hysical items have been met.
Still, many want to do something more.
Clapper Publishing has organized a nation-wide crusade,
“The Angel Project” is asking Americans and anyone worldwide to make an
angel in memory of the victims of our nation's tragedy.
In December, angels will be hand-delivered by Clapper Publishing
staff and volunteers to New York City for a special The Angel Project
memorial service. Angels will
also be delivered by volunteers to the crash sites in Pennsylvania and
The following information was taken directly from their
site at http://www.theangelproject.com/
"Through The Angel Project, people can pay
tribute to those who have died and, by creating something with their own
hands, help themselves heal from this heartache, too," said Marie
Clapper, president of Clapper Publishing. "Although not everyone can
deliver condolences in person, all Americans can send a message from their
hearts through these angels."
Participation is open for individuals, schools,
churches, and civic organizations... anyone who feels they would like to
contribute to the healing of our nation by making an angel.
Details about The Angel Project as well as free
instructions and patterns for a variety of angel projects for every skill
level are available here on this website. Instructions and patterns are also
available for those who would prefer to send a heart or dove. These patterns
are provided courtesy of Clapper
Communications as suggestions, but we are accepting any ornament-sized
handmande angel, heart, or dove that you would like to send.
Please mail completed angels by December 7, 2001, to:

Let’s not forget those
though that we have always helped in the past.
In past Baloo’s Bugles you can find ideas to help those who are
less fortunate: the homeless, the forgotten elderly, families who have
difficulties celebrating the magic of the December Holiday season.
And “Helping other People at all times”, means exactly that, at
all times. Remember, December
isn’t the only month that others would appreciate help from Cub Scouts.
We have heard the saying, “It’s not over til the
fat lady sings,” purportedly said by baseball legend Yogi Berra.
I’d like to say, “It’s not over until Pedro starts singing,
braying : ). Yes on
December 31, 2001, if Pedro hasn’t received your envelope, (postmarked by
that date), your Cubs can’t earn Boy’s Life, “Yes to Reading” patch,
Pedro will be singing.
Every year Boys’ Life has a
FABULOUS reading program for
Scouts. This contest/program, “Say Yes to Reading” was detailed in the
June issue page 13, of Boys’ Life.
Write a one-page report
titled "The Best Book I Read This Year" and enter it in the Boys'
Life 2001 "Say Yes to Reading" contest.
The book can be fiction or
non-fiction. But the report has to be in your own words - 500 word tops.
Enter in one of these three age categories:
8 years old and younger
and 10 years old
years and older
your report with your name, address, age and grade in school along with a
business-sized, self-addressed stamped envelop to:
Life Reading Contest - S304
must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2001.
New Powwow books—yes
with the end of the year I am completely out and have no new ideas for the
coming year, January 2002-December 2002.
Contact me if you can help.
Awhile back, we changed ISPs, and I
lost some email addresses. If
anyone out there talks to Earl Bateman, Canada, Scott Thayer, Alabama,
please have them email me at email@example.com
