This year 3 Scouters from BSA Troop 365 were recognized at the 2016 Buckeye District Volunteer Recognition Dinner — Rob Kemp and Matt Gansl, as a Bridge Builder (a selfless commitment to helping youth be prepared for life through Scouting), and Steve Aspery with the Bronze Award for continuing and exceptional service to Scouting. They are pictured here with their families, a happy time for BSA 365.
Make sure you congratulate these three adults the next time you see them for their commitment to scouting and BSA Troop 365.
Calling all chefs! We’ll be preparing made to order omelettes on Easter Sunday morning, March 27th at the Church. We have done this for a few years now and the congregation really appreciates it. If you are interested, look for the sign up sheet at our next troop meeting and be in South Fellowship Hall in your Class A uniform by 6:30 am on the 27th. Everything you need will be provided—including aprons and instructions. (We’ll be done by 9:30 am)
This Sunday, Feb. 21, we will be recognizing Scout Sunday at church.
Services are at 9:30 am and 11:30 am and Scouts should arrive 20
minutes before hand. You are welcome at either service, but attendance
is expected at one of them. In addition to attending the church
service, we will help with ushering duties and hospitality hour
(cookies, etc). Please wear your Class A uniform. See you then!
Thank you very much. KMS
