Please bring in your loose change to our next troop meetings. Even a small amount can make a huge difference in our community!

Eagle Project

One of our scouts is working on an Eagle Project, building shelves and organizing the prop room for the SLHS Theatre Department. He'd like to have two to four boys help with fundraising before the play performance next Thursday, Friday and Saturday (April 28th-30th). He needs boys that will not be afraid to ask for donations as the scout has to raise over $1,000 for his project!

Please see the email newsletter for more details.

May Hike – May 13th -15th

If you have not signed up for the May Hike and are planning on attending, contact the Scoutmasters before May 3rd by phone or e-mail with T-shirt size, phone number and which hike you will be doing.

The older scouts are invited do an overnight 20-mile hike beginning on Friday evening and ending Saturday afternoon.

Younger scouts will participate in a shorter 10-mile hike along the Manistee River. This will be just a day hike so Scouts will only need a day pack with at least a Nalgene water bottle and mess kit.

All Scouts will camp out Saturday night and canoe down the Manistee River on Sunday. The canoe trip is about four hours putting the Scouts return time at about 5:00p.m. that Sunday evening.

Cost: $60
