SCOUT SPACE:

Our troop had a blast selling baked goods and singing Christmas carols at Christmas on the Chisholm Trail in Belton. 

The scouts enjoyed solving all the team-building challenges and making a fantastic stew at the district camporee at Camp Tahuaya. 

We're experiencing more cold-weather camping as we learn about the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma this month. 

Please join us in celebrating Scout Sunday on February 2nd!

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. 

DID YOU KNOW: 

The carbon placed in the atmosphere in the Industrial Age has lingering effects on us today? It did not disappear; C02 just builds and builds and amplifies detrimental ecological effects. 

We need to act. Not tomorrow. Now.
