Upcoming dates and reminders

Posted on May 27 2020 - 11:21pm

There's only two more meetings of our regular year left!

06/03  Next Wednesday, we'll have our virtual last regular Troop meeting and it will be focused on Merit Badges again.   This is also the deadline to complete any ranks or Merit Badges for our spring Court of Honor.    There's still time to earn that Art Merit Badge, Cyber Chip, or Scout Rank.   Or any other!    Make sure you let us know by next Wednesday.

06/10  Wednesday will be our last Troop Meeting of the year, and our Spring Court of Honor.    The first time we've tried one virtually, and I can't wait to see how it works out.


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!

06/24  Optional Merit Badge virtual meeting.

07/08  Optional Merit Badge virtual meeting.

07/22  Optional Merit Badge virtual meeting.

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!

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.
