SCOUTING SMOKE SIGNALS

Portage Creek Camp Association’s “2nd BI-ANNUAL MORE THAN AWLSOME HUMONGUS WAYNEDALE-WIDE GARAGE SALE” was held on Friday, September 6, 2002 and Saturday, September 7, 2002 at the Scout Cabin, corner of Ardmore Avenue and Lower Huntington Road. We want to thank everyone who donated items for our sale and we want to thank everyone who stopped by and purchased some of our bargain treasures. Thank you Waynedalers for supporting Portage Creek Camp Association who sponsors Troop 44, which is YOUR troop. It takes the cooperation of our whole village to raise our youth.

In the last Smoke Signals I goofed and put the wrong dates for the Johnny Appleseed Festival. I’ll try it again: Jerry Lloyd, Scoutmaster of Troop 38 and Jim Fox, Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 38 have informed me that Troop 38, sponsored by Calvary United Methodist Church, will again be making corn bread in Dutch ovens at the Johnny Appleseed Festival Saturday, September 21 and 22, 2002. This is an annual fundraiser for the Troop. They will be working with the Old Settlers group. I understand that vegetable soup or bean soup will be available along with the corn bread. Stop in and enjoy some of the best Dutch oven corn bread you’ve ever tasted. While you’re there talk to the boys and leaders about Scouting.

Portage Creek Camp Association made the announcement that they would like to restart Cub Scout Pack 3044. The pack was once sponsored by or met at Maplewood School. The Association now has the Cub Scout Pack 3044 flags from Maplewood School. If you, or your boy, are interested in joining Pack 3044 then contact Jack Shepard, Walt Pressler, or Ray McCune. Come on down to the regular Boy Scout meetings at 7pm on Monday nights and talk to the leaders). We are in need of concerned parents, dedicated leaders and interested boys for both our Boy Scout Troop and the Cub Pack. Cub Scout meetings will be held at the Scout Cabin on a weekday (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday) whichever is agreed upon by the leaders-to-be.

Portage Creek Camp Association has been in contact with members of the old Boy Scout High Adventure Explorer Post 2044. They have expressed interest in rechartering the Post and holding their weekly meetings at the Scout Cabin. The Post is for Boys and Girls in the 14 to 21 year age group. Anyone interested in joining or becoming a leader of Post 2044, please get in touch with Portage Creek Camp Association any Monday night at the cabin between 7pm and 8:30pm.

Girl Scout Troop #850 will be holding a yard/garage sale from 9am to 5pm, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September 12, 13, and 14, 2002 at 2803 Westview Avenue (off Brooklyn Avenue close to the railroad crossing). Articles available: a gas lawnmower, 2 antique cedar chests, 2 beveled mirrors, 2 coffee tables, Robi grass edger, microwave oven, Kenwood Stereo, clothes, baby clothes, table with matching chairs, full size bed frame, and lots of toys. $2-Bag Sale on last day of sale.

Boy Scout Troop 44 is looking for good used uniforms. Are you, or your boy, finished with scouting? Do you have some old uniforms or uniform parts (belt, shirt, pants, socks – either in Boys sizes or Adult sizes) laying around in dresser drawers or hanging in the back of a closet? Please donate these items to us. We have boys and adults in need of uniforms right now. Call Scoutmaster Jack Shepard at 436-2422 for pickup, or drop the items off at THE WAYNEDALE NEWS, 2700 Lower Huntington Road. Items donated are tax deductible.
