Upcoming Troop 216 Events

Troop 216 family,

Hope the holidays have been treating you well. As we prepare for the 2022
Scouting year, I’d like to remind everyone of some events that are fast

First, we WILL be having a troop meeting this coming monday, 3 January at
the usual time of 700pm. This is out of the normal trend where we
don’t have meetings on days with no school. However, there is important
planning that needs to be done for upcoming activities.

Second, this is a friendly reminder that the Klondike Derby is the weekend
of 8-9 Jan. Monday’s meeting will be used for meal prep and last minute
repairs to the sleds as well as other planning details for the Derby.
Permission slips are due that night.

Future February event is a sledding event at Hidden Valley on the tube
slides. Stand by for more information on dates and times.

University of Scouting / Merit Badge opportunities will be held virtually
on 26-27 January and in-person at the SIUE campus on 29 January. Classes
are filling up fast, so sign up today.

Our Secretary, Neil Jollenbeck will be emailing the minutes from December’s
meeting soon.

Finally, we will be holding an Eagle Court of Honor to acknowledge the
accomplishments of our three most recent Eagles,Ian Khune, Mason Kane, and
Garret Valley. This event will take place on Monday, 10 January in lieu of
our regular meeting. Lookfor invitations and more details to follow.

Enjoy what’s left of the Holiday break. Happy New Year to ALL!
