Piedmont Christmas Parade Service Project (Dec 14)

posted Dec 2, 2013, 8:22 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Dec 13, 2013, 4:14 PM ]

For those that sign up (use the sheet in the scout room or email Mr Fitzgerald " " ASAP) we will be meeting on Saturday, December the 14th at 10 AM at the Community Center in Piedmont (1 Main St Piedmont, SC 29673) to aid Whitten Center residents in seeing the parade (some are wheelchair-bound). This will be rain or shine! We will be situated up at the Piedmont Fire Department to watch the parade go by. There will also be free food provided to those that help. If you aren't a part of the parade, your help would be greatly appreciated. We hope to see many scouts there!

PS: There will be a "shopping spree" for the Christmas party gifts for our Miracle Hill Boys Home guests after the parade. The group will be leaving at 3 PM from the Bethesda parking lot.

Troop Christmas Party December 16th

posted Nov 27, 2013, 2:31 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Dec 9, 2013, 6:51 PM ]

In a few weeks we will be having our annual Troop 210 Christmas Party! It will take place on Monday, December the 16th during regular meeting time (7-8 PM). Parents, if possible, should bring food (nothing too big, just things like sandwiches, drinks, etc.). There will be games as well as a gift exchange with guests from the Miracle Hill Boys Home. Every scout attending should bring two gifts of no more than $5 in cost (one for the scout troop gift exchange, one for the Miracle Hill guests). The more people there the better, so we hope to see many scouts there!
PS:There will be a "shopping spree" for the gifts for our Miracle Hill Boys Home guests after the Piedmont Parade on December 14th. The group will be leaving at 3 PM from the Bethesda parking lot.
UPDATE: At the shopping spree (and outside of that if you wish) we will also be purchasing gifts for boys' Christmas wish lists (the boys from the Miracle Hill Boys Home). Those special gifts are not limited to $5, in fact, purchases for that done at the shopping spree will be covered by the troop for up to $30.
