February 2015 Calendar


NOTE: There are several scouts who need to attend a public meeting and report on it to complete the Communication Merit Badge – and all could go to a meeting to fulfill a requirement for the Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge. We will plan on attending one such meeting as a troop this month. Meetings this month are on the 4th, 5th, and 19th. We’ll decide as a group when to go beforehand.

February 3: Cooking Merit badge, planning for banquet/interfaith worship service.

February 10: Troop banquet and interfaith worship service. Parents/siblings welcome. Come dressed warmly.

February 17: Combined activity TBA.

February 20-21: Klondike Derby campout at Krupp Scout Hollow. We’ll be working to earn the Winter Sports merit badge.

February 24: Patrol meetings and service project OR completion of Swimming merit badge.


Former Troop 125 member Ethan Farnes has invited us to help him out with his Eagle Scout project, and we're mighty glad for the service hours.

Ethan has volunteered to build shelves at Sand Creek Middle School. Some shelves will be used to house trophies, while others will be used to house the school's current and future rock collection.

Here's how the project works:

He needs volunteers two days this week: Tuesday, our regular Scout day, and Saturday.

Tuesday, volunteers are needed from about 5-8:30. Those of you who can meet early please gather at the church on Tiebreaker at 5 pm. You'll be given rides over to Sand Creek Middle School. Please bring a hammer and a snack.

Those of you unable to be there that early, a second wave will head over at about 7 pm. Gather at the church at the regular scout time. Also bring a hammer and a snack.

On Saturday, we'll meet at the church at 11 am, and then head over to the middle school. A meal will be provided.

If we play our cards right, we can use Ethan's project to complete the service hours we need for our next rank advancements.
