Scouting for Food POSTPONED
With the recent news of the spread of COVID-19, the Scouting for Food Drive scheduled for this Saturday, March 14th and Saturday, March 21st has been postponed until later in the year. This difficult but necessary decision by Three Harbors Council was made with the safety of Scouts and leaders as their number one priority. Potential concerns regarding the hands-on collection and repacking of food donations from thousands of households across southeast Wisconsin informed their decision. They will share updates on a new date for the Scouting for Food drive as soon as possible.
BSA Activity Uniforms
Look for the logo design & shirt color to be announced very soon! We’ll likely have you purchase your own blank T-shirt and then bring it to our April 5th meeting so the “999” logo can be ironed-on. Costs and other coordinating instructions will be sent out by Chris Perkins.
Scuppernong Trail Hike
Join us Saturday, April 25th for this 1st annual hiking event in the beautiful Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest. We’ll choose our own adventure on this hike based on the abilities of our hiking group. There are three clearly marked color-coded loop trails ranging from 2 to 5 miles. Trails are open between 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM. The trails have a nice rolling characteristic through hardwood forest and pine plantations and a scenic overlook of Ottawa Lake and surrounding area.
The registration fee for this event is $7.00 per person and it includes a multi-color anniversary patch. You must sign up and pay your money to Mike Leffel by our April 5th meeting. We’ll meet at Nativity Church located at 6905 W. Bluemound Rd. at 7:00 AM and return by 1:30 PM. Permission slips will be collected the day of the event. Participants are encouraged to bring their own water/food/snacks to consume while hiking.
There is no food or water provided along the trail. Water is available at the trail head parking lot. All hikers should have good walking boots or walking shoes to prevent blisters, twists and sprains. Shoes or boots should be broken in prior to the hike.
Attend our May 3rd meeting to waterproof our crew tents. It is expected that all crew members, youth and adult, make an effort to come and assist with maintaining the camping equipment we use all year! The meeting will occur at 1:00 PM at Mike Leffel’s house 5218 W. Whitaker Ave. in Greenfield. There’s plenty of sunny space to work in. Afterward, enjoy the regulation-sized ping-pong table in the basement.
