Webelos January News
We'll Be Loyal Scouts
This month we are working on the Engineer elective, page 360 in the Webelos Handbook. We have an exciting month planned, so please have your scout at the Church by 7 pm on Wednesdays, in uniform with his handbook. We start every meeting in the Chapel overflow section. In addition to our regular Wednesday meetings, there are two additional opportunities for scouting fun.
Saturday, January 18 is the Pinewood Derby. Cars were handed out at the Pack Meeting in November. If your scout did not get a car on November 18, please let us know. There is more information on Pinewood Derby later in this newsletter.
Saturday, January 30, we have been invited to tour All Star Machine and Manufacturing where scouts will see the final results of their engineering. Scroll down for more information!
