Tonight is our first rural ICL event in Choteau. The District is hosting a spaghetti dinner starting at 6:30p, and it is going to be a great night for Scouting (And a lovely night for a drive out to Choteau ????)!
Scouting for Food
Scouting for Food pick up is tomorrow – stay tuned for the results! Food will be set out at 8 a.m. and picked up after 9. New this year, Scouts and Scouters are asked to enter the Great Falls Food Bank through the main door, not the garage door, to help with unloading. Vehicles may still use the garage door but pedestrians please use the front door.
Rotary Eagle Luncheon
The Rotary Eagle Lunch is coming up on April 9. If you are planning to attend please contact Bill, 406-761-7746.
Happy Montana Council Day! (We are Council 315, get it?!?) It was a great week for Scouting in the Lewis & Clark District.
Thank you to Troop 007 for hosting me at your Court of Honor on Sunday. It was a fun evening. On Monday, Troop 14 invited me to attend their Court of Honor. The SPL ran a great meeting! Congratulations to all of the Scouts on their rank advancement and well done earning all of those Merit Badges.
Scouting for Food has been the hot topic of the week. Laura B. has been busy distributing flyers, maps, rubber bands, and bags. I am incredibly grateful for all her hard work. If you need information about the Scouting for Food or additional supplies please contact Laura. Sean L. is doing a radio interview on KGPR to promote the Food Drive, too.
The Cub Scout Day Camp Committee met this week and they are working hard to plan an exciting camp. The theme is “Under the Sea” and you can register you Cub for Day Camp online today. If you are interested in helping with Day Camp, Stephen would love to hear from you!
On Saturday, Scouts are invited to walk in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade at 1:30 pm. We will march down Central Avenue celebrating Scouting and St Patrick. Wear your Field Uniform and meet at the corner of Park Drive and 1st Ave S at 1:15. Candy and trinkets will be provided.
Coming up next week is the Choteau Investment in Character and Leadership Dinner on Friday at 6:30.
Investment in Character and Leadership (ICL) is the replacement for Friends of Scouting (FOS). This campaign is our primary method of paying for initiatives like our upcoming Pinewood Derby, the Council Camporee and our ongoing expenses for our camp properties (Melita, K-M, Grizzly, Arcola).
The District needs YOUR help to speak to units in Great Falls this month about ICL during their Blue and Gold Banquets, Courts of Honor and other events. Can you help us? If so, send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will schedule a speaker’s training. Please help us make our ICL Family Campaign a success this year!
