This Tuesday, July 21, is a regular meeting and dress is Class B.  ASM Dennis Sessler will be leading the meeting.  The Troop will be riding their bikes to Coldstone Creamery for some exercise and ice cream.  Please make sure you bring a helmet and some money.  Chris Kelliher has arranged for Coldstone to give us a return of the sales from 4:30 to 8:30 as a fundraiser for the Troop.  This does not just apply to Scout sales so tell your family and friends as well.  But be warned, it will get busy once the Scouts arrive!

Kennicott Bike Trip:  There will be a meeting on July 21 at the Lions Club starting right after the Troop meeting and lasting until 8:50PM.  If you are planning to go on this trip you should not miss this meeting!  Make sure you bring your money in for this trip ($125).
