Troop 48 Update - 9/8/17

Posted on Sun, Sep 10, 2017

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.


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.


Awards Court of Honor – September 19

Our Awards Court of Honor will be on September 19 at 7 PM in the chapel. All Scouts and their families are encouraged to attend. For refreshments, please sign up on the website at the following link: Refreshment Sign-Up  Each patrol will have responsibility for part of the refreshments for each Court of Honor, but the responsibilities will rotate between patrols. Thanks to Marjorie Reynolds for coordinating the refreshments!


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.
