The Amazing Race, Scout Edition, March 7

Have you ever imagined yourself racing around the world, competing against other teams in a series of challenges as you reach each destination, just like the TV show?  Even if you haven't, this event, taking place in and around the towns of Nassau County, will inspire and amaze you, and you'll have fun while doing it!

Farmingdale Soup Kitchen Service Opportunity, Sunday, March 29

Once again we will be afforded the opportunity to help our fellow man by providing a hot meal to folks in need.

There are several scouts in the troop with low service hours that could really benefit from this opportunity. Remember community service in addition to being required for school is also required for rank advancement in the troop. If you’re not sure ask Mrs. Schwartz for your times.

 

We will leave from Newbridge School at 10:30am and return approximately 3:30pm.  Class B's PLUS caps a must, let’s look sharp as always!

 

All Scouts wishing to participate should bring permission slips from HERE to one of the Troop’s Thursday meetings by March 19 and please give to Mrs. Schwartz.   Questions ask Mrs Schwartz (516) 993-8102 or schwartzcnew@hotmail.com.
