Hi everyone. The lock in is this Friday evening at Eden Church. Please
drop off and pick up your scout at the lower back parking lot (off to the
left side of the church when facing it).

Mr Valley has offered to accompany scouts grocery shopping for the event.
Please let me know if your scout can attend Thursday evening at 7 pm,
meeting at Schnucks.

Remember to bring board and card games as well as any electronic games and
wear comfortable clothes for playing sports in the gym.

Anyone who is not currently signed up but still wants to attend the lock in
(scouts and parents alike), please let me know. The more the merrier. You
can bring money/permission slip that evening but I’d like a final head
count before grocery shopping please.

Other reminders—the Klondike Derby is Jan 20-22. * I need two adults to
commit to this event for the scouts to be able to attend. If you can
attend, please let me know.*

If you have not purchased tubing tickets for hidden valley Feb 11 at 10 AM
please do so ASAP. *Any adults willing to attend this event should please
let me know. *

*Reminder there will be quick parent meeting regarding summer camp at 8:10
pm at the 1/23/23 meeting. Please plan to attend. *

Thank you,

Christin Rigoni
