May 2017

Three of the families who helped man the Bake Sale table this year.
On May 12, we held our sixth annual Bake Sale. We held it at the Walmart on Stadium and raised $436.52. This money will support our group for the upcoming year, paying for such things as our annual family picnic, annual hay ride, and Quest Club and will help offset the cost of our out-of-town field trip to be held early next year. Thirteen of our families helped out this year by baking goods and/or manning our sales table. Thank you!

On May 22, our Quest Club held a presentation meeting. Five members gave presentations on badges they are earning or have earned. This gave members the opportunity to practice speaking publicly and share knowledge with their friends. The badge topics presented included bird watching and Minecraft. Members also discussed ideas for the next group event.

February 2017

Some of the crew that came to the City Museum.
On February 24, our group headed to the City Museum in St. Louis for a fun-filled day. The festivities included: cave exploring, rides down big slides, climbing, a show, and plenty of interesting things to see. As the day wound down, the children still had smiles and the parents were smiling from exhaustion. Thank you to all the group members for making this field trip possible. It was an incredible experience for everyone!

Some members' edible art.
On February 28, our Quest Club held a group event at park day. The subject was "edible art." Members of Quest Club created and shared wonderful pieces of art they had created using food. Everyone was invited to create their own edible art pies with fruit and candies provided by Quest Club.
