Popcorn Orders - Due Sept 28

Posted on Sep 26 2016 - 6:49am
Hello Scouts and parents, the next turn in date for any face to face Popcorn sales is this Friday night (30 September).  I need sales information by Friday afternoon so I can make any required entries on-line.  Please send me a note (scan of sales information) or call me at 703-426-4264.  I was not at the meeting when sales information was disseminated.  Please let me know if your Scout is participating in the sales program and if you have questions.  
Another option is on-line sales.  

Each Scout can self-register to sell online. Here are a few steps on how your Scouts can get started:

Popcorn Sales (trial)

Last week a number of scouts wanted to sell popcorn!  I am willing to give this a shot.  Some parents may be opposed, however regardless of your opposition, we need to support the scouts who wish to do this.

International Scout Day at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia

Posted on Sep 8 2016 - 6:48pm
Our council's International Committee (I'm a member) has been working to organize a very special International Scout Day event at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia. To attend, participants (adults and scouts) must register at the link in the attached flyer. The cost is $8.00 and it includes a neat patch. There is a morning session and an afternoon session on Saturday, 15 Oct 2016. Wear you full scout uniform (scout shirt, neckerchief, and scout pants or shorts).

Note the link to register should become active in the next day or two, but this is a heads up. If you have a problem, contact me at <phil.sternberg@gmail.com>.

This will be a really special event that you will not want to miss.
