Good evening Troop 103,
Williamsburg United Methodist Church is doing a Shred-It event again this year at the Church and they have asked for our support!
It is on September 26 from 9:00 a.m. until noon. I am looking for a adult and 5-6 scouts to support this effort. The scouts will be unloading cars for participants.
Yours in Scouting,
Dear Parents and Scouts,
The Popcorn Season is almost upon us again and I am looking forward to another successful year. This season, Trails End is working with our local council to offer bonuses to Troops that exceed a certain goal. I think we can achieve this goal but will of course need your help to make it happen.
“Show and Sell” type events, where Scouts/Parents organize a sale at a local business with their permission, are very popular and usually very effective. If there are parents/guardians who would like to take on the responsibility of organizing these events that would be really helpful.
I will be available to provide popcorn, collect money, and answer questions but the timing/location/participants would be your decision. Most local businesses are very receptive to the idea but obviously need phone calls and plenty of lead time.
I look forward to hearing from you with any questions.
Enjoy the rest of summer.
All parents and scouts,
As the end of the year approaches, we need to account for all troop gear.
Please look through your garage, shed, storage room, and attic to find and return troop camping gear. We are missing a couple of tents ($$$$$) for sure, but we also are looking for missing tent poles, tent bags, pole bags, tarps, tent knuckles, cookware, or any owned by the troop.
If you find any of these items please drop them off at the church, no questions will be asked. You can either bring them by on Monday night or simply place them next to the scout closet (next to the stage) whenever you would like.
The troop has grown a fair amount in the last three years and it critical that we have all our camping gear in working order so that we can begin planning for next year. Keeping us moving takes a huge amount of equipment, please help us insure that we have that equipment and that it is in working order.
Thank you for your help.
