A reminder that payment was due September 27 for t-shirts which the boys took
home in May and June. If you have not already paid, please refer to the letter
you received with the shirts for the amount you owe. Or you may contact Chas
Hertlein for the amount. It is very important for the troop bank account that
shirts be paid for. Make checks payable to Troop 850 and give them to Chas
Reminder – Tuesday 10/4 is a committee meeting from 7 – 8 PM in the cafeteria – all parents are encouraged to attend.
Pancake tickets were distributed last week but several packets have not been picked up – scouts should stop by the cafeteria Tuesday evening between 7-8 PM and pick up their tickets. A large portion of pre-sale tickets go directly to the scout’s account to help pay for/offset activities. This is a great way to help the troop and for the scouts to save for the high-adventure trips!
Our pancake breakfast will be Sunday morning Oct 30th. This and the spaghetti dinner are the two fundraising events Troop 850 hosts to raise money to support the troops many activities. Thanks to Kelly Reupert’s leadership the basket raffle at these events continute to be large portion of the proceeds!
I would like to ask everyone to consider asking your employer for a donation to support this upcoming fundraiser. Kelly is a master at crafting unique baskets – whether it’s cash, gift cards, merchandise donations or sporting event tickets she always creates the perfect basket for any occassion. We will have donor recognition posters displayed recognizing and thanking all donors.
Another option to consider is cashing in any “reward” points you may have on a frequently used credit card. Gift cards for local stores, restaurants, and other rewards would be most welcome.
Upon request all donors will receive a letter recognizing the donation for tax purposes if they so desire.
Please contact Chip Branscum at email@example.com or Kelly Reupert at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like additional information. Early donations are most appreciated to give more time for Kelly’s creativity in creating baskets.
Thanks in advance for your support!
