February 19-21: Cabin Camping
We will be winter cabin camping at Babler State Park. Bob Heck and the rest of the Council have been making plans for the weekend, and we have lots of ideas and activities:

The exact combination of activities will depend on actual weather conditions and the group’s interest.

Babler has heated cabins with attached bathrooms. We plan to sleep up to 16 people per cabin (bring your sleeping bags or other linen), and we will cook our own food. We will be sharing some facilities with a teen group.

The cost will be $12/person/night, plus cost for meals. Our Treasurer, Bob Heck, will calculate the final amount for each family at the event.

Note: If you want to join us and have difficulty with the financial contribution, please let us know so that we can try to help.

Please let us know if you are planning to join us.

Please see the flyer for more details.

March 19(?): Religious Community
We have early plans to visit a local religious community for the Community badge. In case our lead falls through, please let us know if you have a connection with an interesting local religious community that would welcome us to learn about them.

General Meetings
February 14
We were going to build kites this morning, but winter weather forced the Ethical Society to close its operations for the morning.

First Sunday Lunch – March 6
The Navigators are hosting the First Sunday Lunch for the Ethical Society on March 6. The food will be served after the Platform, around noon, but we will need to be ready for the onslaught.

We will need families to cook in the Ethical Society kitchen that morning, but we will need others to purchase supplies in advance and do any necessary early food prep.

We have discussed several ideas about what we could serve (pancakes, scrambled eggs, lunch casserole, etc.), but the decision isn’t final yet. The menu and other planning will be an important topic of conversation at the February General Meeting and Outing.

Ellen Wilson will be leading this effort for us. Please let us and Ellen know when and if you are able to help with cooking, purchasing, cleaning, etc.

March Council Meeting
Our next Council meeting is scheduled for 9:30 am on March 13 in the Nursery School Green Room. All are welcome to observe and comment.
