But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Psalm 1:2-3

Scouting News

Pack and Troop 315 participated in the Killbuck District Fall Family Campout held at the Holmes County Fairgrounds September 23, 24, and 25th. Over 75 Scouts attended from many packs and troops all a cross Wayne and Holmes County. It was a fun filled event which included an archery and BB gun range, making ice cream, building catapults for launching marshmallows, science experiments, fun and games, and much more. Thank you to all who made the camping trip possible for our kids and thanks for the support from Killbuck UMC.

October is Popcorn month for Scouts. We will be selling popcorn during the month. Popcorn sales account for 75% of our yearly budget allowing us to continue to have Fun with a Purpose. This money pays for our needed supplies, awards, camping trips, community service projects and much more. Please support Pack 315 and Troop 315 by purchasing some delicious popcorn! There will be order forms at the church.

Lastly, during the month of October we are "Scouting for Food" and are having a food drive to collect canned goods or other non perishable goods for the Love Center. On October 22nd our scouts will be manning the doors in front of Wal-Mart as well to collect food. Last year’s drive was very successful and we would like to continue that again this year and help our community.
