Free Chili and Lets Beat the OA!

There is going to be a Council VOA meeting this coming Sunday (13th) at Loud Thunder. The meeting starts at 2pm in either the Dining hall or Dunkin Lodge. Look for the VOA banner. We will be Setting up the maze for HALT as a service project for the camp and then celebrating our success with chili. Please bring gently used towels and washcloths to the meeting, we will be donating them to the Salvation Army. There will also be information on a service project we're talking about doing at Niabi Zoo.

The weather looks like it will be a touch on the chilly side so a light coat and gloves might be a good idea for when we are working outside.

If we get more youth at our meeting than the Order of the Arrow you all get +20 life points!
