Troop Election Time Again

ASPL

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.

 

Christmas Angel Tree

 

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.

Troop 108 Gathers 870 lbs of Food

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.

Scouting For Food Update – Postponed Until 1PM on November 2nd

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

Scouting For Food Bag Distribution on November 1st ~ Bag Pickup on November 8th

scouting for food

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!
