Pinewood Derby Help Needed!
The Pinewood Derby is one week away! We hope that your scouts are putting their finishing touches on their cars this weekend! We still have room in the Parent Derby on Friday night so please let me know if you would like to participate. It is a lot of fun! We also still need A LOT of parent volunteers to help with the event so please take a look at the SignUp Genius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040e4cadaa2da20-2018
2018 Blue & Gold Banquet
The Blue & Gold Banquet is on Sunday, February 25th at 4PM at the Crystal Sky Banquets (7941 W. 47th street, McCook).
Since we have so many new scouts – here is a summary of why the Blue & Gold is a big deal:
- We hold it in February to commemorate the founding of Boy Scouts on February 8, 1910
- It is a lot of fun! Mad Scientist Chicago will be performing cool science experiments for our entertainment.
- We have a ceremony for all Webelos II scouts that have earned the Arrow of Light – which is the highest award in cub scouts
- The Webelos II scouts then cross over to join the ranks of the Troop 24 Boy Scouts
- A delicious buffet dinner will begin after all of the ceremonies
- A souvenir program for each scout
- Finally, all scouts that participate in the event will be given a patch to commemorate the event.
The whole family is encouraged to attend. The registration will closed on 2/18/18.
Looking forward to celebrating with you all!
