Hello everyone, tonight's message will be short, I hope.

Tomorrow, or today depending on when you see this, is Scout Sunday.  We have been invited, and accepted, to participate in the Scout Sunday services at First Baptist Church of Mandeville.  This should be of no surprise to the Scouts.  We haver discussed it for a couple of weeks now.  We participated last year and we received a very warm welcome from the church, as I believe we will tomorrow.  I know most of our Troop may not belong to this church, but they are our Charter Organization and they do not ask much of us.  'Scouts are Reverent' and we should go to their mass as a show of appreciation and thanks for them being there for us.  And the parents are also invited to participate with us.  If you are attending, please show up in Class A.  We need to be there no later than 10AM to meet up with Mr. Steve.

Troop 85 Update, 1/15/2022

Only a few issues for this week’s update.  First is the campout next weekend (January 21 thru 23) at 5 Lakes.  Registration for this event is not what was anticipated.  We will be completing 'Totin Chip' requirements as well as working on an environmental service project.  Remember, service hours are required for advancement.  It is our goal to have every Scout advance one rank by the May CoH.  If you plan on attending, please go to the website and register.  If you are not attending, please go to the website and provide your regrets.  The last-minute registrations lately are making it extremely difficult to plan these events.  For those who have registered, thank you.
