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.

May 29th  – 31st – San Onofre State Beach Campout

We will be having a Adams Street cleanup followed by a Scout House cleanup THIS Saturday, March 28th starting at 8AM. Please mark your calendar and show up to help! We will start by doing the Adams Street cleanup first. Meet at the industrial parking lot at the corner of Adams and Lincoln. Once we are done we will then proceed over to the Scout House. Many hands make light work so we will take whatever time you can give. We need power tools to help with the Scout House – Mowers, Weed trimmers, and blowers.

The Mt. Rubidoux trail cleanup and trail lighting is coming. We will be doing the trial cleanup on Saturday, April 4th starting at 8AM. The trail lighting will take place early on Sunday morning, April 5th. Flyer attached. Please sign up for these events so we know who is planning to be there.

If you are interested in purchasing a Troop 270 jacket please see Mr. Beckwith. He will give you the details and would like to place an order in a couple of weeks. He is also looking into offering a Troop 270 sweatshirt and will have information on this option shortly.

Cedar Badge training is coming. This is the first level of leadership training for a Scout. In order to move on to NYLT you need to complete this training first. Flyer

If you want to go to NYLT or Foxfire Leadership training this summer please write a letter to the Troop Committee giving the reason you want to go to this training and if you are seeking any amount of scholarship please be sure to include that request in your letter. Letter are due back when we return after the Easter break on Monday, April 13th.

We will be going to Lost Valley this year for Summer Camp. If you are interested in going we need you to sign up and start making payments to Mr. Grace (Treasurer). You can get specific details at our Troop meeting. We only have two spots left so if you want to go sign up soon.

Knot of the week for next Troop meeting  will be Timber Hitch.

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!
(Boy Scout Slogan)

"May the great Scoutmaster of all Scouts be with you until we meet again."
(Scoutmaster's Benediction)
