Scoutmaster message of 10/17/16:

Please sign up for the upcoming campouts. We need to have you signed up and paid at least Two Weeks before the campout in order to properly have time to put them together.

November 4th – 6th  – Sycamore Canyon Campout – NOTE NEW DATE. We will be doing the campout planning Before our Halloween party next Monday.
December 3rd – Date to be confirmed -  Hanger 18 Day Trip (Rock Climbing)

Monday, October 24th will be our Halloween party. The Patrols planned out their games. All Scouts/Scouters should come in Costume and bring a treat or snack to share with the Troop. No Class “A” required for this night. We will need to finalize plans for the Sycamore Campout this night since we will not be meeting the following Monday, October 31st so all Scouts who are going on this campout need to attend!

Monday, October 31st we will NOT be meeting since it is Halloween and everyone should be out with their families enjoying “trick or treating”. We will resume our regular Troop meetings on Monday, November 7th.

We have officially kicked off our Annual Christmas Wreath Fundraiser. Brochures were handed out at last night meeting. We will have more brochures at the Court of Honor if anyone needs one. These are good quality items and last well into the new year. Please sell to family, friend, co-workers,  or neighbors. As a Troop we need to sell at least fifty (50) items in order to qualify to place an order so we appreciate support from everyone to make this a success. All monies raised will go to your  Scouts for campouts and leadership camps. Please be sure to have any checks made out to Troop 270. All orders are due back on Monday, November 7th which gives you about four weeks to sell.  We expect to have the items for pickup around December 2nd – 3rd.

Its Re-Charter time. We need all families to see Mr. Grace to pay the re-charting fees for the next year. We would like to have this completed before Thanksgiving which means we need to have all fees paid by November 14th.

The Troop is in the planning stages of organizing a trip to Northern Tier in Minnesota. This is a BSA High Adventure Camp. A youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by date of participation. We need to get commitments in order to know how many slots we need to put in for. If you are interested please sign up ASAP. A deposit is due now.

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
(Scout Law)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
(Scout Oath)

As an American, I will do my best to -
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
