Last Troop Meeting

Posted on Jun 12 2024 - 11:37pm


The Scouts had an amazing trip to Sleeping Giant State Park last weekend, and camped out in a primitive site.    Lots of hiking, wonderful views, and Patrol cooking.    We'll have to go back there again.     And we'll put up higher resolution pictures on our Facebook page.

We had our last Troop Meeting of the 2023/2024 year tonight.    We'll start up regular Troop meetings in the fall.

We had two new Cub Scouts visit us, and they were impressed with the Scouts.   Hopefully they'll be future Scouts in our Troop!     We also planned menus for the August Trip.

And, the winner of the second Patrol Contest this year is the Phoenix Patrol.   Congratulations!

We'll see you next at Ray's Eagle Court of Honor.   Make sure you save that date!   Then Summer camp, and then the Berkshire East Camping and Whitewater Rafting Trip.    Stay tuned for more communications about both of those.

 

Upcoming:

  • 06/23  Sunday 12:30 - 3:00   Ray Darling Eagle Court of Honor.   Avery Street Church.   Support your Eagle Scout!
  • (The  PLC Planning / Cookout will be rescheduled.)

We had a wonderful Spring Court of Honor tonight.     Congratulations to all our Scouts who earned Ranks, Merit Badges,  Patches from our Gettysburg Trip,  Position Patches for our Senior Patrol, and even some patches for the siblings who attended our Gettysburg Trip.

We also had a presentation of a plaque to say "Thank you" again to Mrs Sandra Bernstein for the donation from the Daniel Schaefer trust to our Troop.

And our previous Dairy Queen Radioactive Blizzards Patrol winners of the last Patrol contest were awarded their prize (gift certificates to...   DQ!).    Where they promptly went afterwards.

Afterwards we firmed up our plan for this weekend's camping trip to Sleeping Giant State Park.   Look for an email with more details coming out Thursday.
