Midweek Update for May 19th


We are still missing tents from before the May Hike. A cash reward is being offered (by the Communication Chair) for the return of all tents that were missing before the May Hike.

If you think you may have a tent, PLEASE take a moment to see if a tent inadvertently came back to you. See the email newsletter for more information.


Next Troop Meeting: Flags on the Graves of the Veterans

When: May 24th 6:30 pm

Where: Spring Lake Cemetery

We will be placing flags on the graves of veterans.

There will be hot dogs afterwards at Central Park.

Board of Reviews will also be held again this evening.


NOTICE: Indy 500 Trip is in jeopardy of being canceled!

The Indy 500 Trip is May 28-29th. This is a great weekend trip!

Looking for Donation: A Camper or Fifth Wheel

WYLD/Haunted Hall is looking for a camper or a fifth-wheel as a portable sound/equipment room for Haunted Hall. This is a really good donation/tax write-off opportunity: as we plan on using the vehicle, you can write off a higher value than if you were normally donating it.

See the email newsletter for more information.


WYLD/Haunted Hall Meeting

Our next Haunted Hall Meeting will be Wed. May 25th 6:30 to 8:30 at Barber school. All Troop 14 parents are invited to attend.


Upcoming Eagle Ceremonies

We hope you can plan on attending. This is a great way to show new scouts how all their hard work will eventually pay off.

When: Saturday, May 28th at 3 pm

Where: 15745 Vine St. Spring Lake


Community Service Opportunity! Spring Lake Wooden Boat Show on June 4th at Keenan Marina
