Special Troop Meeting location this week - Night Hike at Stony Brook Conservation Land/East Boston Camps

Posted on Nov 15 2017 - 10:14pm

This Week's Troop meeting will be held at the Stony Brook Conservation Land (also known as East Boston Camps).  The Troop will have a night hike around the camps and enjoy a camp fire and hot chocolate at the end of the hike.

All scouts should meet at the Main camp area within the Stony Brook Conservation property.  The main gate will be open so you can drive down and park near the main camps.  Please arrive on-time (7:00pm) and come prepared with a flashlight, warm clothing, water, and good shoes/hiking boots.  Rain gear is also encouraged as this event will be held rain or shine (moonlight?).  

This event is also open to local Arrow of Light Scouts to come and join the troop for this hike!  

New Troop Neckerchiefs are here!

Posted on Nov 15 2017 - 9:59pm

 Our new Troop Neckerchiefs are here.  Thanks to Max G's hard work the new neckerchiefs sport the new Troop logo.  If you missed last week's meeting and didn't get your new neckerchief please talk to Max or Mr. McKeen at this week's meeting.

Change of date - Next Merit Badge Monday is December 4th - Time to sign-up

Posted on Nov 15 2017 - 9:59pm

Due to some conflicts the next Merit Badge Monday has been postponed until December 4th.  On the 4th Mr. Porter will be continuing the Programming merit badge.  Communications, and Family Life can be offered if enough scouts sign up.

Merit Badge Mondays are an opportunity for scouts to connect with merit badge counselors to start new merit badges or to complete those pervasively pesky partials that seem to proliferate profusely. 

So sign-up now and sign-up early! (and of course I know some will sign-up late)...
