December brings us to caroling for the seniors at Carriage Club. If we have any scouts that have a good voice or play an instrument and want to do a solo let me know. We will also be collecting holiday cards and baked goods for the Troops. So bring them with you and drop off in the collection box during the Caroling event. The Webelo/Akela weekend this month offers Webelos a chance to camp with the Boy Scouts.
