When I was a kid I went through Indian Guides and Cub Scouts. We moved around the time I should join Boy scouts and was disturbed about the god covenant part of it. I ended up dropping out.
I just received the following email from a neighbor.
I'd like to help this kid go to to camp but can't support the god portion of the boy scout pledge.
The girl scouts don't have that in there pledge.
Tooop 2 has produced many Eagle Scouts and shares a proud tradition with Napa community.
Like many scouts, I started in 1st grade (Tiger Cub) and have helped my local food bank every year since; I have gathered many Christmas Trees from the curbs of Napa and have recycled E-waste; I have helped on many service projects with Eagle Scout candidates, But my most favorite part of scouting is going to summer camp! Here we meet friends from all over the world, ride horses, learn sailing and water craft, build outdoor shelters to withstand heat and snow, prepare meals for 50-mile backpacking trips and learn about the environment.
Next year, Troop 2 is hoping to attend Camp Cherry Valley on Catalina Island. We are raising funds to make this trip possible. We have choosen to work with Mickman Bros. and provide our family and friends with a hand-made wreath made in Minnesota- wreaths will be shipped and arrive during Nov. 28th-Dec 5th.
Each wreath comes with an e-Z hanger and is being offered for $25.00.
Open the attachment to see a picture of the actual wreath style offered.
If you would like one of these wreaths, I will be collecting orders through October 27th 2011.
Just call me and I will come over to pick up the prepayment (cash or cheque) for you.
