Troop 48 Update - 8/27/17

Posted on Mon, Aug 28, 2017

Making Scouting More Accessible for Families

The Chickasaw Council is holding a meeting to get input on how they can make Scouting more accessible and bring the benefits of Scouting to the greatest number of youth while remaining true to our mission and core values. If you are interested in attending this discussion, the meeting will be held on Thursday, August 31 at 6:30 pm at The Church of Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 8150 Walnut Grove in Cordova.


Board of Reviews for Court of Honor

The last date for Board of Reviews to receive your new rank at the September Court of Honor is September 5th. Please contact Mrs. Vietzke if you need to schedule a Board of Review.  Committee members, please try to be available for the next two weeks during Troop meetings to participate in Board of Reviews.


Greenery Fundraiser

We need someone to volunteer to help lead the Greenery Fundraiser. Our fundraisers are important to keep down the costs of our Troop’s activities. If we don’t have parent involvement in our fundraisers, then we will need to raise the prices of Troop activities. If you can help with this, please let Kim Ridenhour know.


Bring a Friend Night – September 12

Our Troop is actively recruiting for new members, so please invite any boys you know ages 11-17 to join us at a Troop meeting. We will be having a specially planned Troop meeting for visitors on September 12. Bring a friend, and you and your friend will get pizza! Also, we’ll be inviting prospects to camp with us on the November campout at Wall Doxey State Park November 10-12.


Merit Badge Counselors Needed

We need someone to volunteer to be a Merit Badge Counselor for the Chess Merit Badge. If you could volunteer to lead this merit badge, please let Becky Vietzke know. ([] There are more than 135 different merit badges, so if you have experience in any of these topics, please consider sharing your time with the Scouts and serving as a merit badge counselor. See Becky Vietzke for an application form if you are interested.
