The annual pancake breakfast is Sunday, February 23rdThis is an all-hands event - all Scouts are expected to participate.  At our meeting on Tuesday, our scouts will  develop a sign up sheet to create a schedule.   Cooks and first shift servers will need to be at Calvary at 8:00 a.m.  We will need a minimum of 6 - 8 Scouts. The remainder of the Scouts will need to arrive at 9:30 to set up tables and get set for the second seating immediately after the end of the 9:00 service in Hannaford Hall.  The biggest seating is usually after the 11:00 service.   All Scouts should wear their Class A uniform and bring a smile.  For those of you not familiar with the event, the Scouts make pancakes and sausage, wait tables and act as bus boys for members of the Church.   This is an opportunity for us to thank the Church for all that they do for our Troop.  We also accept donations at this event and we usually receive a good amount of money to help with Troop expenses.
