Blue & Gold Banquet Feb 28


Hello 399 parents,

Tuesday, February 28 is our Blue & Gold banquet. Here’s what you need to know.

  • We’ll be starting at 6:30 p.m. to allow enough time for everything we have lined up.
  • We’re asking every family to bring an appetizer (at least 15 servings) representing one of our featured countries: Germany, China/Taiwan, Egypt, India, Switzerland , Thailand, Mexico, and Canada. Or, choose a country not on this list, if you have a favorite!
  • Each Cub Scout will be asked to present one interesting fact about the country his appetizer represents.
  • Please RSVP with your appetizer choice by Tuesday, February 21 so we can ensure we have a diverse spread!

At last night’s committee meeting, we brainstormed some appetizer ideas. For Germany, brats or pretzels; for Switzerland, swiss cheese or chocolate; for China, egg rolls or meat kabobs; for Mexico, layered dip or chips and salsa; for Canada, Tim Horton’s doughnuts. Feel free to get creative with this!

Please make every effort to attend the banquet. We’ll be discussing some important upcoming events, hosting some Simon Kenton Council visitors, and holding a crossover ceremony. You won’t want to miss it!

At next week’s den meetings (Feb 14), we’ll be handing out Blue & Gold flyers as well. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
