Dear Parents/Guardians and Scouts,
This Sunday, November 6th is our annual Pancake Breakfast and Chinese Auction. It is our troop’s biggest fundraiser and we must all work together to make it a success.
Set up for this event will take place on Saturday, November 5th beginning at 6:00 PM in the gym. Please make every effort to have your son help set up.
On Sunday November 6th It is asked that scouts arrive at 7 am, as to allow for setup of kitchen and training for the younger scouts. Class A Uniform. Breakfast service will begin after the conclusion of the 7:30 mass. The Breakfast will continue throughout the morning until 2 PM. After the conclusion of the event, we will be taking up the tables and returning the Gym to its previous state.
I would personally ask that any parents who are available, that you please donate some time to the Troop and help us at set up and/or at the breakfast. There is much to be done.
All Scouts are expected to participate in this fundraiser attendance will be taken and time recorded.
Parents and Scouts please DO NOT PARK in Church Parking lot on the day of the Breakfast, we want to ensure there is ample parking for guests attending. Thank you for your cooperation in making our breakfast a success.
