The troop will supply hamburgers and hot dogs.  The remaining side dishes, desserts, and drinks will be potluck.  Please RSVP to Tate Hensley (tate@3hensleys.com) by Wednesday August 19th with your headcount and what food item you’ll be bringing.  Please refer to this flyer for how the potluck dishes will be assigned and additional information. 

Nathan Byrd’s Pope Pius XII Service Project

Nathan Byrd is a Life Scout working on his Pope Pius XII Scouting Emblem. While completing his Citizenship in the Community he discovered the Bridge to Home non-profit organization. He is collecting donations for Bridge to Home; they are in need of paper plates, plastic silverware, and napkins. You can help by bringing any of these items to the next troop meeting and/or to the end of summer party being held at the Meyer’s home on the August 22nd.  Thanks for your participation!!

Service Hours Opportunity!!

Steven Sebastian’s Upcoming Eagle Project
Steven Sebastian is starting to gather his resources for his Eagle Project, which will involve constructing lockers in the Valencia High School band room.  The start date of the project has not yet been determined, and will be partly influenced by the school’s schedule.   Scouts are encouraged to volunteer some time on all Eagle Projects, and in this case, adults with carpentry skills and/or tools would be very beneficial.  Please let me or Steven Sebastian know if you’re willing  and able to help out.  More information regarding Steven’s project will be provided soon.

Youth Protection Program
We strongly encourage all parents to read BSA’s information on Youth Protection and take the 20 minute Youth Protection Training (you don’t have to be an adult leader to take the training).  Links to Youth Protection are provided below.  It is the responsibility of all parents and adult leaders to review and understand the principles of Youth Protection, and most importantly, exercise those principles at all times when scouts are present.
Get information on Youth Protection here.
Take “Youth Protection” training here.
