We will be having work days for my Eagle project Saturday, July 13th and
Sunday, July 14th. Saturday will be assembly of a shelving unit, and Sunday
we will paint it. Those of you going to Philmont, if you can make it out
on Saturday, I’d appreciate it, but if not I understand. Scouts and adults
are welcome and appreciated.

Please RSVP to me at reecewat01@gmail.com or by text at (618)972-5913 for
specific times, location and what you should bring. Snacks and
refreshments will be provided, but please bring water anyway, it will be
hot.

Thanks,
Reece Watson

now just 38 more tickets gets us to 225. However, that assumes that those
of you that have tickets out sell them. Please see the attached
spreadsheet for the latest and greatest. Let me know if you need more and
please turn your money for the tickets that you have sold. If there are
any discrepancies with this latest info, please let me know –

Invitation to Help Grill for Beaumont Climbing Tower Dedication 6/22 – Service Hours opportunity

Dear Troop 216,

Many of you know that one of our troop parents, Emily Joellenbeck is the
Greater St. Louis Area Council’s newest Development Director and will be
fundraising for the Cahokia Mounds District and the Council.

The Council is looking for a troop to volunteer to help grill and serve
hamburgers and hot dogs for the attendees of the Beaumont Climbing Tower
Dedication on Saturday, June 22nd. The dedication will begin at 10 with
lunch expected around 11 (after dedication and tours of camp).

If you are able to come out and help, please be there by 10 and find the
Joellenbeck’s – Neil will be helping on the grill and Ben and Sam will be
there to help as well – Emily will have a Development Staff role that day.
Please wear Class A uniform. Troop 216 will be cooking for around 30-40
for lunch around 11, but we could potentially have more if the weather
looks good.

The new climbing wall was part of a capital improvement project fundraiser
in 2018 and was recently completed and is a big addition to Beaumont and
our Council!

If you would like to help, please email Emily at
emily.joellenbeck@scouting.org or by phone (text is fine) to 618-410-2994
by 6/19 so we can count you in the food totals.

THANK YOU!
Emily
