Our Troop Christmas Party is Monday! I hope that you are all looking forward to a wonderful event where we can share food, revel in the accomplishments of our Scouts and give and receive some nice presents.
A number of you will be receiving awards, badges and ranks on Monday. I also hope that we can distribute the rest of our popcorn prizes. I will be sending a note to the families of each Scout that will be receiving an award at the Court of Honor portion of our party.
Parents, we will be wrapping presents for the Christmas Party on Sunday afternoon at Mr. Lukas’ house (508 39A Street North) at 2pm. Please make a point to come and enjoy some fellowship and refreshments as we wrap presents.
Our Christmas Party will be at Trinity Lutheran Church (1226 1st Ave N) on Monday, December 15. Please arrive at 6pm. The party will also be a potluck meal. Everyone please bring an entree to share. Trolls, please also bring a dessert and Panthers, please also bring a side dish or salad.
At our party we will also be holding our annual elections for Senior Patrol Leader and other positions. If you are interested in serving a term as one of the leaders of our Troop, please consider which position you would like to hold. Most positions require at least the rank of First Class. A list of positions is available at https://troop26greatfalls.com/contact-us/ and in your Scout book.
Finally, Mr. Boyd is putting together a care package for Assistant Scoutmaster Jeremy Adams, who is serving our country overseas for another few months. Please bring a sturdy baked good (cookies, etc.) to the party in a package (ziplock bag, etc.).
Happy Holidays to all of you! I am looking forward to our party, which will be our last meeting until the new year.
Yours in Scouting,
Scoutmaster, Troop 1026, Great Falls, MT
