The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on August 1, 1907. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is always the Sunday preceding February 8th, unless the 8th is a Sunday, in which case the 8th would be Scout Sunday. Once again, we have a cool patch for all the Scouts that attend.
We will be attending the 11 a.m. service at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on February 7, 2015. We will be going out for lunch afterwards. Transportation home can me arranged.
It’s that time of year again where you can earn some money for your troop account and sell Geraniums! The Geraniums the troop sells are grown locally from Skagit Valley and grow really well down here in Olympia. People end up buying them year after year.
The Geraniums will be ready to be picked up the week of April 11th. So get busy and get your orders now. Plan on turning in your orders the week of March 24th. I’ve attached an order form you can use to help in your selling.

Tree Pick Up

This is North of I-5 and on the West side of Marvin Rd. We need pickup truck and/or trailers to carry trees. We’ll be picking up trees along the street and taking them to the recycling center.
Wear old clothes, bring gloves and dress for the weather. It’ll probably rain.
For the sixth year in a row, the City of Lacey has paired with Scout troops to arrange for curbside tree pick-up. While they provide this as a community service, they will also gladly accept donations towards future troop endeavors.
To be eligible for pick-up, Lacey residents must have their trees to the curb by 8:00am on Saturday. They need to be completely emptied of ornaments, tinsel, nails, and stands to facilitate easy chipping. Residents outside the city limits may deliver trees to the Waste and Recovery Center in Hawks Prairie and those in neighboring towns should check
