PLEASE HELP!!!! URGENT!!!! We need an Adult Leader to head up the TLT training for our Boy Scouts in Leadership. It is scheduled for March 5th (Next Friday night). If we don’t have an Adult Leader to head it up it will need to be rescheduled for the 19th of March. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

You can talk to me at the Court of Honor on Tuesday to sign up to Lead this program for the boys. Mr. Armenta did a fabulous job on the Dec. training. I am sure he has lots of insight he could share with the great person who volunteers for this training!

Comments Off on Friends in Scouting

Hello 88,

Our Court of Honor is coming up and we usually conduct our Friends of Scouting Campaign that evening. I would like to free up a little time that night for the awards so I would like to solicit your pledge now.
I will have pledge cards and special award patches Tuesday night. So please contibute to this worthy cause.
The cost for each of OUR SONS to be a Scout in the Denver Area Council is $150.00. I would hope we can at least cover the expenses.

Remember why I support this cause: The money stays here for our boys. It does not go elsewhere. It goes to camp equipment, supplies,remodeling,programs,…at Tahosa, PV, Magness…all the places our boys benefit from.

We were one of the top troops in Council last year with that expectation again this year. If your company matches your contribution, please remember to note that on the card.

I would like to see every one of us and our sons to wear these special shoulder patches.

Thank you for your generous contribution

Thank you,
Joe Skalisky

Comments Off on Date Reminders for Summer Camp

Peaceful Valley is June 27-July 3, 2010.
The cost is $230.00. Payments due dates: 03/16/10 for $115.00 & 04/27/10 for $115.00.

Cherry Valley on Catalina Island, California is July 4-10, 2010. We are projecting a total cost of the trip of $800.00 that will include: camp, plane tickets, ferry/bus transfers. This cost will get more firm as we start getting in estimates for the plane tickets & transfers. There will be 4 payments of $200.00 each. Payment dates will be 02/23/10, 03/23/10, 04/20/10 & 05/18/10. I don’t know when Spring break will be yet, so the March or April payment due date may have to be adjusted. The Cherry Valley trip is only available to second year boy scouts or older.

All checks made out to Troop 88.

This Is Serious
On Wednesday last week Mr. Skalisky and Mr. Miller had to meet with the administration at PEPC to explain why the Troop left PEPC a TOTAL DISASTER last week!!!!! Luckily, the Troop was not kicked out of PEPC YET, but it still could be kicked out if this ever happens again! ALL Troop 88 Scouts and Parents should stay after meetings and clean up to make sure this never happens again.

Your Troop Scribe,
