Troop 48 Update - 5/19/17

Posted on Sun, May 21, 2017

The Blessings of Liberty Program – need Color Guard Volunteers

Faith Presbyterian Church is having a program called “The Blessings of Liberty” on Saturday, June 3 at 2:00 pm. All Scouts and their families are invited to attend the program. We need 4-6 Scouts to provide the color guard for the program on June 3, and there is also a rehearsal on Wednesday, May 31 at 6:30 pm.  This is a good opportunity to complete Second Class requirements 8a and 8b. Please let Mr. Rob Ragland know if you can volunteer or if you have any questions.


Use the Hashtag #Troop48Gtown

Leaders, Scouts, Parents, Friends: 

Are you social media savvy? I love social media in that it's a great way to connect and share, but I always feel like I'm two steps behind....all the apps, the updates!

One easy way to stay connected with the Troop is by using our hashtag #Troop48Gtown.

By using  the hashtag when you post a picture to Facebook or Instagram, we are all collectively creating a virtual photo album! So remember to tag your photos #Troop48Gtown!

See the Troop FB page later today to find an article with more great social media information.

Memorial Day Service Project

We 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 27. We will meet at 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 the flag. Wear your Class A uniform. 


BBQ Fundraiser

Attached is the order form and information for our BBQ sale fundraiser, led by Mr. Richard Ralph. Please start taking orders now for BBQ ribs and pork roasts, to be picked up on Sunday, July 2nd from 12:00 – 2:00. All orders are due by June 27th, but please  email or text Mr. Ralph your orders as you get them, so he can plan appropriately for the grill size. Funds raised from this sale will help subsidize the Troop’s activities, so please sell as much as you can. You do not want to miss out on this great BBQ from Mr. Ralph’s award-winning Serial Grillers BBQ team!


Class B Uniforms

The Troop will change to Class B uniforms (Troop t-shirts) for Troop meetings beginning May 30 and continuing until Labor Day. Class A uniforms will still be worn traveling for trips.


Summer Break

Just a reminder that there will be no Troop meetings June 13 through July 11. Troop meetings will resume on July 18.
