Hello, after the Eagle court of Honor, there is going to be a funeral service for Mr. Hitt, who asked that our troop do the flag ceremony. I need some more people to help out with that, so please send me an email (david@easterj.com) if you can go.

Shrove Tuesday - February 9th 5pm to 8pm

The Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner is an opportunity to give back to St. Matthews for all they give to Scouts.  At Shrove Tuesday, we help the church serve dinner to the parishioners.  You will earn service hours and a pancake dinner for helping out.  The event is divided into two shifts:  early shift (5:00pm - 6:40pm) and late shift (6:20pm - 8:00pm).  There is an overlap to ensure coverage at the bussiest time.  Please sign up on the troop calendar for for one or the other.  Please check the attendee list and sign up for the shift with the fewest scouts.
