- March – New Scout Campout
This past month we camped indoors in the Jadel Center at Camp Crown. We had 26 Scouts and 9 Adults. Our new Scouts were led by our Troop Guides who guided them on setting up camp, tents, food preparation and cleanup (also known as KP – Kitchen Patrol). Contrary to what most children tell adults, they can do dishes.
Other activities included working on Scoutcraft skills, rank advancement, a hike, team building games, our campfire program, and a little free time. A busy Scout is a happy Scout.
The Adult Patrol enjoyed Peach-French Toast for breakfast, soup/sandwiches for lunch, lasagna for dinner and chocolate cake for desert Saturday night. Of note, the soup with lunch was Peanut Butter soup. Never had that before. It was quite good. Love it when the Adult Patrol experiments with the menu. (Trying to get the Scout Patrols to do the same…)

- January Campout at Fort KellerCabin, Camp Rokilio
Great winter campout. Cool cabin, nice big hike, playing on ice, fire building, and fellowship.
- Feed My Starving Children
It was a great turnout at Feed My Starving Children yesterday! Our group packed 143 boxes that will feed 84 children for a year! Thank you to all that attended! If anyone took pictures at last night’s event, please feel free to share!
- St. Gilbert’s 49th annual gift-giving program
Thank you to those that organized and volunteered for today’s service event at St. Gilbert’s Church. Today marked St. Gilbert’s 49th annual gift-giving program! So many generous parishioners donated so many amazing gifts that will be dropped off at Catholic Charities and gifted to over 400 children. It was truly an amazing and heartwarming site.
