Pancake Breakfast Sign Up now Open

Posted on Apr 28 2014 - 6:30pm

The annual Pancake Breakfast will be held on Sunday, May 4, serving food from 8:00-12:00. Uniform is the Class A Uniform (Shirt and Pants).

Sign-up is now open. All scouts are expected to sign up for a shift to help with this fundraiser.

Each scout is also expected to sell at least six tickets - which were handed out at the April 13 troop meeting.  If you did not get your tickets, contact Mr Andronowitz (pancakes@troop163.org) to pick them up.

Parents are also needed to help prepare food and can sign up online.

Everyone who eats at the pancake breakfast must purchase a ticket, even if you are working at the fundraiser.

The money earned at this fundraiser is used to pay for awards, camp permits, equipment, administrative expenses, and other expenses. The fundraiser reduces costs that would otherwise be passed on to the scouts. Successful fundraisers require the continued efforts of all scouts and their parents in the troop. For parents who don’t like to camp, this fundraiser provides an excellent opportunity to participate in a scouting event and help the troop.

Sponsor Appreciation Day this Saturday!

Posted on Apr 7 2014 - 1:59pm

On Saturday, from 8:30am-12:00noon, your help is needed to cleanup what this winter has left behind at St Jude's.  This is our opportunity for scout families to give back to the St Jude Parish for all that they do for us - giving the troop a place to hold meetings, Eagle Court of Honors, sell our wreaths, serve our pancakes and store equipment. Even if you can only give a hour, please come. Bring rakes, shovels, brooms, wheelbarrows and work gloves. Light rain will not inhibit the work.
