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

Brave

When I think about bravery my first thought is soldiers and first responders.  What could be braver than run toward the battle or into the burning building.  However, we all have a calling in life and some may never have those types of circumstances or opportunities to display their bravery.

2021 Re-charter is here!!!

Posted by rtownsend on Sep 28 2020 - 2:12pm

2020 has been an "interesting" year and through it all, we've been able to provide some incredible experiences and memories for our scouts.  We have been profoundly blessed to be active and healthy this year and we cannot wait to make 2021 even greater for our troop.

Time for some "Fun"draising!

Boston Butts 2020 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you did not pick up your forms last night, please email Ms. Herald to register for selling.

We are excited to kick off this year's selling season for our annual Scout fundraiser.

Attached are this year's forms and you'll notice some changes.  In order to streamline our event, make it easier for our Scouts and leaders to keep up with the paperwork, and ultimately put more money in our Scouts' accounts, the team has developed some new forms for you to use.

Thrifty

This month's Point of Law is a great one to apply in many areas of our day to day life.

Thrifty Scouts look for ways to save money.  It could be not spending on some items that we can do without.  How about applying the lessons learned in your Second Class Rank, as well as Personal Management and Family Life Merit Badges?  Thrifty even applies to other elements like Leave No Trace and the Outdoor Code.  

September is a great month to practice another element of Thrifty and that is the ability to earn your own money for your scout activities.  Camping, High Adventure, and several other troop activities require money and this month, we will be kicking off our annual Boston Butt fundraiser.  This is your chance to earn money for your scout account.  We'll have more details coming soon about how to sell, timing for the event, and all the fun that comes along with it.

What can you do this month to earn money, save more, and spend less?

The Ten Essentials

Posted by rtownsend on Aug 28 2020 - 12:19pm

Tuesdays night's meeting is all about The Ten Essentials.  You've heard the term.  Now it's time to get yours together and make sure you are always ready for adventure.

One of the best ways to "Be Prepared" is to use your resources.  Below is a link to the BSA's Official Ten Essentials.

One of the items listed is your personal First Aid Kit.  You'll find the details for what you need in your kit in your Scout Handbook or listed in the link below.

Be sure to include a copy of your Medical Forms A & B in your kit.

On Tuesday, scouts will be reviewing each other's essentials, demonstrating the use of some of the items, and possibly completing a patrol challenge or two.
