A Good Turn for the Rotary Club

The Rotary club was using a drone this weekend to take aerial photos of Camp Rotary in Monarch. The drone crashed and they need some Scouts to help find it this weekend.

Camp Rotary is our annual location of the Lewis and Clark District Klondike Derby.  The Rotary Club of Great Falls has been very generous to us over the years, giving us access to the camp at greatly reduced rates.

We know the general area where the drone crashed, but need to organize a search party to locate and retrieve the device.  The Club will spring for lunch for any Scouts that can help out.  Time spent, including travel time, can count towards service hours needed for rank advancement (talk to your Scoutmaster first, of course!)

Please message Aaron (aaron@weissman.com, 868-8982) if you can meet at Camp Rotary on Sunday mid-morning to help.

Fall Camporee

Good news……we have a site for Fall Camporee.
I will post directions later as I get them, but it will be on a private ranch near Wolf Creek Bridge. That is by the Holter Lake turnoff

The canoe races are a go and the good news is we will not need to bring canoes. They will be provided by Prickly Pear District and they will provide all needed lifeguards. (three) If you have a favorite life vest or paddle then by all means bring it. As I see it the race will be a 100 yard dash to a turn then 100 back……up stream then down.

Your Blood Needed!

The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to help offset a seasonal decline in donations and prevent a shortage this summer by giving blood. 

 

During June, July and August, there are about two fewer donors than needed at each Red Cross blood drive. This can add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations during the summer. Many schools that host blood drives are out of session, and vacation schedules can make regular donors less available – both contributing to the seasonal decline.

 

 

Donors of all blood types – especially those with types AB, O negative, A negative and B negative – are needed to help ensure blood products are available to hospital patients this summer. Type AB donors have the universal plasma type, which can be given to patients of all blood types. Plasma helps maintain blood pressure and supplies critical proteins for clotting immunity. It is often needed for burn, trauma and cancer patients.

 

 

To make an appointment to give blood at the leaders save lives blood drive on July 22nd from 8 am – 2:30 pm at the Redcross blood center (1300 28th Street South) call The American Red Cross at 403-0956 or signup online at http://www.redcrossblood.org zip code 59405. All presenting donors will receive a special American Red Cross tshirt.
