Wreath Pick UP, Saturday, November 18th

You can pick up your order at the Sullivan house, 53 Pecan Lane in the Heights, from 9am to 11am.  Keep this day open to distribute your orders.  These are fresh evergreens and should be delivered to the customer as soon as possible.  I do have some extra items.  If you think you have a buyer, let me know and I will keep one aside for you.  extra:  wreath – 3, swag – 5, centerpiece – 2 and garland – 4.

Baking Cookies – Adults – Sunday, November 19th

We will meet in the kitchen at 1pm to bake and decorate cookies.  Scouts will sell them at the Holiday Parade.  This year, since we cannot use the kitchen that week (Family Promise) we will bake and decorate the cookies the same day.  Come and help!  It’s a lot of fun!

Holiday Parade, Friday, November 24th

This year we will set up our kitchen next to the church!  We will be making hot chocolate, hot apple cider, hot coffee and hot dogs!  We will sell on the corner of 27th and 3rd.  Scouts need to be there at 5:30pm to help with set up.  They can eat a few hot dogs for dinner – yum!  Dress them warm!  Right now the low calls for 33 degrees – perfect parade weather!  We could use a few adults to come to the church at 4pm that day.  If you are interested please talk with Mike Downs at the next meeting.

Model Rockets, Monday, November 27th

Scouts will work on building rockets at the Troop Meeting, November 27th.  Then on Saturday, December 2nd the scouts will send them into infinity and beyond!  Or at least way up in the air…  Make sure you are there to help build a rocket.  We will have more information on a time and place at the next meeting.

Swim Night, Friday, December 15th at the YMCA

Troop 2 sponsors this every year.  It’s a great way for cub scouts to meet our group and it is a lot of fun for everyone!  And there is pizza!  Come dressed in your swimming suit and bring a change of clothes.  That way you can hit the pool right away and then hit the showers right before the pizza and pop.  Bring a towel.

Troop 2 Christmas Party, Monday, December 18th, 7pm

We will have our White Elephant Gift Exchange again this year!  Bring a gift from home to share at this fun event!  This year we will be serving dessert.  Please bring your favorite Christmas dessert to share.  This is for scouts and adults!  Everyone is encouraged to come and participate!
