Well--we've kicked off a wonderful Scout program. Troop and Pack food pantry. With the need for food at our pantry, the Scouts have seen the need and have a solution, to be of help. I'm glad to appoint Len Dubois as the Chairman of this worthwhile event.With all of the families in Blackford who are unemployeed and underemployed, the need is great. The Muncie Star reported that 29% of the children in Blackford are hungery. I find that unexceptable, when we have such recources. I'm asking that you drop off canned  or  boxeed goods at the Scout meetings on Tuesday evening. I will also have a box for food stuffs at my office. (209 w. washington) We will also take money ( how about your spare change) We   MUST  get this problem under control. Of all the wonderful things I've been envolved with in Scouting, this may very well be the most important.  Pat Jr. and Sheila are in agreement with me, and will help get this into high gear.  GREAT NEWS-- the 2 ORR boys and the 2 HOLST boys, are SUPER SCOUTS, they have been helping the local food pantry, a couple days a week, without any fanfair..we need to pat them on the back, and tell them how proud we are of them. Now that is SCOUTING in action. Shelia signed up some more Cub Scouts, Tuesday evening--lets give her a big hand. We do need some more Cub Scouts, ask your friends and neighbors, if they know of a boy who would like to have fun and learn at the same time. We have room for many more. Please put the SCOUTfood pantry at the top of your list. We can make a difference.. Yours in Scouting,  PAT SR. Chairman and Commissioner

Am I ever proud of the Scouts and their leaders, who attended Boy Scout Summer Camp.I was able to spend a day, with the troop, and was I ever proud. The adult leaders, who attended were the best ever, we can Thank the good Lord for the men who are guiding our Scouts, it's the best I've ever seen. The Scouts earned merit badges, and had one heck of a good time, with the programs, that camp offered. We are now getting ready for a new school year, and all of the events forthcomming. I know you will give Scouting 100%, and remember our Scouts always deserve the very best. Yours in Scouting  Patrick O'Hern Sr. Commissioner and Chairman

THANK YOU to all of the adults and helpers at Cub Day Camp. We had a wonderful turn-out and the activities were top notch. It really touches my heart, that we are doing such a great job, for our Scouts. Special THANKS to Pat Jr. and all the Scouts who were the hosts for the event. And a Really Special THANKS to Sheila for all that she did. I'm not sure but I don't think we could do without her. Pat Sr. Commissioner and Chairman.

With the Scouts and Adults in Cub Pack 500, and Boy Scout Troop 500, we are at least 100 strong. I'm asking all Scouts and all adults, to invite a young person (scout age) to attend one of our meetings. I believe if a new Scout aged boy were to see what we do, most of them would want to be involved. If he is impovershed, we have ways to get him a book and uniform. Lets get behind this, and start asking them to come. Also remember Tuesday is uniform day. I'm asking all youth and adults (if possible ) to wear their uniform all day on Tuesday.  By the way , I want to THANK all of you who attended Scout Sunday at Trinity  Church.  Pat Sr. Commissioner and Chairman
