For the benefit of our new Scouts and parents, and as a reminder to our other members, we modify our schedule of meetings and events during the months of summer when Hillsborough County public schools are on summer break. We meet every other week for a social time in an informal setting. These optional meetings are held on the second floor of the Magnolia Building, taking full advantage of the various games and activities there. If there is a need for an informal meeting to discuss an upcoming event, one of the classrooms can be employed for this purpose. Here are the dates for our summer meetings:
- June 13
- July 11
- Aug. 1
- Aug. 8
On June 27, we will meet at the home of Sahaj and Saral Kumar, 86 Ladoga Avenue on Davis Islands. The Kumar have generously offered their home for this event. Hyde Park United Methodist will begin Vacation Bible School on that day and the entire campus will be used for that purpose. Please look for an eVite, coming shortly, to R.S.V.P. and let the Kumars know how many to plan for.
Magnolia Building Changes
During the summer months, the church will be renovating the first floor of the Magnolia Building in preparation for a new worship service that begins in September. Because of this construction, the ground floor will not be available for meetings and other events. The construction should be completed prior to resumption of our normal schedule and we will continue to use this space next year.
It’s going to be a great summer with many opportunities for Scout spirit and fun. Make sure you’re there!
