OLD POP-UP CAMPER WANTED
Boy Scout Troop 44 is in need of a 'gear' trailer. Do you have an old pop-up camping trailer or other suitable trailer that you don't want? Want to donate it to Portage Creek Camp Association, sponsors of Boy Scout Troop 44? The troop needs a trailer to haul camping gear and would prefer something that can be closed and locked. Donations should be tax deductible. Call Jack Shepard at 436-2422 or Ray McCune at 747-6512 or 747-4535.
IT'S GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME
Something new or at least new to this writer – the Girl Scouts are now bringing cookies to your door – no more waiting for your order to be processed. That's what I like; cookies on demand, no waiting. I must admit I'm a cookie junkie and have to date, bought more than my share of boxes. I like them all but prefer any cookie with peanut butter in or on it. I predict that the Girl Scouts will sell more cookies using this new method.
Please troop leaders, give me information on your troop and where you can be contacted if I get a cookie craving and run out, I will publish names and phone numbers right here in SCOUTING SMOKE SIGNALS.
This column is for ALL Scouting information.
