Besides participating in the Cans Film Festival, some other service projects we have done are making Thanksgiving placemats for a local restaurant that provides free Thanksgiving dinners to those that have no where else to go. We made bags and filled them with items such as shampoo and soap and turned them into our Council. They took them downtown and gave them to the homeless at their annual Breakfast for the Homeless on Christmas morning. Soon we will be preparing a meal and delivering it to our local homeless shelter.
We have adopted a Mascot, a seal named Slippy. Last year she traveled to Massachusetts and Alabama. This year her travels will really be exciting. She starts out in Sydney, Australia and then returns to travel all over the United States. It sounds like she is having a great time. If your troop would like to host her next year (1998-1999) please email us.
also had the privilege of hosting some mascots this year. They always
get to participate in our troop meetings and activities. We think
they have as much fun as we do. We enjoy learning about different
areas and what different troops do for fun.
We have started
working on our requirements for Bridging. We have chosen the Outdoor
Fun badge to earn as part of those requirements. We know we will
have a lot of fun and learn many new things while earning this badge.
We are looking forward to Bridging.
We would love to hear from other troops and learn about your activities so send us an email and tell us what you are up to.
