Tree of Giving Caroling at Nursing Home on Monday, December 18
Just a reminder that we will be caroling Monday night at Everett Transitional Care Services, previously known as Bethany Nursing Home (Pacific Campus). Let's all again meet in the lobby area at 6:45 pm. We will sing up and down the halls and head toward the activity/day room for juice and cookies.
Our contacts are Mary Marburger, nurse supervisor, and Cleo Doyle, receptionist. I will plan to have song sheets of traditional carols for everyone.
See you all there..........

Seattle Archdiocese honors scouts
May 7th at St. James Cathedral in Seattle, the Archdiocese will have a ceremony for all scouts who have earned their religious emblems in the past year. You still have time to earn your Parvuli Dei or Light of Christ before then. The deadline for this ceremony is April 15th. Contact Darren Popkins for more info.
Basic Leader Training required for leaders
Basic Leader Training is a requirement for the pack and new leaders. If you are a new leader, or have changed jobs (Den Leader to Committee Member), BLT is a fun way to learn about what in the heck you volunteered for. An added bonus is that Ted Bullock will be teaching a portion of the course! Contact him for more info.
Webelos Scouts Invited to Camporee
This year, Troop 18 has invited the Webelos to attend the annual Camporee on June 4th. The Camporee is a place where all of the troops from the district camp together and have competitions in areas like cooking, building fires, etc. Troop 18 will get points if we attend.
All of our 1st and 2nd year Webelos (this years 1st year Webelos and Bears) are invited. Contact your den leader or Tim Hanley if you would like to attend. This is a good time for the Webelos to see Boy Scouts in action.
Fun Fest is.......Fun!

The camp will be on the 23rd-24th or 24th-25th of June and the cost is only $31 for each parent/son team. The boys (and you too) will be working on crafts, singing songs and telling stories at the campfire.
