Scout Sunday / Pancake Breakfast

To celebrate the start of Scout Week, Troop 20 will be hosting a pancake breakfast at the Parish Hall beginning at 7am this Sunday the 3rd.  All Middleborough Boy and Cub Scouts and their families have been invited, including yours.  We'll need some pancake and sausage chefs as well as servers so please make all efforts to be there.  I think a cooking requirement may be fulfilled if you cook some pancakes for our guests.....

Scout Sunday service follows the breakfast at Sacred Heart.  We will be attending the 9:30 service as a group.  Be sure to have your class A on.  It should have been freshly cleaned and pressed for our Red and Green anyway, so put a bib on when you eat on Thursday :)

Freezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing at Norse

True to Viking traditions, Camp Norse will will have really cold, wintry weather for us this weekend.

Be Prepared. Pack appropriately.  Even though we have a cabin, you will only be in it at night. You will be out in the weather most of the day on Saturday participating in the Klondike games.  Mr Brown will send you home if you are not dressed for the weather.

Forecast is for low 20's during the day and low teens at night.  Possible snow Friday overnight.

BTW   Let's thank Mrs. Franey for accepting the role of our new Troop Blogger
Huzzah!
