We hope that everyone had a wonderful summer! It’s early September and that means two things. 1. Back to School, and 2. Back to Scouts! Our first troop meeting will be this Thursday, September 9th, at 7pm. We will be doing registration and scouts will be getting their awards from summer camp and other summer activities.
A couple of new items we will be working on this year are the Ceramics Merit Badge, and the Weather Merit Badge through Blue Hills Observatory. A few scouts have also begun working on the Genealogy Merit Badge. They’re learning a lot about their families and can answer some questions for any other boys who interested in this. For more information talk to the Scoutmaster or send us an email.
A new schedule has been posted on the troop calendar and we hope to see you this season! If you have any questions please let us know. Have a great year everyone & Be Prepared!
Hopefully everyone has had an excellent summer and is looking forward to the start of school after labor day. In keeping with this, our weekly meetings will be starting the on the 4th of September.
The sailing trip to Grape Island is coming up as well. We will be spending the weekend of September 19th doing all sorts of fun activities including; sailing, swimming, & exploring the island. We’ll need to know ASAP who’s going go so we know how many boats we need to borrow and what food to buy. So mark your calenders & see you at the meeting on the 4th!
