Pancake Breakfast

This is our big fundraiser to raise funds for our activities and for this year in particular to help offset the cost of our 2008 high adventure trip to Colorado. All scouts will be given an initial 20 tickets to sell for the breakfast. Some of the tickets were given out as swim night; the others will be passed out at the November 29 troop meeting. We will mail out the tickets to any scouts still needing them after the meeting.

Scouts who will be attending the high adventure 2008 trip must sell at least 20 tickets (or have their family buy the tickets or the unsold portion). The sale of the 20 tickets plus any other ticket sales above the original 20 will result in a dollar for dollar reduction in the cost of the high adventure trip!

Scouts can get as many tickets to sell as they want. See Dave Kirchner if you need more tickets. There will be ticket sale prizes for all scouts, regardless if they go on the high adventure trip or not! There will be some great prizes (think of something sharp and personally engraved) for scouts who sell the most, second and third amount of tickets. For all the other scouts who sold any tickets at all, there will be a drawing of 3 additional great prizes!


We will need full troop participation to be successful. Venture scouts need to be at the parish center at 6:00 AM on January 13. Venture scouts should wear a Troop 4 t-shirt. The Ventures will be cooking, doing the hall setup work, and some preliminary cleanup work. We are asking the Ventures to work from 6:00 AM until about 1:00 PM. All other scouts need to be at the parish center at 8:00 AM with full uniforms (no troop t-shirts). These scouts will be waiting on tables and working with the public with games, displays, etc. Plan to work until about 2:00 PM. If a scout can only do part of the hours, that’s great – we need all the help we can get to make the breakfast a success. For all who have never participated in the pancake breakfast before – it’s a great experience and lots of fun!
