This week in Scouts: March 15

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.

Say yes to adventures at Day Camp 2019!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.
