You may have missed a great meeting
Tonight chapter 15 Wamblee, met at 7 pm to 9 pm. The boys came early and stayed late. There were 21 boys who were in attendance and 8 adults. This is a record for our chapter. The subject was on service done by john Taylor. John also played a couple of games with all the boys. He reviewed his ideas that he does for service and shared them with everyone there. Eric Nielson his advisor shared with us ideas on service projects. Then John Taylor introduced his guest speaker David Munford. David talked about how we can all do service every day. He also demonstrated a homemade flute. He has the plans available for 1.50 if you are interested. David reviewed art work that he has done for the Salt lake council. He had a display of his work with him. Thank you Dave for coming.
Everyone agreed to have an ongoing service project from now until December. A food drive will be going on and john Taylor was put in charge of the project. The chapter decided to collect food for the next 3 months and turn the food in to the food bank just before Christmas.

In all it was a great meeting. Everyone had a great time. We are all proud of the events that we are undertaking in our chapter. We would like to ask Gary Robinson if he would add this info to the Gem and if you would mention that we would like the district to help out with the food drive each month. It only takes a few cans to make a difference from each of us. Thank you Gary.
This year�s group of boys are fantastic and we are starting off on the right path.
Thank you to everyone who has helped our chapter grow over the years. The results are great.
