I have just been informed that Eagle Scout Robert
Lewis Bailey passed away this past Sunday. Robert (Bob) was a member of
Troop 54 during the 1950’s and 1960’s. He received his Eagle Scout rank
and badge in 1964 from Troop 54.
Robert was the son of Scoutmaster Kenneth Bailey,
and has many ties to Scouting in our District. Lynda Hicks of T64 is his
sister; his brother in law is Robert Hick, also of T64, and Eagle
Scouts Dalton Hicks and Collin Hicks, also of T64 are his nephews. Son J
Bailey and Grandson Rowen both are members of Troop 111, while
son-in-law Gabe Cole and Grandson Jacob are members of Troop 10.
Services will be held on Saturday 5 October 2019
at First Baptist Church 12125 71st St. E. Parrish, FL 34219, service
will start at 11:00 A.M.
As many of you know CubEx is the councils biggest
event focused solely on cub scouts. This event is designed to be big,
extravagant, and completely over the top. We do this for the sole reason
of creating a buzz with new cub scouts, we want them to walk away
smiling and talking about scouts. I know some units have not attended
CubEx before or haven’t attend in a number of years; give it a try this
year and see how much fun it can be for your unit.
This year’s Cubex will be a bring a buddy event. This is a great
way to get new youth recruited into your pack. Many youth will join
after attending and seeing how exciting scouting is.
Scouts BSA and Venture Crews don’t think we forgot
about you, we are always looking for help staffing an event of this
size. Staffing this event will get you a free t-shit and food for the
weekend along with earning service hours. You will receive a letter
verifying you have received 22 service hours, these can be given to your
school and used towards your graduation requirement. Come on out, have a
blast, get a free shirt and make some new friends.

If you have any questions about attending or staffing this event please email Bruce Hassy.
I look forward to seeing you at CubEx!

It’s hard to believe a new school year has started and that Fall is just around the corner! (looking forward to the dryer & cooler weather!!)
Crime Stoppers of Manatee County is pleased to announce that we will again partner with the DeSoto Square Mall for this year’s 16th Annual Halloween Safe Kids Night. The event will be held on Halloween, Thursday October 31st, 2019 from 5:30pm – 8:30pm at the DeSoto Square Mall in Bradenton. The event is free for the public to attend and there will be plenty of fun and candy for the whole family. Information regarding the event will soon be posted on our website – www.ManateeCrimeStoppers.com and on our Facebook Page.
This well established event consistently attracts over 3000 children & families. This year’s event will be our 4th year at the DeSoto Square Mall. We anticipate another huge turnout at this centralized venue with businesses in addition to community organizations. Businesses and organizations who work with children & families do not want to miss this opportunity for positive exposure and marketing.
This event provides children and families with a safe alternative for “Trick or Treating”. Rather than going door to door, families can visit the DeSoto Square Mall and enjoy an enhanced Halloween experience. Crime Stoppers is providing a venue with plenty of supervision, games, activities, and candy while also promoting public safety & community services available to families.
Although the event is over a month away, the space made available for the event at the DeSoto Square Mall, provides more room for businesses, community groups, churches, civic organizations & government agencies to participate as a “Booth Host” or event partner. Manatee Crime Stoppers is actively seeking additional booth hosts and event partners at this time. Participation as a “Booth Host” is free to non-profit, civic, community and religious organizations.
Any organization with questions is encouraged to contact Manatee Crime Stoppers via email at info@ManateeCrimeStoppers.com or by calling the Manatee Crime Stoppers administrative line at 792-2732.
There will be an organizational meeting for all organizations participating in the 2019 event. The meeting will be at the DeSoto Square Mall Food Court on Tuesday 9/10/2019 @ 4:30pm. Organizations seeking more information and who are considering participation are also welcome to attend.
Thanks and we hope you will join us for another great event!
