Congratulations to James for earning TenderFoot, and Joe for earning Second Class!

Fundraiser June 10,11

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 10 & Sunday June 11, 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

Carolyn Bilelis

A special thank you for Town Councilor Mr Paterna for teaching a rank advancement at our Troop Meeting tonight, and Mrs Root for setting this up.

We have a weekend campout at Camp Workcoeman this Friday to Sunday.   Stay tuned for an email with more details.    Should be fun!

Next week, we'll have a special ILST Scout Leader Training session in place of our normal Troop meeting.   Note that we're starting earlier at 6:30 and running until 9:00.    We'll be meeting in the PRS Stem Room.     Please wear your Class A.

We have a new SPL.

Congratulations to our new SPL, Ray!

I'm sure he'll be serving up some great adventures, mixing things up, and really souping up the Troop.
