We’ve been able to sneak in a few Boy Scout pancake breakfasts and chili suppers for fundraisers for the troop, but scheduling has been difficult because of Covie. We have adapted our annual Trunk-or-Treat to a drive-through and that’s been very successful.

Golden Key Club is an organization for retired men and women who like to have Fun, Fellowship and good Food. They meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 12:00 noon for a catered meal ranging in price from $5.00 to $10.00. After the meal they have a short business meeting followed by enjoyable entertainment. Please call the church office for reservations or for more information.
Golden Key Club began in 1973 when two ladies saw a need for older adults to meet together, for spiritual growth and social interaction. So, 46 years later they are still going strong and loving it. Feel free to join them! If you don’t care to come for the meal but would like to hear the program, come ahead at 1:00 – they’ll welcome you!
On February 1, 2019, the scouting program decided to accept girls and the Boy Scouts of America changed its name from Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA.
Now Cub Scouting can combine boys and girls dens or have separate dens where they share hands on learning and achievement.
The boys and girls of Scouts BSA still experience the traditional scouting involvement as before. Boy and girl troops can be linked together in the same Charter Organization where they have separate leadership and can meet at the same location.
The Ridge has supported our troop and pack 269 for 75 years in March. We hope to have a 75th anniversary open house later this summer.
Troop 269 now has a total of 302 Eagle Scouts.
Troop leaders, volunteers, and families dedicate their time and talents continuing to make this a quality program. The success of scouting depends on our volunteers who serve in a variety of leadership roles so young people may benefit from our scouting ministry.
