Troop 48 Update - 12/14/18

Posted on Sat, Dec 15, 2018

REMINDER – There are no regular Troop meetings on December 18, 25 or January 1 (but please help with the Service Project on December 18 at 5:30 PM)


Service Project – Next Tuesday, December 18, 5:30 PM – Adult Drivers Needed

Our next troop service project will be assembling and delivering food baskets to four families in need. We will meet at 5:30 pm to assemble the baskets, and pizza will be provided. Scouts should wear their full uniform.


We still need some adult drivers to help drive Scouts to deliver the baskets, all in the Collierville area. Please let Assistant Scoutmaster Richard Ralph know if you can help with driving. There will not be a regular Troop meeting that night.


Philmont Trip Dates for 2020

Assistant Scoutmaster Bo Hormberg has secured dates for a high adventure trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. The 12-day expedition will arrive at Philmont on 6/21/2020 and will depart Philmont on 7/3/2020. Scouts need to be 14 years old OR 13 years old and completed 8th grade by 6/21/2020. A crew can be 8-12 people, with a minimum of two adults. This is an exciting opportunity for an life-changing experience at one of Scouting’s premiere high adventure bases. If you are interested in attending this trip, please contact Mr. Hormberg ( soon, as there are several deposits due and advance preparation for the trip.


ScoutBucks Earned from Fundraisers

Attached is a list of how much ScoutBucks everyone earned from the greenery and popcorn fundraisers. This is the same list that was handed out at the Court of Honor on December 4th.


Greenery for Sale

We still have three 36” Cranberry Wreaths for sale – make your best offer. Please contact Marjorie Reynolds ( if you would like to purchase one of these. Please note that ScoutBucks will not be awarded for reduced price sales.


Help Needed with Social Media
