Any scout, First Class rank or higher, who is interested in running for Assistant Senior Patrol Leader of the troop should contact Scoutmasters Harllee and Ludolph at tonight’s meeting. The Scoutmasters reserve the right to deny a scout’s request to run if they feel that the scout isn’t yet ready to fill these big shoes or if the scout has areas in his personal behavior that need work first.
Remember that this is a year-long commitment – the first six months you serve as ASPL and while doing so learning how the SPL job should run. Then, after six months, you are promoted to SPL and a new ASPL is elected.
The election will be held at the December 1st, 2014 meeting and results will be announced at the troop’s Court of Honor on December 8th.
The past couple years Troop 108 has sponsored a bicycle for a young boy from the Unity Presbyterian Church Angle Tree.
This year we have been asked if we would sponsor a Scooter and helmet. If you would like to participate, please bring any donation to the next couple of meetings and see Mrs. Ludolph or Mr. Finch.
Dallas’ Eagle Project has two workdays that have been scheduled for Saturday November 15, 2014 9am – 4pm and on Sunday November 16, 2014 12:30pm – 4:30pm.
Please gather at 835 Springfield Parkway, Fort Mill, SC 29715 and bring work gloves and wear work clothes.
Lunch will be provided on Saturday – Snacks will be provided on Sunday.
Thanks to the residents of the Whiteville Park community for donating 870 pounds of food for the Fort Mill Care Center during the Scouting for Food drive this year.
Thanks too to those scouts and scouters that were able to assist with passing out or picking up the food collection bags this year.
Meet at the scout hut at 9am this Saturday morning to participate in the Scouting for Food collection activity.
This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and earn service hours as well.
Contact ASM John Bisel if you have any questions at 803-322-8332.
Since our collection bags are paper and Saturday is supposed to be a wet day, our troop bag distribution has been postponed to November 2nd @ 1pm at the scout hut (be sure to set your clocks back 1 hour on Saturday night).
Asst. Scoutmaster John Bisel is heading up our Scouting for Food efforts this year, so if you have questions or need more information about the rescheduled bag distribution, please call him at 803-322-8332
Scouts, we have a great opportunity for service in our community on two upcoming weekends. On November 1st scouts will gather at the Scout Hut at 8:30am and move as a group throughout Whiteville Park (the neighborhood behind the scout hut) distributing bags for neighbors to fill up. We’ll then canvas the neighborhood on November 8th at 9am collecting the filled bags to take to the Fort Mill Care Center.
Scouts will earn service hours for their ranks, they will have fun, but most importantly, they will make an impact on the lives of those in our community who so badly need the help and support of those that are willing to help. Come make a difference!
