Congratulations to Troop 11’s latest Eagle, Ryan Hehir! Frustrated by some last-minute scrambling with wrong dates on paperwork, he finally got everything straightened out and passed his Board of Review with flying colors.
We delivered mulch today. This was the first installment with a later delivery day scheduled for March 27th. You can catch the video on the Chairman’s Blog.
All right! Welcome to two new Scouts tonight … Jason and Charlie! Upcoming on the 20th of this month is the Wilderness Survival Campout at Beaver Dam Park in Gloucester. This Saturday morning at 8 am will be the first mulch delivery day, and the last Thursday of this month will be a recruiting meeting with interested young men invited. April will be the “New Guy” Campout, with the date and place to be determined. Summer Camp this year will be at Goshen Scout Reservation, Camp Olmstead, the week of July 18th through 25th.
It’s that time of year again! This is our major fundraiser every year and helps subsidize camping fees, provide scholarships for camping, and buys and repairs Troop equipment. This is just a heads-up, and further details will be posted as soon as I have them. Dates for fliers and deliveries can be found on the Troop 11 Calendar. Any questions can be directed to mulch @ troop11bsa . org (remove the extra spaces when you email) . MORE TO FOLLOW!
If you click on over to the Calendar page, you’ll see a new Google calendar. I finally figured out how to embed it in a WordPress page . It’s a little easier to update and a bit cleaner looking than the old one.
Hope everyone had a great holiday season. Seemed like it was a long one this year which made it especially hard to get going yesterday.
This Thursday we get rolling for 2010 with a PLC meeting and RAN. Hope everyone can make it. The PLC has some planning to do for February and March. I will get some info out to the RAN guys so they know what needs to be covered as well.
This month, the night of the 17th specificly, we will be holding a “Rock Gym Lock-In” at Peak Experiences in Richmond. Peak Experiences is a tremendous facility where the boys can learn to climb at all levels from total noviced to advanced. This will be an all nighter starting Sunday night and returning home Monday morning (the kids are out of school for MLK Day). I will send out a seperate e-mail with the permission slips attached. There are two, one for Troop 11 and the other for Peak Experiences, Also, we will need adults who can attend, My work situation has changed such that I cannot make it.
See you all on Thursday!
Well, Christmas is just behind us and New Year’s is coming soon. Troop meetings will resume January 7th of 2010. See you then! There is a video of the December COH and ScoutBucks Auction posted on the Chairman’s Blog page.
