Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — It is that time of year again for the Barker Boy Scout Community Birthday Calendar sales. First, the Barker Scouts want to thank all the advertisers and community members who have supported the troop in the past and ask for your support once more. The boys have been out selling the calendars door to door but again, because the troop is too small to cover the whole area, we need your help. The last day to place an order will Saturday. If a scout has not made it to your house yet, please call Joan Lantinen at 795-3020 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase your calendar. She will contact you and get all the information needed to process your order.
Also, they have three boys completing scouting and leaving the troop this year; Joey Hinton and Michael Schian are finishing up their Eagle Scout requirements and Michael Lantinen is now officially an Eagle Scout. Look around town at their projects and congratulate them on their achievements. Welcome to the new scouts that will be moving up from the Cub Scout pack.
