We will have some optional Merit Badge classes  to keep us in touch over the summer, and don't forget, you can work on a Merit Badge or rank advancement at any time!

Taps played in honor of Memorial Day

Posted on May 27 2020 - 7:21pm

To honor veterans on Memorial Day we typically participate in a parade and ceremony, but unfortunately this year that will not be possible.  Scouts in town and across the country did play taps to honor those veterans that have gone before us.  A link to see two of our troop's Scouts playing taps. Thanks.

Look at the Cyber Chip requirements for your grade, follow the steps, and come prepared on Monday!

Posted on May 6 2020 - 10:46pm
Here is the link to the Scouts website.   Everyone should be earning the Cyber Chip, should look at the website, and review any work they can do at home. 
Follow the link for your grade - There are videos and other things to do before Monday.    Don't worry about the physical card - we have those and will sign them once we start meeting in person.
