Thank You to All that Serve our Country
Today is Veteran’s Day. Today remember when the guns of World War I fell silent on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the eleventh month. In our troop, I would like to thank the veterans and active duty servicemen and servicewomen that have served both our country and Troop 26. If I have omitted your name, you have my sincere apologies:
Jeremy Adams; John Armitage; Stephen Boyd; Mark Detrick; Laura Detrick; John Dresel; Michael Frost, Sr.; Tonya Frost; Kyle Gilles; Don Gilles; Dave Helgeson; Lisa Kiamas; Brennan Lukas (come February); Mike Lukas; Gus MacNeal; Bill Smith; Ashley Smith. Thank you all for your service.
Yesterday, Max Weissman became an Eagle Scout! Congratulations! No road really ends, this is only the beginning of another journey. Please watch your calendars for the date of his Eagle Court of Honor, which will be sometime after the first of the year.
On that note, Eric Abarr will be performing his Eagle Project on Saturday, November 14 at noon. We need volunteers to help build fire-swatters for the Sand Coulee Volunteer Fire Department! If the temperature is over 45 degrees and it is dry and not too windy, the project will be held in his backyard, 608 4th Avenue North. If it is too cold, windy or wet, the project will in my garage, 315 4th Ave N. Please help out with our Troop’s Eagle Projects; one day you too will be asking for help!
The Troop and Pack 26 Bowling Party will be on Sunday, November 15 from 4-6pm at the Black Eagle Community Center! No uniform necessary; please come and to have a great afternoon bowling. There will be all sorts of fun prizes in all sorts of categories, courtesy of Mr. Lukas. Families are invited to join us, as we have the entire alley for the afternoon.
I am pleased to announce that we may may now move back to our home at Trinity Lutheran Church! After the Bowling Party, I would appreciate some help clearing the Troop property out of my garage so that we can put it back in our cabinets for our Troop meeting on Monday, November 16 at 7pm. We will continue working on first aid skills at this meeting. We will be working on bandaging and splinting wounds. Please bring your first aid kit and other supplies that you think will be helpful for these skills.
Whew, that’s enough for one week’s update. Have a great Scouting week!
Yours in Scouting,
