On Saturday, May 9 from 1 PM until 4 PM, Bexley will conduct it’s first Safety Education Day and Safety Expo at Cassingham Elementary School.
The Boy Scouts have been asked to sell drinks and snacks at the event. All proceeds from the sale will go into the Scout accounts of the Scouts taking part in the sale.
There are a maximum of 4 Scouts per shift for 2 shifts – please sign up as soon as you are sure you will be able to take part. Note that May 9 is the day before Mothers Day on May 10.
Adults will also be needed for supervision.

Monday, May 11, 7:30 to 9:00 PM: Troop Meeting @ Church
Friday, May 15, 6:00pm – Sunday, May 17 noon: Giant Capture the Flag outing and campout at Chief Logan Scout Reservation
Important: the Scouts have changed the May outing to a Giant Capture the Flag outing and campout. Same weekend (May 15-17).
May outing is now going to be a Giant game of Capture the Flag!
Recipe is for tent camping and Scout skills, mixed in with FUN.
We’ll be going to Chief Logan Scout Reservation — a beautiful property due South past Chillicothe.
As usual, travel back and forth in Class A uniforms and bring other clothes appropriate to the weather. (Extra warm layers for morning and late evening. Rain gear. Spare wool socks. No cotton. Water bottle and day pack to carry during the adventure!) We will be tent camping and outside all weekend. Scouts share tents and can arrange tent mates with their patrol.
We will cook in patrols. Siblings will be part of the Adult Patrol, and we are looking for an Adult Patrol Chef!
Leave from Bexley United Methodist Church at 6 pm on Friday
Cost will be $15 per attendee for both Scouts and Adults.
Return to Church around Noon on Sunday.
*Note: we ask that you sign up at least a week in advance. If you have to cancel during the last week, we respectfully ask that you still pay for the outing. By this time, the Troop has incurred the per-attendee cost of the location and your fellow Scouts have purchased food.
Monday, May 18, 7:30 to 9:00 PM: Troop Meeting and Troop Committee Meeting @ Church. Troop Committee is in Room 5
Monday, May 25: No Meeting (no school in Bexley)
Wednesday, May 27: Bexley – last day of school
And don’t forget: Summer Camp in June and Ropes Course Outing in July!
