Troop 48 Update - 8/2/19

Posted on Tue, Aug 13, 2019



Swim Fun Night – August 6

On August 6, we will have a Swim Fun Night at Germantown Athletic Club from 7:30 – 9:00 PM, instead of the regular Troop meeting at the church. Each person swimming needs to complete the attached Guest Waiver form and bring it with them on August 6. If you are a member of Germantown Athletic Club, please bring your membership pass. This is also an opportunity to take the BSA Swim Check if needed or complete Second Class swimming requirements. If you need to take the Swim Check or need Second Class requirements, please let Mr. Bo Hormberg know.  All Scouts and Dads need to have passed the BSA Swim Check in the past year and qualify as a “BSA Swimmer” to go canoeing on the October campout. The August camping trip is open to anyone regardless of swimming ability. The park's swim area is attached to our campsite and we will use the BSA's Safe Swim Defense protocol to ensure the safety of all participants in the water activities.


Troop 48 90th Anniversary Celebration – August 17 – Purchase your tickets

Our troop is having its 90th anniversary this year, and we will celebrate with friends and alumni on August 17th. See the attached letter for details and the ticket order form. A BBQ dinner will be served, led by our own Richard Ralph and his Serial Grillers BBQ team. Tickets are $10 per person if purchased prior to August 8th, $15 per person after August 8 – WE ARE EXTENDING THE $10 TICKET PRICE TO THE TROOP ONLY UNTIL TUESDAY, AUGUST 13.  We would like everyone from the Troop to plan to attend this event, so please mark this on your calendars and purchase your tickets from Kim Ridenhour. Scout Bucks may be used, and we will be taking ticket orders and money at the GAC if you would like to turn them in then.


Volunteers Needed

We need some parents and Scouts to volunteer to help clean up after the Troop Anniversary 90th Anniversary Celebration on August 17. We will need to take down all chairs and tables, sweep the floor, then run the floor cleaning machine and set up the chairs for the Sunday morning church service.  We also need some volunteers to help set up tables and chairs on either Saturday morning 8/17 or Friday night, 8/16. If you can help with either of these, please let Kim Ridenhour know.


Cub Scout Pack 48

Our Cub Scout Pack will be changing their meeting nights to Monday nights and will be resuming meetings on August 5th. If you know any boys in kindergarten through fifth grade who would be interested in Cub Scouts, please contact Mr. John Campbell or Mr. Ross Earl.
