Other Upcoming Events:

Cub Cup Volunteers Needed

  • Bill Berg-Hillinger is collecting volunteers for the Cub Scout Cup again this year.  As usual, for anyone who needs a large amount of service hours in a short amount of time, this is it!  About 8 or 9 hours if they stay the whole day.  Lunch provided.  It’s Saturday, May 16 at Hart Campgrounds.  Ideally, I’d like to get names by March 31st in order to get t-shirts for the volunteers.  Interested people should email Bill at bill@idplayground.com
Super TLC
  • The next “Super TLC” (where the Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leaders plan our future outings) is scheduled for Thursday, March 19.  If you have an idea for an activity or event for Fall/Winter 2015, let your patrol leader know!
Merit Badge Midway, March 21 in Saugus
  • The Bill Hart district is holding a Merit Badge Midway on March 21st at the LDS Church at 19513 Drycliff Ave, and Corner of Camp Plenty Rd.  In Saugus.
  • You can get more information here. Note that each scout should contract the Merit Badge Counselors prior to the Midway to learn about any prerequisites.
Service Opportunities
  • There will be two service opportunities for the Women’s shelter in Newhall in May… stay tuned for more information.
