The flight is scheduled to return at 9:15pm. Scouts and families should gather at the airport ticketing level around 8:30-8:45pm. They are flying Southwest Airlines so will be positioned by Concourse A. You are encouraged to bring signs, flags, and balloons to give our heroes a proper welcome home.
Scouts should wear their Class A uniform. There is a charge for parking, so Scouts are encouraged to carpool to the airport. Learn more about Honor Flight here: http://www.honorflightcmh.org Please let us know in the comments if you are attending so Scouts can find a carpool ride if needed.
Webelos Woods is a great campout designed for Webelos and Arrow of Lights, their leaders, parents, and Scouts from a Scouts BSA Troop. We have been asked to attend this event as a sponsor for the Cub Scouts in Pack 98 that will be attending. There is no cost to attend this event. We will just be responsible for our own meals. Scouts from the Troop will help the Cub Scouts by cooking meals, providing leadership, and running activities. **Our Scouts will be working at the Knots station on Saturday so make sure you get in some practice before the campout. Scouts attending the campout should meet at the Church at 6pm so we can drive to camp together.**
-Eagle Court of Honor for Ben M.
Ben Morris is holding his Eagle Court of Honor at Stonybrook Church on October 2nd from 4pm to 5:30pm. He would like to invite all Scouts to attend. This event will be a great opportunity to celebrate with Ben and better understand the hard work and commitment it takes to achieve the Eagle Scout Rank. Please attend in your Class A uniform.
-Kids Afield: Individual Event

Stonybrook is planning a Trunk-or-Treat event on Saturday October 22, 2022, from 4pm to 6pm. Plan to be there 30 minutes before and after for setup and tear down. This event will be open to the congregation and the community. The Troop will have a Trunk at the event to promote the Troop and pass out candy/treats. Our design can be whatever we want if it has nothing scary. Please RSVP if you can attend this event. **Stonybrook is taking candy donations and so far have collected 3032 pieces of their 10000 piece goal.**
The fundraiser works to cover about 2/3 of what it costs to have all our fun each year. The dues you pay each cover the other 1/3 of the costs. Please make sure you remember to turn your $5 dues in each month. Dues can be turned into the Scribe or Troop Treasurer at any Troop Meeting. Scouts can also use their Scout account to pay their dues for the year. Please contact the Troop if you have any questions.
