Troop 955 Scouts and Parents:
The Pancake breakfast is on Sunday, February 8th from 7:30 am-12:30 pm. The troop needs 100% of its scouts to participate in this fundraiser. We will need scouts and their families to sell tickets to this event and help with various tasks throughout the day. On Monday, January 12th, I will be at the troop meeting handing out pancake breakfast tickets to sell and also providing a sign-up sheet for the scouts and parents to commit to a volunteer slot. Please come inside EPLC at drop-off or pick-up to pick up tickets and get additional information. Any communication regarding the pancake breakfast will come from the following email address: Troop955pancakebreakfast@gmail.com. You can email me at anytime regarding pancake breakfast issues.
In closing, we will be asking each family to bring a dessert for the bake sale. Also, if you have any gift cards or other items you would like to donate for the raffle, please let me know and either myself or Jim Layer will make arrangements to pick it up.
Thank You, Jen Trotman (mom of Sean Trotman)
FEBRUARY 13, 14, 15 (President’s Day Weekend) SKI & WATER PARK EXCURSION
We will journey to Wausau, Wisconsin, site of what is arguably the best ski hill in the Midwest. We will spend the day on Saturday skiing/snowboarding the many slopes of the Granite Peak Ski Area. Granite Peak can satisfy the beginning, intermediate or the advanced level snow sporter. We stay the day and take advantage of the empty slopes during the ski under the lights portion of the day. If you want to get in maximum time coming down the hill, this is the time to do it. No lines at the lifts and plenty of space on the slopes.
We will retreat to the warmth of our abode Saturday night. After a hearty Sunday breakfast we will head for the Wisconsin Dells and to MOUNT OLYMPUS to take advantage of the indoor water park and the indoor amusement park. Once everyone has properly relaxed in the warm waters (and smells clean like chlorine) we head back to Chicago with the dreams of a great weekend in everyone’s head – except the drivers, of course.
COST TBD: Cost may range up to $123.00 per person. I am still trying to reduce our lodging and meal expenses. Deposit of $75.00 per person required by January 5, 2015 to hold a spot. We must know by January 5th which is our drop dead date (figuratively speaking of course).
FEBRUARY 7 KLONDIKE DERBY, CAMP LAKOTA, WOODSTOCK, ILLINOIS
One of scouting’s premier events. Klondike teaches SOOO much and yet, is great fun. We already have sleds, all we need are scouts who are not afraid of a challenge and are willing to put their team skills and scout knowledge to the test – while laughing.
COST: $5.00 per scout
