Because of BPU and the District camporee, as well as the excessive cost of Canyon Lake the PLC has decided to cancel the second campout in November. So, for events in November we just have BPU on November 4th, and the District Camporee on the weekend of the 10th:

This Saturday May 28th at 6:15AM Troop 619 will meet up near the Flag Pole at the:
National Memorial Cemetery Of Arizona
23029 N Cave Creek Rd.
Phoenix, AZ. 85024
(Entrance is off Pinnacle Peak Road just off Cave Creek)
Parking is difficult, so plan to arrive early and most will need to park along Pinnacle Peak Road and walk in, due to the number of Scouts from across the valley who attend.
The cemetery provides a limited number of pokers and all of the flags, each to be inserted by Scouts at the head of each grave.
This event usually goes quickly, as so many typically attend.
An email went out to everyone on May 23rd with a Sign Up Genius for a picnic immediately following the flag placing at Lookout Mountain Park.
This Saturday, December 12th will be our troop’s Christmas Party!
Where: Lookout Mountain Park
From Cave Creek Rd, head west on Sharon; north on 18th St which ends at the park.
Bring your own chairs!
An email has gone out from our Troop 619 email with out Sign-Up Sheet for what to bring. Contact Linda or Lisa with any questions.
Scouts bring your bike, skate board, ball, etc.
There will be a gift exchange for those who wish to participate with a value limit of $5. Gifts are typically something a scout can use camping or on other scouting skills.
