Troop 48 Update - 10/2/20

Posted on Fri, Oct 2, 2020

Save the Dates – Upcoming Campouts

We are in the process of planning two campouts for October and November. More details will be coming later, but please save these dates on your calendar:

  • October 24-25 Flying Falcons Patrol (New scouts) Campout at Wall Doxey State Park
  • November 14-15 Phoenix and Battering Rams Patrols Backpacking Campout at Big Hill Pond State Park

Troop 48 Fundraisers

Just a reminder to keep selling popcorn! (See email sent 8/16) Popcorn orders and money are due October 17.

You will receive an email tonight kicking off our holiday greenery sale with all of the details, and packets will be available to be picked up this weekend. Greenery orders and money will be due October 25.

Used Uniform Parts/Troop 48 T-Shirts

If you have any uniform parts or Troop 48 t-shirts that you would like to donate back to the troop, please plan to bring them to the popcorn order drop-off on October 17 (still finalizing the place and time). We will have a table set up where you can drop these off, and then others can pick up items they want during the popcorn order drop-off. If you would like to look through these donated items to get free t-shirts and uniform parts, please plan to stop by on October 17 to see what we have.

Adult Volunteers Needed

  • We need adult volunteers to assist with the Greenery and Popcorn sales. This year, Marjorie Reynolds will lead the Greenery sale and Kim Ridenhour will lead the Popcorn sale, but this is the last year they will be doing it, so we would like to have two volunteers work with them this year so they can lead the sales next year. If you are interested in either of these roles, please contact Kim Ridenhour. 

  • We need an adult volunteer to manage our troop’s Facebook site, posting articles each week. Material for posting will be provided. If you are interested in this role, please contact Kim Ridenhour.  We also are looking for someone to replace Kim as Committee Chair. Let Kim or John Campbell know if you are interested in that role.

  • The Troop Committee has begun to meet regularly again virtually on WebEx. The next Committee meeting will be on October 5 at 7 PM, and we plan to meet in November and December on the 1st Monday evening (11/2 & 12/7). All parents are welcome to attend Troop Committee meetings. If you are not a Committee member, but would like to attend the Committee meeting, please let Kim Ridenhour know and she will send you the WebEx invitation.

All Troop 48 in-person activities are cancelled until the church informs us that we can return.
