Pancake Breakfast - Important Information– Mr. Krueger

Troop 41’s Annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser is less than a week away. Please get out and sell! Each scout is required to sell at least $100 worth of tickets to the event. To add some incentive, the first place seller will receive a $75 gift card. Second place receives a $50 gift card. And third place gets a $25 gift card. Remember, the funds raised not only go to the Troop but a portion of the money you raise will go into your scout account.

All PLC members and first year scouts are required to attend set-up Friday, April 28th evening at 6:45 in Pilgrim Hall.

Packets from all scouts can be dropped off Friday evening in Pilgrim Hall or when they arrive for their shift duty on Saturday.

Shift assignments will be handed out at the Court of Honor meeting on Tuesday, April 25th. There will be two shifts on Saturday. First shift is 7-9:30am. Second shift is 9:15-11:45am.

We are still looking for adult volunteers. Please email Kraig Krueger at kraigkrueger1@gmail.com to sign-up. (it’s the easiest volunteering you’ll ever do!)

Thank you for all your help. This is going to be a great Pancake Breakfast.
