October 17: Biking in Forest Park
Five families met up at the Upper Muny parking lot to practice biking skills and talk about bike safety. After that, the bigger Navigators and their parents rode the loop trail around Forest Park, with a stop at the Visitor’s Center for lunch. The smaller Navigators played with some of the wonderful areas of Forest Park.

Some photos are available on Facebook.
November 7: Puppet Theater and Service

We will attend Bob Kramer’s Marionnettes at 10 am and then go to a member family’s house for a service project for Winter Outreach. Haley Pepper is organizing the Puppet Show, and Mel Johnson is organizing the Winter Outreach service project (please see the flyer for information about what you can donate in advance and at the day of service).
Here’s part of an update on the Winter Outreach project from Melissa Johnson, the organiszer:

We’ve had a great response at the Society, with almost 200 granola bars donated!  We’ve also received several other items including:  tuna, nuts, applesauce, and cough drops.  If you’re collecting items on your own, or still plan to buy some things, I ask that you focus on the other items on the updated flyer (attached).

We will meet at Haley’s parents house on Saturday, November 7th after the Bob Kramer’s Marionnettes outing (which is very close in proximity) to assemble the bags of goodies.  The goal for each bag is to include at least 2 sweet snacks, 2 salty snacks, 1 pack of tissues, 1 lip balm, and some cough drops.  We hope to see everyone there!

The puppet show will cost $10/adult and $8/child. Please RSVP to if you plan to attend (there will be an RSVP deadline, but we don’t know the date yet).

General Meetings
October 25

Our October General Meeting will be at 9:45 am on October 25 at the Ethical Society. We will learning lashings to build a simple shelter in order to earn our Pioneering badges. We will have more details next week, but please bring long twigs and sticks if you can (assuming the weather is good – if weather forces us inside, we will use less messy alternatives).

We will build on the service project outing in November with a service project morning. Please meet at 9:45 at the Ethical Society to help clean up around the Society.
