Troop 315 November Newsletter
We had a pretty busy October, Lots of outings and scout activities. I am so thankful we have a great community, Parents, Scouts, Leaders, all kick in and help with all sorts of tasks.
Our troop is still 31 boys strong and our calendar of events along with dedicated adults, help keep it strong. Looking forward to 2019, There has been talk about something , high adventure, in our future, This will take a lot of resources and planning, but is very doable. Scout dads and scouts alike are hinting at Sea Base, Philmont, or something in that direction.
Scouting for food brought in 419 items to help the food bank. Bloomdale also brought in 453 to the same food bank. Thank you everyone who helped and donated items.
I hope all the scouts are busy selling meat sticks and wreaths. A reminder. Wreath orders will be ready the Sunday after Thanksgiving during our bowling party. Dawns Flower shop has pre ordered the supplies so she is ready for the rush .
Meat sticks will be ordered on December 3, and 17. I will collect any and all order forms/money, you may have to get them here those weeks. Mrs Livingston has offered to help me sort and order correct quantities this year . Thank you Katrina
Scout meeting date change
All the scouts voted on a meeting date change to come in December and go through March. The change was offered to the boys due to a conflict in my family schedule during those months. The temporary meeting date and time will be Thursdays at 6:00pm. I will keep everyone informed as to when exactly it will take effect. I appreciate everyone understanding. This may not happen til later but I need to give everyone notice.

We have been asked to run a concession stand at the North Baltimore Library on November 17th from 10am – 3pm. We will be selling sandwiches, chips and bottled water . All funds will go directly to the troop program. Any scout wanting to help, show up at 9:30am and go to library kitchen. Wear class B’s

All our scout accounts are updated and I have everyone’s balance. Next month begins annual recharter. All scouts will need $33.00 for the 2019 program year. If your account has the money, I will deduct. If you don’t have enough to cover. I will be contacting those parents. The deadline to recharter is December 30th.
