SCOUT SPACE:

Please join us as we celebrate Troop 150's first Scout Sunday on February 2nd.  Thank you UUFBC for your continued support to scouting. 

Last week we made history as we nominated the district's first female candidates to the Order of the Arrow.  We will begin this scout year with 4 First Class scouts and 3 Tenderfoot scouts returning.  Congratulations ladies on all your achievements this year!

Please see a scout about our Panda Express fundraiser on Feb. 5th; the flier or digital code will give our troop 20% of the sale!

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.

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.
