Troop 658’s
Annual Thanksmas Dinner Court of Honor
Sunday, December 14th
6:30 – 8:00
St. Francis Xavier School - Gym

Please consider this your personal invitation to Troop 658's Annual Thanksmas Dinner & Court of Honor.  This event is open to all our families and invited guests.  Please join us for some good food and good conversation followed by a ceremony to recognize our Scouts for all their hard work over the past 3 months.

We have decided to go a different route this year with food assignments.  We do have some food being donated, but as always we have needs for desserts, drinks, etc.  This year we have decided to go with a sign-up option.  We are using Sign-Up Genie to allow you to decide what you would like to volunteer to bring.  The link to sign up is below.  We are planning on 120- 140 people so your help is much appreciated!  

Sign-up link: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090D4DABAF2AA57-2014/

Mrs. Donerkiel is coordinating the set-up for the dinner; if you are willing to assist please contact her at 318-5767. 

I hope to see everyone there!

We have secured Vaughn Lodge at Camp Sunrise for the Troop's 2015 Winter Trek.  This outing is schedule for January 23-25.  We are limited to 18 total folks so we are limiting this event to the scouts and adult leaders only at this time.  

The boys attending will have an opportunity to work on advancement for Second and First Class as well as camp outdoors if they so choose.  Please sign up quickly if you would like to attend.  Once we reach the limit of 18, we will work on a wait list incase someone backs out.

Hello everyone!

As the new Troop Librarian I am working on the inventory of the troop's merit badge pamphlets.

I need everyone to let me know if you have a book from the troop library.  If you have any MB books please tell me which ones you have. If you do not have any please let me know that as well.
