Riverfest help still needed

Posted by rtownsend on Sep 21 2021 - 2:37pm

We are looking forward to another great year of supporting our community and raising money for the troop.

We still need at least 5 more volunteers for Saturday and Sunday morning as well as 9 for Saturday afternoon and 8 for Sunday afternoon.

Each year, we participate in parking responsibilities and this has become our primary troop fundraising event.  We are committed to keeping our troop dues as low as possible and one of the main ways we do this is through selective fundraising opportunities.  Riverfest is a long-standing partnership and one that provides great revenue and exposure for the troop.

Since this is designed to raise money for the troop, this is a required event.  If you already have obligations and cannot attend at least one shift, please see Mr. Townsend right away.

New Month, New Focus: A Scout Is...

...Friendly.

When you think about being friendly, is your first thought "I'm friendly, I smile and say hello to people"?

That is one great example of what it means to be friendly.  As scouts, we promise to go farther.  We promise to live friendly.  How about showing a new person at school to their class.  How about going out of your way to make a new neighbor feel welcome when they move in.  Do you know that walking away from the wrong kind of friends is also demonstrating friendship?

Our scout book reminds us to Demonstrate Scout Spirit and being friendly is one of the best ways that we can live out our promise to the Scout Law, Scout Oath, and Outdoor Code.

...Helpful.

What a great thing to be known as.  The iconic picture of a Boy Scout helping an elderly person cross a street quickly comes to mind when we think of "Helpful."

What's better on a cold day than thinking about SUMMER CAMP 2021

Get Ready Scouts - 2021 Summer Camp Is Going To Be Awesome! 

You'll never forget your summer at Woodruff. With programs designed for maximum fun and achievement, Woodruff offers once-in-a-lifetime adventures for Scouts looking for a pure Scouting experience.

Your typical Woodruff morning is spent working on Merit Badge requirements at our class-leading waterfront, nature/STEM center, shooting sports ranges, field sports facilities, and handicraft areas. In the afternoon, Scouts and their Troops have the opportunity to take on adventure challenges like climbing & rappelling, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, mountain boarding, ga-ga ball, and a variety of aquatic activities. Campfires, movie nights, Vespers, and spoof badge sessions fill the twilight hours before taps closes out another great day of camp.

Located in the North Georgia Mountains, Woodruff's natural environment gives you nearly unlimited opportunities for adventure. And our renowned first-year camper program and quality merit-badge instruction means that every Scout will have the time of his life.
