March Trip - WINTER Camping at Camp Resolute - Sign up this week!

Posted on Feb 13 2019 - 10:22pm

The March trip will be a camping weekend at Camp Resolute in Bolton.  While at Resolute the troop will take advantage of the weather conditions… Think SNOW!! If we have snow, we may do some sledding or other snow sports. If we don’t have snow, we’ll probably go on a hike, play games, or other fun activities. 

This will be tent camping at a time of the year when the weather will be “variable”.  Scouts should be prepared for cold weather. Warm sleeping bags and a good mattress pad will be needed along with appropriate clothing -- see more tips on sleeping warm below.

 

Next Merit Badge Monday February 25th

Posted on Feb 13 2019 - 10:21pm

The next Merit Badge Mondays session will be Monday February 25th from 7pm to 8:30pm.

Have a merit badge you want to work on?  If so please let Mr or Mrs McKeen know so we can be prepared.

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)...

Troop 437 Good Turns!

Posted on Feb 13 2019 - 10:19pm
Do a Good Turn Daily!  The Scout Slogan.  It is one of the defining values of a Scout.  Troop 437 is always looking for opportunity to give back to our community and help those who can use a helping hand.  We are creating a Remind communication list to help communicate opportunities when they arise that Scouts can help on.  Are you interested in hearing about opportunities to Do and Good Turn (and who wouldn't be)?  Simply follow the steps below to signup for the Troop's "437GoodTurns" Remind list and you will receive text messages, e-mail, or phone notifications when an opportunity arises.
 
The Troops first "Good Turn" endeavor is to help Mr and Mrs Bruno with snow shoveling this year.  Mr Bruno is a Veteran, a life long scouter, and the Troop's charter organization representative.  He has contributed countless hours towards the success of the Troop, the American Legion Post, and the larger scouting community.  We will be sending messages to the Remind list soliciting volunteers when there is shoveling to be done.  For most snow storms it should only take a couple of volunteers and if we share the work over the winter it should be easy to accomplish and will be a big help to Mr and Mrs Bruno.
 
If you know of opportunities that you think would be good for Troop 437 to help out with please let the Scoutmaster know.  
 
So by now I am sure you are wondering - How to I get on the 437GoodTurns Remind list? Well it is very simple - do one of the following:
  • By text message: Send "@437gt" to 81010
  • On the web: Go to http://rmd.at/437gt
  • Install and run the Remind app from your phone's app store
Sign up!  Help out!  Do a Good Turn!
