Scoutmaster minutes 10-17-17

First, I would like to personally thank all of the scouts who came out and helped clean up Mulberry Run as part of the Grove City Creek Sweep last Saturday. Working with the other scout troops in Grove City, we were able to clean 2.65 miles of creek and removed about 800 lbs. of trash. Both the mayor and the director of the Parks and Recreation Department Environmental division were grateful for your help. Photos from our portion of the effort are online at

Secondly, the scouts have done an amazing job selling popcorn this year. They have sold slightly over $5500 this year. And with a few more weeks left, they could top $6K. Good job on all your hard work so far.

Tonight was a busy night as the scouts held elections and went over the campout this weekend. For the campout, we will be meeting at the church at 3 PM. The campsite is 2 hours away and this will allow them to get camp set prior to night fall. The weather looks good for fall camping. The days will be in the mid 70's with it getting down into the mid 40's at night. It will be a good idea to bring a coat, hat, and boots for the morning and evening. Maybe even an extra blanket for sleeping with and some hand warmers. They also planned the menu, which is listed below:


Dinner/Cracker Barrel: Pizza


Breakfast: Frosted Flakes, oatmeal, and apples, and bannanas

Lunch: Chicken Noodle Soup, PBJs

Dinner: Pork Chops with mashed potatoes and green beans

Cracker Barrel: Smores


Breakfast: Danishes

The scouts voted and the new Senior Patrol Leader will be I.S., and the new Patrol Leader of the combined patrol Flying Horned Diamonds will be C.V.. Congratulations! Next week we will start the transition from the old leadership to the new and work on filling the other positions in the troop.
