Troop 48 Update - 9/22/17

Posted on Fri, Sep 22, 2017

Pledge to Never, Ever Use Your Phone While Driving, Because #ItCanWait

We encourage all Scouts and parents to take the #ItCanWait pledge, which can be found at the following link – distracted driving is never O.K.!



Philmont Training Session – September 23

For the participants attending Philmont next year, there will be a training session at the church garage from 8 am to 10 am on Saturday, September 23. Dress for athletic activities and bring a water bottle.


Required Backpacking Demo for Parents of New Backpackers – September 26

There is a required backpacking demo for Parents of Scouts who haven’t backpacked with the Troop before at 7 PM on September 26th. Please make plans to attend. This meeting is required to be attended by a parent in order for the Scout to go on the October backpacking trip.


Popcorn Fundraiser

If you did not get a popcorn sales packet, please see Mrs. Gamblin at next week’s Troop meeting. The orders and money are due on October 24, and the popcorn will be delivered on November 14. If you fill up an entire order form sheet, please turn it in to Mrs. Gamblin to be entered into a drawing for weekly prizes, with the first one due by Oct 2. Scoutmaster Issing’s challenge is to sell $1,000 of popcorn and you will get to put a pie in his face! Also, all Scouts will earn 60% of the Troop’s profit for what they sell in their Scout Bucks account. So let’s get selling!


Greenery Fundraiser

Packets for the greenery fundraiser were handed out last Tuesday, please see Mrs. Ridenhour if you did not get a packet.  The orders and money are due on October 24, and the greenery will likely be delivered the week of November 13.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 Scouts with the most sales, and if you sell more than Scoutmaster Issing, you will get to put a pie in his face!  Scouts earn 60% of the profits for what they sell in their Scout Bucks account, so this is a great way to pay for your Scouting activities!  For Holiday Gift orders that will be shipped by FedEx, be sure to complete a Holiday Gift Order Form for each item. Please see Mrs. Ridenhour if you need more Holiday Gift Order Forms. Note that we are selling 25” and 36” wreaths – the 25” ones will fit on a door, the 36” ones are too large for a door.



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’ll be inviting prospects to camp with us on the November campout at Wall Doxey State Park November 10-12.
