Scouting for Food — Bag Pick-up (This Saturday)

Thanks to everyone that helped place bags out last Saturday. We were able to cover all our areas. This year all the food we collect will directly benefit our Community and will be donating to MGC Food pantry. This Saturday March 18th is our Pickup date. 

We need about 30 people in order to cover our area well.  Last week we had 10. More hands makes less work.

Let's do our duty to our Community and help out. Parents and families are encouraged to come and help.
This should only take an hour or less depending on the help that comes.

Meet at the Scout House by 9A.M.

Got scratched at work? Get stung by a bee?
Wait Billy is allergic to bee stings...what do we do? 

This Friday night we will work to get through many first aid requirements that the boys need to rank up.  There are many topics from standard first aid to rescue carry positions. If you have any first aid experience please join us and share your experience with everyone.

Road to Eagle is a quick 30 min. presentation that will help Scouts understand what it takes to make it to the rank of Eagle. Parents are also encouraged to join us as they are an important part of their Journey to Eagle. 
Afterward we will work towards Rank advancement for all scouts.
