Keith Hasbrouck has been putting together a CPR class for interested Scout leaders this Saturday in the basement of the Scout Office. There are only 6 available slots left for this class and we will accept people on a first come – first serve basis. Please email Keith Hasbrouck at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 799-4498 to reserve your spot. The class will run from 10am until roughly 1pm on Saturday, February 4th. The cost is $5 per person.
Scout week is coming! As part of our celebration of Scouting’s 102nd birthday, we will be commemorating Scout Sunday on February 5 and Scout Shabbat on February 11.
P.R.A.Y. and the Jewish Committee on Scouting have put together a beautiful pair of patches to mark Scout Shabbat and Scout Sunday. To earn the patches, simply attend religious services in your Scout uniform.
As the Great Falls Jewish Community will not be meeting in February, Scouts wishing to earn the Scout Shabbat patch should attend those services as noted at aitzchaim.com.
Our council has put together a great resource in its 2012 Program Guide! This useful resource has information on Statewide Scouting activities happening all year!

Thank you to all the Scouts and Scouters that made our snow sports merit badge/belt loop days at Showdown into a rousing success! This event was well attended and everyone seemed to have a good time.
For those Boy Scouts that are finalizing their paperwork for the Snow Sports Merit Badge, Mr. Weissman and Dr. Jennings will hold a final classroom session on Tuesday, February 7 at 6:30 p.m., at the LDS Stake Center at 1015 15th Ave S. This classroom session will be held concurrently with the Boy Scout Roundtable.
During that final session, we will be going over requirements 1-4 for the merit badge (first aid, safety, avalanche awareness, etc.). We will be prepared to sign blue cards for Scouts that have finished all merit badge requirements that this classroom session.
