Its going to be a busy next few months, with Eagle projects, activities and more, read on:

First,Gina Lewis at Sacred Heart Church is looking for volunteers to help clean the inside of the church on Sunday, April 2nd at 10 am, we'll get a list going....

Jimmy is starting his eagle project immediately, and will need help not only with the work, but tools and experienced advice with the woodworking portion of his project! Watch for details to follow ...

The library has asked for some help, just a handful of scouts, at the time of their choosing, to take covers of books that are to be disposed of. See Mr. McKeon..

Lastly (for now), we can't do the movie night on April 15th, so start thinking about another possible date and we'll check with the church calender

There will also be a Committee Meeting on Thursday, and final payments are due for this weekend's Mt. Abram Snow Sports Weekend Trip. Everyone going this weekend should also know that we'll be leaving from the Parish Hall at 5 PM Friday night. Everyone should come already having eaten dinner. You should only need money for any snacks you might want to buy at the mountain and for dinner on our way home Sunday, probably $10 will do, and we should be back home around 9 PM on Sunday.

important meeting

While we know PLC meetings sometimes tend to turn into talk of the week meetings, this weeks is a very important one. As of right now we have a lot of open spaces for campout and activity ideas. So if you're a scout, call your patrol leader with ideas. If you're a patrol leader, give some time and thought to where you think we can go, and bring those ideas to the meeting!

Also remember to bring a donation for local animal shelters this week in honor and memory of Andrew Cavanaugh's grandfather, (Mr. Cavanaugh's father), who passed away recently.
See you Thursday!

In memory of Jack Cavanaugh...

Dear Fellow Scouts,

I would like to let the families of Pack 20, Troop 20 and Crew 20 who know Mr. David Cavanaugh and his son Andrew Cavanaugh, know that Mr. Cavanaugh's father and Andrew's grandfather, John (Jack) D. Cavanaugh, passed away this past week.

There will be a wake tomorrow, Sunday February 27th, at Ashley's funeral home (35 Oak Street in Middleboro) from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM. The leaders of Troop 20 will be at the wake at 6 PM to pay their respects to Mr. Cavanaugh and Andrew. Those of you who would feel comfortable and would also like to pay your respects to Mr. Cavanaugh and Andrew along with the rest of us, please feel free to show up at that time. If coming, it is suggested that you consider showing up in your full scout uniform.

For anyone who would like to make a donation in memory of Jack Cavanaugh, the family requested they be made to the Middleboro and Lakeville area animal shelters. The troop will help coordinate this by collecting any donations (pet food, other supplies a shelter could use or money) you would personally like to make at our next meeting on March 3rd and will get them to the shelters in Jack's name.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Mr. Cunningham
Troop 20 Committee Chair &
Sacred Heart Church Chartered Organization Representative
