The pictures in Scoutbook will be updated with a more recent photo. This will most likely take place during a Board of Review, so scouts should be looking sharp!

Attached is info on Scout Insignia placement and proper way to wear a Merit Badge sash.

Scouts MUST bring all CAMPING gear back at 6:30 PM (Promptly) so that it can get checked in by the Quartermaster and put away BEFORE the opening at 7 PM.  BE ON TIME.
Scouts who had merit badge madness homework MUST have it completed for Tuesday's meeting.  Merit badge madness will continue 3/21, 3/28 and 4/11.
April 23 (1-4 pm) - Picnic Grove Clean Up - Scouts will help the church clean up the picnic grove to prepare it for spring/summer usage.  The troop holds their weekly meetings there starting around Memorial Day.  Please let us know whether you will come (April 2023 Picnic Grove CleanUp) so the church has a count to provide hot dogs etc.  Bring rakes, leaf blowers, etc. to help with the cleanup.
Troop Footlockers - Troop Scouts (and leaders) have traditionally had an opportunity to build a wooden footlocker for summer camp.  The AOL Crossover scouts and other newer scouts to the Troop have not had this opportunity.  We like all scouts to have these footlockers as they fit well in summer camp tents, hold a suitable amount of gear and make packing the trailers for camp much easier since all the footlockers are uniformly sized.  Please complete this link to indicate if your scout does/does not have a footlocker and if not, would you be interested in building one ahead of summer camp (appx cost $60 - but may be reduced if we can get material donations). Leaders going to summer camp - please complete this form as well.   Troop Footlocker Inventory / Interest Form
