The Adams Street Cleanup has been rescheduled it for Saturday, July 2nd. We will do the Adams street cleanup and then go over to the Scout House to do our cleanup there in preparation for our July 4th fundraiser. We need All Scouts and Adults to pitch in and help! We will meet at 8:00AM at the parking lot of the industrial complex at the SW corner of Adams and Lincoln Ave. This should only take us about 1 – 1-1/2 hours to complete then head over to the Scout House. For the Scout house cleanup we need all Scouts and Adults to give whatever time they can. We especially need mowers, weed trimmers, and blowers. We will take whatever time you can give.
We have our Annual July 4th Fundraiser coming up. All proceeds go to the Troop to support the program. Each family is requested to donate two cases of soda pop and one case of water. PLEASE be sure to only purchase “Name Brand” sodas since that is what sells. Please NO diet at this time. We are also taking monetary donations to offset the purchase of the goods we will be selling to increase our profit for the boys. If you can help out a list of these items will be at the meeting for you to donate towards. We also will need some EZ-Ups and Ice Chests for the day. You can get further details at our Troop meetings.
We will be conducting our Annual Yearly Planning for campouts and activities on Saturday, July 2nd. We need all Scouts and Scouters to bring their ideas of things to do and places to go so we can plan another awesome year!! We will provide lunch.
We still have several Scouts and Scouters who have Not filled out new permission forms and medical forms for 2016. These forms are required to be every year per National. Information and forms can be picked up at the Troop meetings.
We are going to Camp Chewanakee for Summer Camp in July. We need you to make your Final payments to Mr. Grace Now since we have made the final payment. If you signed up and are not able to go please note that it is too late to remove you from the roster. You are responsible to still pay the monies or find a replacement. This is a Great Summer Camp and probably one of the Best in California. It is located in the Sequoia National Park with its own fresh water lake! Starting at the next Troop meeting please start turning in your physicals and permission forms. We need to have all of the paperwork in place within the next few weeks.
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.
Please be sure your dues and any outstanding camping fees are paid to the treasurer. We have had several outgoing expenses lately and would appreciate your payments.
Knot of the week for the next Regular Troop meeting on June 13th will be Square Knot
