Hi Troop 349,
Mrs. Pelis is taking orders for Troop sweatshirts they cost $20.00 (cash or check payable to Troop 349). Anyone interested in ordering a Troop sweatshirt can either email me at email@example.com or see me at our weekly meeting. I will have sample sweatshirts at our weekly meeting if you are not sure of what size to order. ( S,M,L,XL) ALL ARE ADULT SIZES. Also, if you are interested in getting something embroidered on a sleeve, there is an additional $7.50 cost.
I work with a young lady who has a brother deployed overseas. She is on a quest
to send everyone in his unit a care package. A little something from home.
To complete her quest she needs empty shoe boxes. She asked me for your help.
I will be collecting empty shoe boxes at Wednesday’s meeting. If you can help
please do so I’ll see you at Great Hollow.
Thank you in advance.

HOSPITALITY COORDINATOR NEEDED
One of our own is moving on and as a result the Troop will need to replace a very important position. First of all I’d like to wish Alex Boyle all the best in his next adventure and Susan you will be missed also. That’s the bad news, the good news is if you ever change your mind you are always welcome. Please keep in touch. Mrs. Susan Boyle filled a rather important position for the troop. She was responsible for the little goodies at the courts of honor and troop events like the Halloween party. I believe we called on her services for 5 events last year. We need a replacement. If you would like to get involved in a small way please see me at the next troop meeting or return an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It takes a community to raise a child. The Troop 349 family could use your help. Thank you.
TROOP OCCUPATION DIRECTORY
Hello Troop 349!!
We have been asked about compiling a Troop Occupation Directory to help us utilize each other’s strengths and talents! To that end, we have created a form that can be used if you wish to take part in this directory. The URL for the form is:
Please feel free to add your job or business information to share with the troop. We will be creating and publishing the directory in time for the June Court of Honor.
Please and thank you of course!
