Let the Selling Begin...

Posted by rtownsend on Oct 7 2021 - 1:48pm
During Tuesday's meeting we "officially" kicked off 2021 Boston Butts and in this email, you are getting all the resources you need to make this the best year ever.
Attached are 4 documents:
2021 Boston Butt Flier:  You can post this in an email or social media
Butt Info Page:  This has all the details you need regarding dates, payments, etc.
Butt Order Form:  This is your tracker which you will turn in along with your payment.  (Make a copy of the completed form before turning it in.)
Butt Receipt:  This is for you to provide a receipt to your customers.
1. All orders and payments are due no later than Tuesday, 10/26.
2. If you sell butts, you smoke butts.  All scouts selling will need to be in attendance on Nov 19-20 for smoking.
3. As always, we need adults.  Please join us for the night to help.  You don't have to be a "pitmaster" you just have to be willing.
4. Sign up on the troop website.
5. If you know anyone who has seasoned hardwood, we would love donations.  Purchasing wood reduces the amount that each scout earns so being able to acquire quality wood at no cost will go a long way this year.  Please let Ms. Herald know if you have someone willing to donate and we will arrange pickup.
Thank you and happy selling!

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

Posted by rtownsend on Apr 1 2021 - 8:34am


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.

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

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."
