SCOUT SPACE:

Scouts are serving their community by raising the US flag at Temple football games this season.  They have started training for council's Highland Games, and hope to work on orienteering this month.  We're excited to have our first Court of Honor and adding one more scout to our ranks.

Our troop is hosting a "Spooky" Spaghetti dinner in conjunction with the Halloween Carnival on October 26th.  Please reserve your plate today:  $8 /adult and $4/child.

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.
