Pizza kit fundraiser begins Jan 22

Posted by mhachig on Jan 19 2019 - 10:37pm

Since our earnings at Art on the Lake were less this year, we are adding an additional fundraiser.

Beginning on January 22, Scouts will be able to sell a Hungry Howie's pizza kit.  For $7, customers can buy a coupon for a medium pizza with one topping that can be used at any Hungry Howie's location.  

Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Well, if you go on the Skiing campout the weekend of January 18-20, that's one thing you could do.

There's certain to be snow up north, but I hear they have a Snow Queen on call if they need help!

If you want to join the Troop but aren't into Skiing or Snowboarding, we're working to get a group of Scouts and Adults together that would avoid the slopes and do other fun activities.  The cost would be lower since you don't need the ski/snowboard gear - just the food and lodging.

The deadline for signing up is at our first Troop Meeting of the new year - January 8th.  If you need more time, Mr Meredith MAY grant you a one or two day extension - depending on if he's feeling Grinchy or not.

Leftover wreath products

Posted by mhachig on Dec 21 2018 - 10:40pm

We still have a few items leftover from our wreath sale.  The Troop has already paid for these, so any items not sold are a loss.

36" Cranberry Splash Wreath  
Classic Spray 4
Victorian Spray 5
Candlelit Centerpiece 1
Table Top
Christmas Tree

Please let me know if you would like one of these ASAP.  Even selling them at cost is better than throwing them away.

Popcorn orders due!

Posted by mhachig on Oct 20 2018 - 7:19pm

Popcorn orders are due on Tuesday, October 23 and must be turned in by 9:00 pm.

If you have taken popcorn for show and sells, it must also be returned before this time.  If you don't return it on time, it will count toward your order and you will be responsible for paying for it.

A Big Thanks to Mr Lee!

Posted by godfreyc on Sep 8 2018 - 1:45am

At the recent Kickoff Picnic/Court of Honor, we (finally) honored our longest-serving Scoutmaster, Hanson Lee, for his years of service to the Troop and the Community.  From 1990 to 2017, Mr Lee held the position of Scoutmaster, overseeing a group of boys that some years, numbered as low as 10, while in other years, was as high as 43!  In all, well over 200 Scouts have spent time in the Troop with Mr Lee as Scoutmaster, and 50 of them them have earned the rank of Eagle Scout!

Troop Committee Chair Michael Nowosatko presented Mr Lee with a clock for his years of service as Scoutmaster.  We also took the opportunity to present him with a customized "Scoutmaster" patch, with the word "Emeritus" embroidered at the bottom.  Whether he chooses to wear that patch, or a stock Assistant Scoutmaster patch will be up to him, but that shoulder has been without a patch for too long.

I won't try to list all of the ways Mr Lee has contributed to the community outside of his position in the Troop, but the ones that come to mind to me include Order of the Arrow (OA) Chapter Advisor, National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) Course Director and Scoutmaster, Advisor for Venture Crew 1888, and he's already scheduled to head up next August's Wood Badge Course.
