Scout Sunday! This Sunday, Feb 26 @ 10:15-SHUP* All are welcome!

Posted by gretchenriess on Feb 22 2017 - 8:06am

This is a reminder that Scout Sunday is fast approaching and we would love a HUGE turnout of scouts. SHUP and scouting has a long history together.  This is an opportunity for the church, the Scouts, and their leaders to come together to celebrate the partnership that we have together. The service is open to everyone of all faiths and beliefs and it would be wonderful if as many families would consider attending. The church also offers continental breakfast @ 8:30am, Sunday School for children K-12th grade @ 9am, Children's Church for siblings K-5th grade during church service, and a nursery for infants up to preschool, so there's something for everyone!

Finally, the Scouts host Fellowship hour after the conclusion of service. This is the time to enjoy a snack as well as to meet and greet one another. Mr. Tang will be providing cake, paper products, and punch. It would be appreciated if the Scouts could also bring a treat or goodie to share.

Please RSVP on the troop calendar today! **** SCOUTS-PLEASE WEAR YOUR CLASS A UNIFORMS**

For the first time, I have pictures from the campout.

I've got to say that this was a great camp.  We didn't participate in the district klondike, but we had a great time, and we got some great training in...and had a great time.  We had some pretty realistic first aid training, a lot of mountain climbing, the first time I saw Troop 65 build fires without Aaron's propeelants!  and a great meal prepared by two patrols who were actually doing some cooking and food prep--not just warming preprepped dinners!  And we had some scouts do scoutmaster conferences and are ready for their boards of review!  A productive, and fun camp it was.

Here are some of the highlights.
