Please come down to ask questions about procedure, advancement, merit badges, rank requirement, volunteer opportunities, etc. We need more Troop Committee members to help plan / orchestrate events.

Bring your Scout book to every meeting - Joe Super along with other adult leaders will be checking your books and updating the 'Scoutbook' app so your electronic records are up to date as well.

Why volunteer?.... not just for service time rank advancement

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Watch this video of NHELC Scout Sunday to learn how the scouting experience has impacted both Scouts and Adult volunteers:  https://youtu.be/IhWH2Lqv4dk

What's next? Update to the exterior graphics of the trailer will be performed over the next few months. So far, only 2 design ideas have been submitted by the scouts. If you have an idea - please provide it to Mrs. Trexler at the next Troop meting. Templates are attached below.

Merit Badge Competition

Posted by mtrexler on Aug 2 2022 - 4:20pm

The Scouts need to Notify Mr. Berger when they complete a Merit Badge. 

We take the 137 current MB’s and invert them so that the least earned has the highest point value.  For example, the listing for 2019 has “First Aid” as the most earned, so that would be worth 1 point, but  “Bugling” was the least earned and is worth 137 points

So what do I need to do? You need to start and finish your MB’s in the calendar year of 2022.  Previously started MB’s will not be counted even if completed in 2022.  Must start and complete in 2022.
