Happy Dad’s Day!

Good morning,

I hope that you had a memorable holiday weekend.  It was not a particularly relaxing one for the Andrews family, but what an outstanding Eagle Scout project!  Many thanks to the 35 scouts and adults who participated on Saturday, and those who also helped to do prep and finish work on Friday and Sunday, the charity Casa de Suenos now has a first class ramada and BBQ area along with some freshly weeded flower and vegetable gardens.  Scouts had tons of fun while actually also learning roofing, tiling and painting skills.  Congratulations to young Mr. Andrews on a well planned and unique project.

Last week was also the orientation meeting for new parents – many thanks to Mr. Benyi for organizing it, and for the many participants - both helping and attending.  Hopefully this answered many of your questions, but always feel free to reach out to myself or any adult leader with anything you are missing or do not understand.  Looking ahead, please remember that there is no tenderfoot training class this week at 6PM, but Mr. Butler and team will resume again on 6/28 for those of you looking to  progress on a number of the initial scout skills such as first aid, maps & compass and knot tying.  This is also the week that we will be meeting offsite at 7PM on Tuesday night at REI across from Paradise Valley Mall.  The address is 12634 E. Paradise Valley Parkway – just north of Cactus.  Please wear your Class A uniforms as usual.

Summer camp is now less than three weeks away.  If you are attending, please ensure that you are complete with payments, health forms, merit badge selections and books, and permission forms.  We have 29 scouts headed for a week in southern California – Mataguay here we come!

Mr. Cole
