Hello Phu Huynh and Soi Con,

We just had our last meeting today. Thanks to anh Nguyen (Tristan’s dad) for bringing snacks/drinks. We would like to share some info regarding a couple events of the year.

1. Year-End Picnic

   Entrance fee: $5 per vehicle (Pay at gate)

   When: November 19th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

   Where: Irvine Regional Park, Picnic Area #2, 1 Irvine Park Rd, Orange, CA 92869

We need everyone to arrive at the park by 8:45 am so that you can find parking and where we will be gathering.  There will be a game of “Name that fruit in Vietnamese” so please help your Soi Con to study at home from an attachment. Bring your refillable water bottle!  Scouts will get thirsty running around playing the games.

2. Annual Lac Long & Phu Dong Potluck Fun Day

Please plan on joining the families on December 3rd at 10:00 am for a day of Fun, Food and Games!  This is an annual event where scouts don’t have to dress up in scout uniform and get to relax and enjoy each other’s company.  Parents also get to interact with each other and the Truong’s in a laid back/relaxed environment! This is not a scouting event so no permission slip needed! Scout siblings encouraged to come and be part of the fun!

Thank you to Truong Toan and Truong Khanh-Hong for always hosting this fun event in their huge back yard!!!

   When: December 3rd at 10:00 am
