imageThe program on April 5th was a presentation by our Scout Troop Senior Patrol Leader Grace W.. We have sponsored the Troop now for three years. In that time, we've had a 600% growth in members! 
 
The recent textile drive was successful with 1,000 bags being distributed by the Troop. There are 26 girls on the roster with three recently joining the Troop from the our Cub Scout Pack. Future activities include Mt. Pilchuck hike at the end of May, and more monthly camp out. The Troop will be going to Camp Easton in Idaho on the east side of beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene for summer camp.
 
In October, the Troop will participate in Scouting for Food, going door-to-door to collect food and delivering it to the Lake Stevens Food Bank. One of the presenters from the Troop is within six merit badges of being eligible for the coveted Eagle Scout award. She still has to complete a service project and a leadership role for the Troop. Currently their meetings are at LifePoint Church on Wednesday evenings. However, soon they will be meeting in the very room where we hold our Club Meetings. In response to a question, you must be 11 years of age or in the 5th Grade and be a Cub Scout earning the Arrow of Light Award.  Great work by our Scout Troop 88!
