WEBELOS Overnighter! November 18-19

The Boy Scouts of Troop 725 have planned an exciting weekend full of events:  fishing and learning the patrol method and all things Boy Scouts for WEBELOS only.  The location of the event is Gemini Springs, 37 Dirksen Drive, DeBary, FL 32713.  For planning purposes, we need confirmation of your Webelos attendance and your attendance by Nov. 13th..  Capacity is limited. Please call, text or email me so that we can have enough supplies:  386-675-9323 or

Please bring:  $12/person for your meals and program supplies*, a CAN OF SOUP (their contribution to Friday night dinner), Camping Gear (tent, sleeping bag, Pack/uniform shirt, mess kit, water bottle/cup, hat, sunscreen, toiletries), fishing poles & tackle and Scout spirit.
*Your Webelos Leader/Assistant Unit Leader will collect money by or before November 17th to register your unit’s Webelos campers as a unit at the November Round Table.

Friends of Scouting

In every recharter packet is a Friends of Scouting commitment form.  Many troops have fall courts of honor.  Schedule an FOS presentation for it and get a jump on 2017. Donations paid in 2016 can be deducted from 2016 taxes.
Exciting New benefit for units: Every unit that reaches or exceeds its goal (a little higher than last year’s pledges), and has pledges paid at or above the goal amount by June 30, 2017, will receive 10% of the collected amount into their Unit Account! This is the first time ever (that I’m aware of) that a portion of the FOS dollars raised will stay will the unit. This is another reason to schedule your best and earliest meeting date. It will give everyone a chance to pay his or her pledges before 6/30. If you have a November COH and would like an FOS presentation, please contact Rosellen
