Troop 48 Update - 2/10/20

Posted on Mon, Feb 10, 2020

February Backpacking Campout Fees due Tuesday, 2/11

The sign-up and $25 campout fee for the Backpacking 201 trip on February 21-23 is due this Tuesday. You must have been on a prior backpacking trip or have approval from the Scoutmaster to attend this trip.


Gear Check for those not yet First Class on this Tuesday, 2/11

Scouts attending the Backpacking trip on February 21-23 who are not yet First Class need to bring their packed gear to this Tuesday night’s meeting for a gear check.


First Aid Training

We are offering first aid training on two dates below (you would only attend one of these) at the church in our Scout Room 111. The training will include first aid, American Heart Association Heartsaver (CPR) and AED training. Our instructor will be Angelo Lamar who is a trainer for the Memphis Fire Department and he is offering the training at no cost. Note this will be a training and not a certification (If you need to be certified in CPR and AED you will need to pay a $20 fee, which goes to the AHA.) This is open to our Scouts, Leaders, parents/adults and our Cub Scout Pack Leaders and church employees. If you would like to sign up, please contact Kim Ridenhour with your choice of the two dates ( The class size will be limited, so please sign up soon if you are interested. Thanks to Rodney Donald for getting us connected to his friend Angelo Lamar!
