Hi Everyone,

We just wanted to remind all of the scout families that Tuesday (9-28-2021) is our first in person Court of Honor. This meeting is for all of our parents to celebrate the achievements that your sons and daughters have accomplished since the start of the year. There will be refreshments after and this is great time to meet the other parents in the program. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm and be conducted in the Youth Center at CUMC. Scouts should be there at 6:30 to help setup. All scouts should also be dressed in full class A uniform. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

What:  Bethel Park Community Day

When: Saturday, 9-25-2021 from 7 AM to 4:00 PM

Where: Bethel Park high School Parking Lot

We need scout volunteers to "man" Troop 228 and 9228 booth (booth number 59) at the Bethel Park Community Day on 9-25-2021. We are offering "Angry Birds" Game. We start setting up the booth at 7 AM. The event is from 10:00AM to 3:00 PM. We pack up shortly after it ends at 3. This is a good opportunity for our scouts to advertise our troops and earn money for their SKF. We will have a sign up sheet at Tuesday's meeting. You may sign up for 2 hour slots and sign up to as many slots that you would like. If you are unable to sign up at Tuesday's meeting and you would like to volunteer on Saturday or if you have any question, please email Mr. Neal at blneal@verizon.net. Time slots are 7-9 (set-up), 9-11, 11-1, 1-3, and 3-4 (tear down and pack up).
