Tuesday February 11th - PLC Meeting at 6:00 dinner will be provided for those in attendance.

Tuesday February 18th - School break... no formal meeting. I will make myself available to anyone making and appointment, for a meeting to go over advancement. I am sure that additional Assistant Scoutmasters will also be available as well as some of the older scouts. Please let me know on the 11th if you anticipate coming on the 18th for advancement.

Sunday February 23rd - Scout Sunday at the Marlborough Congregational Church - The church has been our charted Organization for all of the 75 plus years the troop has been in existence. This is one way that we show our continued support and that we are still a very active troop. 

I would like to see every scout attend this event. This is the one time a year that I ask you to go to church to show your support for the troop, Chartered organization, and our community.

The service will start at 10:00, I would like to see scouts assemble 15 minutes prior to the start of the service.

Following the service you are asked to attend the coffee hour and to bring something to share (pastries/ cookies/ etc).

Additionally, this is the day that we are signed up to help with the Drive through Cafe.... WORKS OUT GREAT... attend the service and then go directly downstairs to help prep for the drive through. we will be looking for volunteer families at the meeting on the 11th.

This counts as service hours for anybody that helps with the drive through service. This is something that we do on a yearly basis... the difference is that this year they are starting earlier on Sunday (12:00 noon).... more details to follow at the meeting and next week.
