Troop 48 Update - 5/19/16

Posted on Mon, May 23, 2016

Troop Service Projects – Next Two Saturdays

We have two Troop service projects planned in May where Scouts can earn service hours. Service hours are required for the Tenderfoot rank and above (2016 requirements), however all Scouts are encouraged to participate.


Church Service Project – this Saturday, May 21st

We will meet at the church from 9 am – 12 noon to help spread mulch in the church’s flowerbeds. We are so thankful to Faith Presbyterian Church for serving as our Troop’s home, and this is a great way for our Troop to say thanks. Wear work clothes and bring a water bottle. Bring the following if you can to help spread the mulch: wheel barrow, rake, pitchfork, shovel, bucket, gloves. If you plan to attend, please let Mrs. Kim Ridenhour know. There is a funeral at the church at 1pm, so please pick up Scouts promptly at 12 or a little before.


 The following people have signed up for the Church Service Project:

 Josef Lee

 Will Ridenhour

 Ross Earl

 Darrian Lockett

 Michael Rook

 Teddy Johnson

 Owen Jordan

 Jack Jordan

 Patrick Parsels

 John Campbell


Memorial Day Service Project – Saturday, May 28th

This service project will be assisting with flag placement at the West Tennessee Veteran's Cemetery, 4000 Forest Hill Irene Rd, Memphis, beginning at 8 am on Saturday, May 28th. We will meet at Faith Presbyterian Church at 7:30 am, or you can go directly to the Cemetery at 8 am. After the opening ceremony, we will go by the grave of a Troop 48 Alumni to pay our respects.  Be prepared for hard ground - bring a screwdriver & hammer/mallet to make a pilot hole for flag. Wear your Class A uniform.  If you plan to attend, please let Mr. Bo Hormberg know.


New Facebook Site

Troop 48 has a new Facebook site. It is: aka 'Troop 48 Germantown'. Please look for it and request joining.  The prior site will be taken down soon, so please save any posts or pictures you would like from the prior site.


We also have an Instagram account known as 'troop48germantown'. 


Flag Ceremony for Church’s Patriotic Program

We need 6 scouts to volunteer to perform a flag ceremony at the beginning of a Patriotic Program at Faith Presbyterian Church on Saturday, June 4th at 1:30 pm (program begins at 2 pm). There is a rehearsal on Wednesday, June 1st at 6:30 pm. This is an opportunity to complete the Second Class rank requirements for participating in a flag ceremony.  Please let Mr. Rob Ragland know if you can volunteer for this.


Also, all Troop families are invited to attend the church’s Patriotic Program, June 4th at 2 pm. This is a family event and the church’s youth group will be helping with the program. The program focus is on the Bill of Rights and honoring first responders (fire/police/EMT).


July 4th BBQ Fundraiser

Attached is the order form for our July 4th BBQ Fundraiser, see the attached form for the details. Please complete a form for each order and turn in to Mr. Richard Ralph by June 28th.  This is some wonderful BBQ, so do not miss out!  We will also need some Scouts to help distribute the BBQ on July 4th, more details to come later.
