The readers of this blog know that the Kiwanis Club of Arlington is the chartering organization of Troop 5. Their annual fundraiser is a big pancake breakfast on the last Saturday in February. The troop always sends a large contingent to work the breakfast. Between the High School Key Clubs, Builders Clubs, and the Kiwanians, this fundraiser runs very smoothly.
The objective of the Little Troop 5 at this event is to help when asked. Being the only group with a uniform, we are very visible and are asked to help in the kitchen and the dining room.
I spent most of my time just wandering around, visiting with people about the troop, and scouting in general. Standing around with a coffee cup in my hand in scout uniform is something I do very well.
I also selfishly look forward to the two grand boys showing up for the breakfast. It was Nolan’s first.
