SCOUT SPACE:

We are super excited to attend the Highland Games council-wide camporee this month!

We held our Court of Honor in October; all our girls received their next rank and quite a few merit badges!

Before the holiday break, we will work on cleaning the trails behind the fellowship and help Troop 152 as they retire US flags.  Please place any worn flags in the SPARKS off ice by Nov. 17th.

Please, let's be thankful for how fortunate we may be... and be mindful that needs of the less fortunate occur all year long and require just as much attention as the giving holidays.

 

There is no Planet B.  We need to shake the tree, everyone, to defy the ignorance, hate, bigotry, and greed that places us all in peril. We have no other choice but to succeed. Failure is just not a viable option.
