Flags for Thursday night 5/26

Posted on May 26 2022 - 12:09am
As announced at the Troop meeting tonight, there is an opportunity tomorrow (Thursday) at 6:30PM at the Wapping Cemetery to help place flags on headstones in preparation for Memorial Day.
Just show up in your Class A just before 6:30.        There is a tight driveway entering the cemetery on Oakland Road just past 4 corners.   Go in the driveway, into the cemetery, take a right, park along the road without blocking it, and look for other Scouts and Scouters.
Hope to see you there, if you can make it!

Sign up!! June 11-12 Troop 186 Rest Stop Fundraiser

Posted on May 26 2022 - 12:08am
Hello Again Scout Families,

Our Rest Stop Fundraiser is around the corner!  Please sign up for a shift here at our Sign Up Genius:
Some notes:
  • We really need to fill all the designated Scout and Adult slots, so I appreciate your flexibility in trying to accomplish that.
  • Setup and Breakdown shifts are a little shorter, since they involve a bit more manual labor ; )
  • I could use some help with donation pick-ups at various Dunkin Donuts the night before - Friday & Saturday nights ~ 9:30-10:00pm (at closing).  Just let me know if you are available and I'll give you all the instructions you need.
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you are able to volunteer for donation pickups.

Many Thanks,

Your Treasurer

We will have a Scout Meeting on Sunday if we have enough leaders.

Time to get those Merit Badge selections in for camp.

Time to get that medical form in for camp.

Checkout the dates on our calendar for marching in the Memorial Day Parade, a PLC meeting, a spring Court of Honor, and our next camp out!

The Spring Camporee at Camp Workcoeman was a lot of fun!

We managed to avoid most of the rain, some of the wildlife, and had a lot of fun on our Camporee!

Raccoons like cookies.    

The Lorax has a cousin.

Ask your Scout if any of that makes sense.

Join us on the next campout!

Save the Date! June 11-12 Troop 186 Rest Stop Fundraiser

Posted on May 4 2022 - 10:58pm

Hello Troop 186!


I am excited to report that the State Department of Transportation has accepted our application do a rest-stop fundraiser the dates of Saturday June 11 & Sunday June 12, providing free coffee and food at the I-84 EASTbound rest stop in Willington.


For those of you new to our Troop this is a fundraiser that we have done several times now and found it to be not only lucrative for our Troop, but also a lot of fun! Each Scout along with a parent comes out to the rest stop for a shift over the two days and helps give out free coffee, tea and snack food to travelers. We're not able to sell anything, but travelers have been very generous with donations in the past.  This is a mandatory event for all Scouts as all the money earned at this fundraiser is used to fund our Troop activities.   


I will soon send out a schedule where each Scout family can choose a slot on Saturday or Sunday that is convenient for them. 

As you can imagine, a weekend event like this requires a logistical plan including obtaining donations from local stores like Dunkin Donuts. If anyone is interested in helping us out with organizing and picking up donated items, shopping, or lending us a generator, please let me know.  We'd appreciate the help.  

I'll be in touch soon with further details and a sign-up schedule.


Many Thanks,

Your Treasurer
