This September marks the tenth anniversary of the founding of Boy Scout Troop 364, based at Adat Shalom Synagogue 29901 Middlebelt Rd Farmington Hills, MI 48334. To celebrate, the boys (along with their little brothers in Cub Scout Troop 613 and their sisters in Girl Scout Troop 71613) have set a goal of bringing 50 new families into Scouting. Along with publicity efforts occurring in Hebrew school classrooms throughout Metro Detroit, the Scouts and their families have lined up an exciting array of events to attract potential new members:
Sunday, September 8th, from 9 a.m. to Noon, the EAA Flight Club will be offering “Young Eagle” flights to any interested youth and their families. Don’t miss this chance to take a 15-20 minute trip into the clouds! Participants will receive a commemorative patch and flight log.
Saturday, September 15th at 11:00 a.m., will be an “all hands on deck” volunteer opportunity as they build a sukkah for the residents at JARC Home, followed by a cook-out at Adat Shalom to kick-off the new Scouting year.
And speaking of sukkot…
Saturday, September 21st both the Boy and Girl Scouts will be meeting for Havdallah in the Adat Shalom, followed by an overnight camp-out in the sukkah!
And that’s just September!
Committed to providing high-quality opportunities for service, learning and fun to boys and girls in 1st through 12th grades, the Jewish Boy and Girl Scout troops meet weekly on Sunday afternoons and are volunteer led and observant of Sabbath and dietary laws. Past activities have included the Walk for Israel, camping at Cole Canoe Base, field trips galore and LOTS of merit badges!
