Scouts discussed the FOP dinner, how they earned some tips, and a possible donation. The Pinewood Derby recruiting event on Saturday with 6-8 young kids attending was great! Fundraising this summer is almost complete. Parents can reach out to Mr. Lorenz to find out their Scout’s balance but more may be deposited from recent events. The missing orange tents have been found! Thank you all for looking and returning tents. If you still have any Coleman tents or gear, please bring them to the meeting next week. We will use them in September. Scouts worked in two teams to build the highest flag holder with rope and wood. This filled some lashing requirements for First Class. We discussed a big opportunity to complete 3 eagle required badges in one weekend. Details below and attached.
