Our last meeting was held on Tuesday, July 17 at the Black Forest Community Center.
We congratulated Wesley on his Eagle Scout Project (Refurbishing the signs near the Community Center) and thanked all of the people who helped him.
Then we handed out Blue Cards and patches for our second week of scouts at Camp Chris Dobbins.
Oren, Evan, and Iain all will need help on their upcoming Eagle Scout Projects. More details to come.
You may have noticed that the fire station next to the community center was torn down. They are going to build a park there and are having a heritage day as a fundraiser. They will have people showing how to do things that you would have to do back in pioneer times. Troop 70 is doing a booth there, and we need a topic for our booth. Some of the things thrown out were knots and lashings, camp gadgets, and Dutch oven cooking, but we are open to suggestions.
The Black Forest Festival is on August 11 (Read post under event news).
