It has been a while since I posted last so I have several things to get to.
The Memorial Day parade is this Saturday, 5/27. The troop will meet at 8:30am at the former South St. School. Step off is at 9am. The parade route is down Rt 50, right onto Front St then left onto Low St to the Memorial Park where there will be a Memorial Day ceremony. Our troop will be reading the names of local heroes who lost their lives in the wars. All scouts participating need to wear their Class A uniforms, with neckerchiefs and Troop 1 caps. Scout pants, jeans and most shorts are acceptable, but athletic shorts are not. The more scouts we have the more of our flag collection can be carried. Please let me know if you have not signed up but would like to march at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mini Golf is coming up on June 5. We will meet at 7:00 at Mr. Bill's on Geyser Rd. Scouts will play a round of mini golf and have a small ice cream. Always a great time!
Monday, June 12 is the Summer Camp meeting. This meeting is important for parents and scouts to attend and we ask that you do. There is a lot of information that goes out at this meeting and will hopefully answer any questions that you have. If your scout has not given Mr Roby their merit badge selections please do so soon. Merit badge class size is limited and sign ups open soon, we want to do everything we can so that scouts can get into the merit badges that they want.
**You can find the link to the merit badge schedule here http://www.trcscouting.org/files/d/usr/4/2017%20Daily%20Program%20Schedule.pdf
**Some of the merit badges can be totally completed at camp but others cannot unless certain pre requisites are completed PRIOR to coming to camp. Those pre requisites are here http://www.trcscouting.org/files/d/usr/4/Meirt%20Badge%20Prerequisites%202017.pdf More information will be given at the camp meeting
**The camp has a list of personal gear that they suggest for camp at this link http://www.trcscouting.org/files/d/usr/3514/Personal%20Gear%20for%20Camp%20List.pdf more information will be given at the camp meeting.
** Scouts who attend summer camp need a Dr's physical and parts A, B and C of the BSA Annual medical form completed. Information and forms can be found here http://troop1scouts.weebly.com/bsa-annual-medical-form.html If you are not sure about the status of your scouts medical form please contact me. Adults who stay at camp are required to have medical forms as well. Parts A and B are required for everyone, Part C is required if you will be at camp for 72 hours or longer
*********** We are in need of more adults at camp. We are required to have a minimum of 2 adults at camp at all times. We are in need of adult coverage. Please contact Mr. Roby if you are able to help **************
Help Wanted: We have only had one fundraiser in recent years, popcorn sales. We need someone to coordinate and run it. There is training provided through the council. If we do not have a volunteer before the end of July, we will not be participating. Popcorn sales help fun our unit, our council and help our scouts offset costs of dues, camp and equipment. Other fundraising ideas and coordination is welcomed as well.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend and we will see you at the parade!!
