A Scout is Trustworthy: Please return old merit badge pamphlets to the troop library.
Bring them to the meeting this Thursday. Other Scouts are in need of these materials.
A Scout is Helpful: If you have merit badge books that you own, consider giving them to the Troop. Other Scouts will benefit from your generosity.
Here is a useful link to merit badge and rank worksheets:
The worksheets are optional tools that can help Scouts organize notes, listen actively, and document their work.
You are welcome to borrow any Merit badge pamphlets(books) from our Troop Library. Additional Merit badge pamphlets(books) are available at your local Scout Shop or online at ScoutStuff.org.

The course is designed to provide Scouts (and adult leaders) with a more in-depth training experience than their Troop/Crew training by providing supplemental leadership skill sessions. Youth and Adult leaders may attend.
There is no rank requirement. All Scouts are welcome. Speak with the Scoutmaster and get his signature.
Registration Fee: $30.00 if registered and paid prior to October 28th. ($35.00 after Oct 28th)

Our Scoutmaster, Mr. D’Elia will procure all of the ingredients for the following recipies:
· Cinnamon/raisin rolls
· Apple Cobbler
· Chicken and dumplings
We are stationed at the Twins cabins. If you would like to camp overnight – you can do so in the cabins. Please show your scout spirit and respond to the Scoutmaster, Mr. D’Elia via email as soon as possible if you are able to help out. If you know nothing about Dutch oven cooking – that’s perfect, you will be an expert by the end of the day. You can come one or both days, just let us know. Your help will lead to the success of the event! If you have not been camping yet this year – we need to see you there, NO MATTER YOUR RANK!

Why Sell Popcorn?
• Scouts gain confidence, salesmanship and communication skills, and a sense of accomplishment. The popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn, it’s about promoting Scouting and the Scouting ideals!
• It is an opportunity for all Scouts to earn monies towards their Scouting expenses.
• The popcorn sale helps the Council raise money for improving the summer camp facilities/building new camp locations, offering more extensive training for our volunteer leaders and members, and helping us get to know and serve the needs of our volunteers and Units better.
