I want to commend all the Scouts in the Waynedale area. They were well represented in this year's Memorial Day parade. I have never seen that many Scouts at a Waynedale parade before. Every year I make my way around to the adult leaders and ask them to bring, send, or mail me a list of those Scouts and Leaders that would be marching or did march in the parade. I like to put their names in the paper. I want the public to know that Scouting is alive and well and flourishing in Waynedale. Two groups turned in a list. Here are the names of some of those that are proud to be counted in this patriotic celebration, ceremony, and tradition. Thank you Scouts and Leaders.
Boy Scout Troop 44 – Scouts - Nicolas Shultz, Mattew Shultz, Joseph Shepard. Leaders – Jay Hughes, Walter Pressler, and Jack Shepard.
Cub Scout Pack 3344 – Leaders and Cubs – Christopher Seplak, Nancy Seplak, Rachel McNeely, Cody Jarvis, Braxton McNeely, Robert Houlihan, Randy Williams, Michael Vachon, Michael Grindle, Greg Shields, Lee Shields, Dameon Rhinehold, Bronson Long, Michael Long, Mark Reichole, Doug Brown, Andy Dukarski, Barry Salway, Austin Springer, Greg Brown, Andrew Reichle, Rob Dukarski, John Dukarski, Jacob Berghoff, and Dakota Salway.
TROOP 38 ANNOUNCES SUMMER CAMP NEWS
Troop 38's six days at Camp Chief Little Turtle are July 7th – 13th. By now everyone's camp fees should be paid in full and Scouts should have made their choices for merit badge classes. Scouts should plan to arrive at camp no later than 12noon on Sunday, July 7th. Each boy must be brought to camp by his parent or guardian.

Our last garage sale was so popular we've decided to change it from an Annual to a Bi-Annual garage sale. This is an opportunity to not only get rid of your old junk but to purchase some terrific bargains. Got a full garage/basement/attic/lake cottage you want emptied? (Sorry we don't "clean" garages, basements, and attics, etc – we just pick up sellable items.) Want to get rid of your old toys, tools, cooking utensils, furniture, antiques, collectibles, and stuff you didn't get rid of in your last garage sale? The members of Portage Creek Camp Association (Sponsors of Boy Scout Troop 44), said they are willing to come to your house to pick up your donations. You may drop off your donations at the Scout Cabin but you must call first and arrange for someone to meet you there. Please don't drop anything off in front of the door; it will only get wet or be stolen. Call and have someone meet you there PLEASE. We will issue a receipt for your tax-deductible donations. Take a FREE tour of the Boy Scout Cabin while you're there.
