BOY SCOUT TROUP 991 - OUTDOOR ADVENTURES!
Despite the cold and the holidays, we still managed to have a month loaded with fun.  Aside from camping at Camp Rock Enon in the Shenandoahs where we honed our outdoor and leadership skills, we also jumped into the water with an introduction to SCUBA.  This underwater event was amazing; we learned and experienced the remarkable ability to dive underwater – what a blast!  This coming month, our activities will include not just camping, skiing, snow tubing and much more…

Come join us - Boy Scouts: 6th – 12th grade boys. 
Visit us Wednesday nights - 7:30PM @ Ravensworth Elementary.

Troop 991 is boy led, sponsored by the Ravensworth Elementary PTA and lives and scouts in your neighborhood!  Learn more about us at: http://www.troop991.com/

Contact Scoutmaster Bill Mitchell @ 703-321-8072 or mitchwt@cox.net if you are interested… Or come by and see for yourself what you’re missing!

BOX TOP COMPETITION
Collecting Box Tops is an easy way to help our school earn money. As an incentive for bringing in Box Tops we are having a Box Top Competition! The competition will be in 3-month increments running September-November, December-February and March-May. At the end of each period, the class with the most Box Tops will win a prize! In addition, the class with the most Box Tops for the entire year will win a party at the end of the year. Send your Box Tops in labeled with your teacher's name and grade so that your class gets credit! There is a collection box in the lobby. There is a Box Top competition poster in the cafeteria, check often to see if your class is in the lead!
