:30 PM for Whitewater Challengers. Your cooperation is appreciated to allow the troop to arrive as early as possible to set up camp.
