Troop Elections, Monday, August 21st

Fall Camporee in Big Timber, September 15, 16 and 17

Save this date!  The Fall Camporee is always a good time!  We will give you more information soon about activities at the event.

September 18th Troop Meeting

Every few months, the church hosts Family Promise in the church.  That means we need to meet outside the church.  Information about where and when will be announced soon.

Court of Honor, September 25th, 6:30pm

Scouts attending summer camp will be awarded their merit badges tonight.  We will start earlier on this night.  Please arrive at 6:30pm instead of 7pm.  We will have the Court of Honor beginning at 6:30pm followed by dessert.  Everyone should bring a dessert to share.

Popcorn and Wreath Introduction, September 25th

Scouts will receive their selling sheets for popcorn and wreaths on this night.  This is the largest fund raiser scouts have all year.  Scouts will receive 15% of all their popcorn sales and $5 for every wreath they sell.  All parents should attend this meeting to hear about fund raising.  Scouts can earn money not only for summer camp, but for all scouting events.  If a scout sells enough, they can earn money for a college scholarship.  Come to the meeting to get the details.

Popcorn and wreath sales are from Saturday, September 30th to Sunday, October 22nd.
