February 2nd is Boy Scout Sunday.  One Sunday each year, Boy Scouts are acknowledged in their local churches.  They wear their uniforms and participate some way in the morning’s services.
     This year, we invite you & your family to attend the Astoria Church of the Brethren, where three of our scouts (and scout leaders) attend.  Sunday School starts at 9am and regular services at 10am.   Our scouts will be serving as ushers and greeters, so would need to be at the church by 9:50.  Please let me know if you’re planning on attending.  Or, you can also attend any church of your choice, wearing your uniform, that day.

     We will be having a day outing instead of a camp out this month.  On Sunday, February 23rd, we will be spending the afternoon in Canton.  We will leave the Scoutmaster’s house at noon and spend from 1:00-2:00 pm at the YMCA, where the boys will practice water skills necessary for their rank advancement and summer camp.  Then we will go to Big Creek Park and hike the trail between it and Lakeland Park.  They should be back by 5pm.  More information on this will be coming home next month.
