Like to discuss going forward and buying jackets for the Group:  http://manage.promobullit.com/682/952329a3c763cc04d6c8744d1a69a385/en/product/basket-791863.html.  Red and white at $5 each plus tax.  Put logo and/or Scouts.ca on jacket = cheap advertising and useful gear!  Need to act a bit quickly - would need every member's sizing - fall/spring jacket. (xs-xxl)

Our Lady of Lourdes School - available for outdoor program when we get back to it.  Other locations?
