Scouting For Food

Posted on Feb 21 2020 - 5:52am

It is time for Scouting For Food, which is an annual day of Scouting Service; the largest food collection event in the nation.

We will meet at the troop trailers, in the FUMC parking lot, on Saturday February 29, at 9am

We need scouts, as well as adults to drive.  The more people helping, the easier it will be!  Please sign up online, so we know how many people are coming.

Make sure you sign in and out, as this is eligible for Service Hours.

Wear your Class A uniform, as you are representing Scouting BSA.  Please wear warm clothes underneath, as it may be cold, and a jacket over the scout shirt makes it hard to tell you’re a scout.

Each group will be given a small area and map, and if we have enough help, it should only take a few hours. 

Caprock Canyon Campout Registration Online

For our March campout, we are going to Caprock Canyon State Park. This place is beautiful.  There is a natural bridge, spectacular hiking, free range bison (if we can find them), and an old railroad tunnel from which bats emerge at dusk once they've returned from their winter migration.
