Great News! We have (4) VIP tickets for Entertrainment Junction that we will be raffling off at Tuesday’s Court of Honor. Donations from this raffle will supplement our recent Pancake Breakfast fundraising event.
These tickets are valued at $108 and include admission to the world’s largest (25,000 sf) indoor train display, the fun house, VIP backstage tours and audio tour as well. These would make a great family outing gift for Christmas!
We’ll sell raffle tickets on Tuesday and you’ll take the tickets home with you that night.

Please plan to attend the Troop 850 Court of Honor this Tuesday Oct 11th at 7:00 pm. All parents and families are encouraged to attend to celebrate the achievements of our Scouts. A slide show of the Perryville campout will be shown while refreshments are served.
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!
