A Thanksgiving message,

Even with all the chaos 2020 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I would even argue one of the greatest gifts this challenging year has given us was a new perspective on the things we’ve been taking for granted all this time!

I hope everyone made it through Hurricane Delta with no problems and are ready to get back at it.  This announcement is a reminder for everyone who has any Pine Mulch orders to turn them in this Tuesday night.  All orders received after Tuesday will be scheduled for a Nov 14th delivery.  On Saturday, October 17th we will be distributing our first round of Pine Straw mulch.  Scouts will be needed to help spread pine straw for a few orders as well as loading and dropping off the mulch.  Those Scouts who sold the orders requiring spreading are expected to be there to help.  Registration is open for those Scouts and adults who will participate.

First, and foremost, it is my pleasure to formally announce the appointment of Steve Newman as the new Scoutmaster for Troop 85.  I know Steve will be an outstanding Scoutmaster as well as a great representative for Troop 85, especially with the program improvements that have been made.
