February troop events
Scout Sunday was a tremendous success for creating a presence visible to the entire church congregation who supports our troop, and providing them a delicious breakfast as a thank you. Several members of Dundee Pres. Church and staff remarked that is wonderful to see active boy scouts. Many have stories of their experiences as a boy scouts or leaders in Troop 42 and others units. Thank you to all who participated!
February cmpout is a cabin campuot out at Karp Pavilion at Camp Cedars. The Karp features bunks bed, a kitchen, and a large fireplace. Plan on outdoor events during the day but a warm dry place to sleep at night. The plan includes hiking and navigation by GPS and other first class advancement skills. If desired, bring a hand held GPS, smart phone with GPS app, and a snow sled if there’s still snow on the ground.

The PLC met last Saturday for the semi-annual Annual Planning Conference and developed a troop program plan in support of their goals of creating interest in joining the troop among cub scouts, monthly outdoor events, and a variety of program features. Look for a troop program plan coming soon. The PLC will meet next on Monday, February 19, and a regular troop meeting is planned for the following Monday, February 26.
