Troop 48 Update - 12/31/17

Posted on Tue, Jan 2, 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Weekly Troop meetings resume this Tuesday, January 2 at 7:00 PM.

 

Campout fee for January due this Tuesday

The $25 fee for the January 13-15 backpacking trip on the Ozark Trail in Missouri is due this Tuesday on January 2.  If you will not be able to attend that meeting, please sign up for the campout and pay the fee prior to January 2. Sign up with our Scribe and pay the fee to our Treasurer, Mr. Frederick Lee. ScoutBucks may be used, or PayPal or Plastiq links are available on our Troop website (www.troop48.org). Remember simply paying with PayPal or Plastiq is not signing up for the campout, Scouts still need to let the Scribe know they are signing up.

 

Conservation Service Project – Saturday, January 6

The Troop will be holding a conservation service project on January 6 at Pinecrest retreat center in LaGrange, TN from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Lunch will be provided by the Scoutmasters. This is an excellent opportunity for Scouts to earn service hours required for rank advancement, especially Star Scouts who are required to perform three conservation service hours to advance, or just to do your good turn for the day (A Scout is Helpful). Please let Mr. Bo Hormberg know if you will be attending the service project on January 6. Those adults who can help drive, please let Mr. Bo Hormberg know that as well.
