September Campout Fee due Tuesday, September 5

The $25 fee for the September 15-17 campout at Chickasaw State Park is due next Tuesday, September 5. Please sign up by the deadline.


Paper Egg Cartons Needed

We need a few paper egg cartons for a Scout project on September 12. If you could bring some to the Troop meeting on September 5 or 12, it would be very helpful. No foam cartons – only paper ones are needed.


Switch Back to Class A Uniforms

Effective September 5, all Scouts and Scouters should wear their Class A uniforms to Troop meetings.


Looking for Scout Reporters

We would like to have a Scout volunteer to write a camping trip recap to be posted on the Troop’s Facebook page. Please let Mr. Issing know if you would like to volunteer for this.


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.


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.
