All Veterans and their families are invited to participate in an assembly at Colfax Junior/Senior High School To honor Veterans. We would be grateful if you could attend.

When: Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 9:00 A.M.
Where: Colfax High School Gymnasium

Scouts are invited to participate in the ceremony. You must wear your Scout uniform to participate in the flag ceremony.

Heidi needs a headcount and names so Scouts can be excused for first period class.

 

We will be working the weekends of Nov 4th and Nov 11th. We especially need help on the weekend of November 11th for pickup.

On November 4th we will meet in the Rosauers parking lot at 9 AM to form groups, distribute maps and deliver bags. 

On November 11th we will meet again at 9 AM to collect the food. 

All hands on deck will make this service go much faster.

Bring a clean plain colored shirt that fits you. Also, bring any designs you like. We will be scanning your designs and printing them on Iron-on transfers. The transfers are white with whatever color printing you use on top. If you have seen my green Troop 550 t-shirt you will know what the final product looks like. This meant as a fun activity for you to get creative and do your own t-shirt.

Stake Youth Service Project

Wednesday, October 25th, 7 pm, Stake Center. All youth 12 and up are invited to attend. Youth will be working in assembly lines, filling and sealing bags of soup ingredients for our local food banks. There will be refreshments afterward.

This will take the place of normal Wednesday night activities. Please let me know whether or not you will be participating (so they have sufficient supplies on-hand and be prepared) by end-of-day Sunday (10/1). 

We will camp overnight at Elk River, Friday-Saturday. The main activity Saturday will be hiking the nearby trails.

Meet in the parking lot at Roseaurs at 4:45 PM. The drive time is approximately 2 hours. Be prepared for cold weather.

Merit Badge Saturday

9 am in the Pullman Orchard St. Building. We will work on the Citizenship in the Nation merit badge. It will be taught by Joe Harris. This session should last about one (1) hour. Scouts can easily come prepared to complete the badge and can work with their mutual night to get it all done (like visiting the post office). Here's a link to a document detailing which requirements will be done in class, and which need to be done either before or after.

As always, we are anxious to get a headcount of the boys that will attend and would appreciate YM signing up online as soon as possible. https://goo.gl/forms/QUj9UXfgIv2fNjGH2

We will be camping overnight at the Giant White Pine campgrounds. The next morning we will travel to Camp Grizzly for a service project with the Stake.

Giant Whitepine Campground is named after a 600-year-old white pine that died in 1998 and was cut down in 1999. It is still lying in the campground as a reminder of its existence. The campground is densely forested and is paved throughout.
