A Council-wide recruiting event with free youth archery for 7-14 year olds will be held on Saturday, September 18 from Noon to 5PM in Collierville at Schilling Blvd and Poplar Ave. They will have certified instructors. Any Scouts who would like to attend and promote our unit should wear their uniform and wear a mask.

Our Awards Court of Honor will be held on Tuesday, September 14 in Faith Hall at 7 PM. We invite families to attend, masks are required. We will be kicking off our Holiday Greenery fundraiser that night as well. No refreshments for this. The $25 per person campout fee for the September 24-26 campout is also due on September 14.

Our Troop Family Picnic will be held on Tuesday, September 28 at 6 PM next to the Ralph Moak garage at the church. Please bring a lawn chair. Food will be provided by the troop. Water will be provided to drink, or you can bring your own drinks. Please RSVP by 9/24 so we can have the right amount of food, at this link:


Bring a Friend Night – September 21

The troop meeting on September 21 will be “Bring a Friend” night, so please start talking to your friends about Troop 48 and invite them to attend on September 21st at 7 PM. All Scouts who bring a friend will get pizza for the Scout and his friend.


Popcorn Fundraiser

Just a reminder to keep taking orders and money for BSA popcorn until October 19th. Please see my 8/15/21 email for details. The first Fill-It-Up Prize drawing will be on October 5th – if you fill up an order form, you are eligible to enter the drawing. Scouts will earn 60% of the profit from the popcorn sales in Scout Bucks, so this is a good way to help offset your family’s Scouting expenses.


Just a reminder – Scouts need to bring their BSA Handbook to all Troop meetings
