Troop 48 Update - 8/30/19

Posted on Sun, Sep 8, 2019

Popcorn Sale

Our Scouts BSA popcorn sale is underway, so please sell as much as possible. Orders and money will be due on October 22 to Mrs. Yvonne Gamblin, and the products will be delivered in mid-November.  If you haven’t received your order form, please see Mrs. Gamblin, or the order form can be found online at: Popcorn Products Popcorn Order Form All orders must be entered online using the Scout’s online account with Trail’s End. Parents and Scouts can go to to set up the account. Scouts that already have an account from prior years but do not know the password or username should go to the log-in screen ( and use the “What’s my username” and “What’s my password” prompts. You can also use your account to take orders online, and there is now free shipping for online orders. There is also a Trail’s End app that allows you take orders using the app and you can also accept credit card payments through the app. Please contact Mrs. Gamblin if you have any questions.


Adult Volunteer Needed

A very large tree has fallen on the east side of the church’s property, and our Troop has an opportunity to get free firewood if we do the work to cut it from the tree.  This would also be a service project to the church because they want the tree removed. We need an adult volunteer to organize this effort. If you are interested in leading this, please contact Kim Ridenhour.


Advancement Report Attached

Attached is this month’s advancement report. Please check to see if your record is up to date, and please see Mrs. Vietzke with your BSA Handbook if there are any updates to be made.
