We will be arranging a contingent to usher during the service, bring a cake, do a reading, and prepare for and make an announcement about the 100 year anniversary of scouting. Mr. Trower will be arranging this as the SMIC. Please volunteer - this is one of the ways we honor and thank our charter organization and raise the visibility of Scouting in the community.

Webelos Crossovers. It is that time of the year. Mr. Kerber is arranging the crossovers and will have a sign up book at the Monday meeting. The goal would be to have a minimum of 4 scouts and two adults for each crossover. Den Chiefs must attend to receive credit for the position for advancement. Scheduled crossovers are:

Mr. Wickham InRecognito. For your information, I will not be at the February 1 meeting due to a change in my business travel. I will also be largely incommunicado from this Friday (January 29) until the following Saturday ( February 6).

Automobile Maintenance Merit Badge. Mr. Riley and Mr. Wagenhals will be pulling an engine and replacing the crank shaft. The project is 2-3 weeks out, but if you are interested in participating, it will go a long way toward your Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge. Contact Mr. Riley.

If climbing/rappelling is included, then Climb on Safely (which recommends the American Red Cross' standard first aid and When Help is Delayed or equivalent course) must be followed.
