All help is appreciated and we will take whatever time you can give! We especially need weed trimmer, mowers, and leaf blowers for the Scout House.

Our next PLC meeting will be held on Monday, August 29th starting Promptly at 6:30PM. Need All Scout Leaders to attend (SPL, ASPL, Patrol and Assistant Patrol Leaders).

In Honor of the Labor Day Holiday we will NOT have a Troop meeting on Monday, September 5th. Have a wonderful and restful day with your family and friends!

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.

Knot of the week for the next Troop meeting on August 29th  will still be the Clove Hitch since Mr. Beckwith was unable to be at our last Troop meeting.

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.
(Outdoor Code)

Be Prepared!
(Boy Scout Motto)

Do a Good Turn Daily!
