Hi Beaver Families,
We hope you enjoyed making Apple Pies with us tonight. Beavers learned about safety with knives and to cut fruit with a plastic knife. They did very well.
I know it seems like a lot of fundraising in fall, but this builds up the money for our group to do fun activities at a discount for the rest of the year. The supplies and site fees for our special activities and events are purchased primarily with funds raised from popcorn, apple day and bottle drives. Without these activities, we would be VERY limited in what we can do. Thank you for helping out.
Instructions for little apple pies
If you are not baking it tonight, cover with plastic wrap and REFRIGERATE the pie.
Please REMOVE the paper and tape from the pie before baking, and if your child put a tin on TOP of the pie please remove that too before baking. MAKE SURE there is a little hole cut in the top of the pie to let steam escape.
Bake it in a 350degree oven, on a baking sheet, for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling.
COOL until safe to eat.
Now, reminders for this week:
Apple day is this Saturday October 15. You have all got a scheduled time.
POPCORN DEADLINE is: Tuesday October 18. Go to our meeting place to drop off your complete Popcorn envelopes with Scouter Tim at 7pm on Tuesday October 18.
CAMPFIRE is: Wednesday October 19. I will contact wait-listed parents on saturday night to confirm if you are able to sign up. We have to wait list because we do not have enough registered scouters. Please consider joining our team even as a part-time scouter to help out with special events.
NO BEAVERS October 20 because of campfire. The hall will be dark and closed.
Beavers Halloween Party October 27!!! Wear a costume. It will be fun.
After Apple Day, there is one more fundraising event for fall. It is a bottle drive on November 5. Just like Apple Day, beavers and parents will be expected to sign up to help out for 1 hour. I will send a sign-up sheet early next week.
