Patrol reorganization, STAR and LIFE scouts

Posted on Aug 24 2014 - 8:52pm

This week, we are reorganizing patrols. This will particularly affect all Star and Life scouts.

We have a large number of scouts approaching the Eagle rank. Many of these scouts have not had the opportunity to demonstrate the type of leadership that we want to see in an Eagle Scout, whether because they have not held a position of responsibility in the troop since attaining their current rank or were not sufficiently active when they did.

Class B Troop T-shirts are in

Posted on Jul 4 2014 - 6:46pm

A new batch of class B T-shirts are in stock. These are light gray T-shirts with the same logo as the neckerchiefs. They are highly recommended for summer camp and for any troop activity where you would not want to wear your class A uniform shirt.

Desperately need activity coordinators

Posted on Apr 6 2014 - 9:07pm


In order to coordinate troop activities, we assign an adult activity coordinator to each month. This coordinator doesn't need to run any of the events, but is responsible for ensuring that there is sufficient preparation for the events to happen. The scouts created the calendar, but we need adult volunteers to coordinate with guest speakers, make sure trips get set up, and basically get each month's planning started at least a month or two prior.

We also still need an overall Activities Chair. The main job of the Activities Chair is to make sure we have activity coordinators for each month.

Please get in touch with Greg O'Neill or Jerry Williams if you can volunteer for any of these coordinator roles.
