Scouts discussed working on the prerequisites for the Sept 11 campout and played a game. 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 after a few more events. Leaders asked the Scouts to think about next summer and if they want to do a canoeing high adventure camp in June 2023 or National Jamboree with a group from the Council. If you want to do an activity, you don’t always have to go with our Troop.
Reuban Lorenz was promoted to Second Class
Nathan Sparkman was promoted to Eagle Scout
