The girls were amazing at Highland Games last month.  We had one young lady who took overall best in her age division.  We're looking forward to our district camporee this month, Survivor-themed. 

Our troop will be selling hot chocolate and baked goods  at Christmas on Chisholm Trail in Belton on Dec. 7th, 12 to 7 pm as we look forward to an exciting New Year!

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.
