Eat spaghetti and help Scouts

The troop is raising money for two 2002 projects: hiking the Chilkoot Trail next summer; and participating in Frostbite Challenge, a weekend in White Pass during March.

Volunteer Web site now open

Ryan Murphy has created a new Web site, Volunteer programs and individual volunteers are encouraged to visit the site and take advantage of the opportunity to have a special page built for a volunteer program at no cost. The page will be designed to inform the community of the volunteer program, and let people know how they can help. Pages can include photos, logos and text.

The site also will be used to generate money to support local volunteer programs. Individuals can purchase online ads for items such as cars, boats, garage sales and anything else. Money from these ads will be donated. Visit for more information.
