Advancement Reminders

Hi Scouts: As we start our new scouting year, I'd like to take this opportunity to explain to new scouts and remind old scouts your accomplishments in scouting are yours and you can be proud:) I know it takes hard work to complete any rank requirements and merit badges so you deserve  the proper recognition at Court of Honor. To make sure your achievements are documented into our computer system:

Eagle Proj TY

I would like to thank everyone that came out to Calvary Church during the bills game to participate in my eagle project. We successfully removed many bushes and moved most of the dirt across the courtyard. The church members attending were very impressed with the hard work of the scouts. I will need a little help Friday after school to finish moving dirt. Thank you again for making this a successful project. Ethan

Thanks to the efforts of all the families who participated in our 2016 popcorn fundraiser campaign, we were able to exceed the Troop goal for this year ! ! As promised, with surpassing the goal we were given, in addition to the remote controlled BB-8 prize there will be additional prizes to be awarded during our grand prize drawing (now drawings) at our rewards party before holiday break in December. All popcorn products (and trail mix) that needed to be ordered is expected to arrive on Saturday, November 19th, and will be available to be picked up that afternoon or Sunday for you to deliver.

Cold Weather Training

Posted on Nov 8 2016 - 3:02pm

Hello Scouts and Parents! Saturday, December 3, is Cold Weather Training offered by Greater Niagara Frontier Council. For those who haven't taken it yet, it's a very valuable and informative course. The Troop HIGHLY recommends that all of our Scouts take it during their first year of Scouting. We camp and spend time in the outdoors year round...the knowledge that you'll gain will help to keep you safely warm through all of it! The Troop will reimburse all Scouts and Parents who take the course and bring their "Diploma" to a troop Meeting. Here's a link to sign up...please do it by 11/18, the price goes up after. http://www.wnyscouting.org/product/cold-weather-training/ If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks, YIS, Mr. Endres
