Pancake Breakfast Shift Sign-Up

Sign-up takes less than a minute!

We are looking for adult volunteers to help make our event a success.

We need your help! Because scouts are not allowed in the kitchen we need parents to step forward. There are several positions to be filled. Sign up is easier than ever. Just click the link above and select “Adult.” It’s worked great in the past to sign up for the shift your scout is working. Your contribution is greatly appreciated!

Save the Date Facebook Post

The past couple years Facebook has been a great way to generate awareness for our pancake breakfast. Please post the attached JPEG to your social media. It is a “Save the Date” announcement. This post will be followed up with another file containing all the event’s information. If you’re on social media, this is an easy way to help make our fundraiser a success.

Future Service Projects – Save the date Sept. 7th

Save the date Sep. 7th will be the 11th Glen Ellyn Backyard BBQ.  Mr. Solak is looking for scouts and a couple adults to assist in working the “green team” for this community event.  Hoping the PLC can include this topic in upcoming meetings and try to recruit teams of scouts to assist for a couple hours on that day.  For details please contact Mr. Bob Solak.

The event is all-volunteer run and all net proceeds go to Bridge Communities.

Summer Camp – Mr. Van Ek

Registration for Summer Camp is now open!  Visit the Troop 41 Summer Camp page to view information, download forms, and complete the registration process.

During the cold of winter we look forward to the warmth of summer and great times at Owasippe Scout Reservation.  In case you don’t have it on your calendar already, summer camp dates are:

Sat July 20 – Sat July 27

The past few years we’ve had 75-80% of the troop attend camp.  With the beautiful summer days, amazing setting in the Western Michigan woods, plentiful merit badge programs and activities, this is no surprise.  We are looking forward to another great year.

Contact Mr. Van Ek with any questions.
