Hello Troop 149 Scouts and Parents:
Just want to make sure you have Sunday, February 12, 2023 on your calendars. We have 2 Troop activities planned with Cherrydale United Methodist Church.
Scout Sunday - 10:30 - Noon
Scout Sunday is celebrated each year in February. This service allows us to say thank you to the church for sharing their space with us and to share the experience of scouting with the congregation. ALL Scouts are encouraged to come to thank the church . We ask Scouts and families to arrive at 10:30 to help hand out programs and get ready for the Scout flag ceremony which starts the service.
We also have a number of volunteer positions to help with Scout Sunday that we need to fill ASAP so we can write and print the church program. Please consider volunteering for one of these positions and let us know in the signup form.
· Flag ceremony
· Children’s time: 1 scout who is comfortable talking with kids about why he is involved with Scouting
· Old Testament lesson reading
· Gospel lesson reading
· Boy Scout Law
· Ushers to hand out programs
Rise Against Hunger - Noon until 3 PM
Once again the church, Troop 149 and Pack 149 are partnering to pack thousands of meals through a Rise Against Hunger meal packaging event. There are jobs for all: Scouts, parents, grandparents, younger siblings. It is an amazing activity and we need everybody. It is fun! Information about the Rise Against Hunger organization and meal packaging events can be found at http://www.
For both the church service and the service project we ask Scouts to wear Class A uniforms.
