Happy Holidays! All of us at Troop 629 wish everyone a healthy and happy holiday
season spent with family and friends!
In addition to relaxing from school and sports, hopefully you will have some
time to try and finish out those Summer Camp merit badges! Use that down time
riding in a car or plane, or just lying around the house, to finish reading the
merit badge book, taking notes, and getting ready to meet with a counselor to
sign it off. Your new year will start off with a bang by doing that and it will
also help you stay motivated and keep you rolling along at a steady pace.
Our final meeting this year on December 17th will be the Holiday Party and
“White Elephant” gift exchange. Scouts participate when they bring a wrapped new
or gently used item costing less than $20 to re-gift/exchange with other Scouts.
Our annual Troop Tree Recycle Service Project is set for January 5th and all
Scouts are welcome to participate. We meet in the SOUTH CAMPUS parking lot at
8AM and dress in RED Troop t-shirt and other items based on weather… gloves are
always helpful. This is a great way to add some funds to your High Adventure
Our January outing is a sleep-in overnight at the Georgia Aquarium with some
behind-the-scenes encounters. It is set for January 11th. With advanced
reservations required, the due-date to register for this outing is our December
17th meeting – so please turn in your registration as soon as possible so we
don’t have to cancel our reservations.
Remember that flyers for the above, and for all of our events, are posted on the
Troop web site under the “Events” tab and copies are on the table in the back of
the room at our weekly meetings.
