a. Boy Scouts Buddy Gilbert

The Scouts have been a part of Brotherhood as a sponsoring member for longer than anyone can remember. We have a new Scout Master, Rich Champion. Rich has been Scout Master for about six months. The financial support from Brotherhood is very much appreciated. He also thanks Buddy, who really does advocate Scouting. We have been involved in several service projects. The weekly meetings are on Monday nights. The Scouts have attended several events with other Scout troops. Over twenty merit badges were awarded and two of our Scouts attained Eagle. We have had six boys age out of the troop. We need to fill that gap. Aaron Noble asked Vicery Meadow what they needed. Aaron built a picket fence around their vegetable garden. Stephen Shore said that the troop will work on their religious matters and the Scout Shabbat is on December 9-10, 2011.

6. New Business

Do we want to work on the capital campaign? It is a three year campaign. Do we contribute something from our reserves or from current earnings? Do we have a special fundraising event? If the current membership campaign is successful, then that would help. They also need volunteers. There was a show of hands of how many people wanted to participate in the capital campaign. It was unanimous. Buz moved that we contribute a lump sum of $25,000 from reserves with the contingency that it be held in trust and be refunded if the campaign is not successful. Frosty seconded and the motion was tabled unanimously for further discussion and a vote at the December meeting.

7. Old Business
