Welcome back. We have a great year planned ahead. Your annual dues will be collected. Bring your parents to the CSUMC this Thursday September 13 @ 7:30 pm. We will recognize the Scouts who earned merit badges from Summer Camp, and those who earned a new Rank since our last award ceremony.
Return any Troop equipment (tents, merit badge books, etc.) so we can prepare for the Traveling Camporee in Williamsburg.
Class A Uniforms
Please bring your checkbook to pay your annual dues.
French Toast Tickets will be distributed at a later meeting.
While the cost of everything is going up, we decided to hold the registration fee at $100 – the same as last year. When you look at the great programs our Troop provides for a year of activities, you will see the value of our program for your young adult.
Troop 160’s sponsoring organization, the Rotary Club of the Abingtons, is conducting their annual Taste of the Abingtons.
This year’s TASTE OF THE ABINGTONS will be held at the Ramada in Clarks Summit on Sunday, Sept. 30 from 5 to 8 PM. Leah Rudolph has tickets! They are still only $25 for an enjoyable evening of food and fun. Let her know ASAP how many tickets you would like and she can get them too you. Proceeds benefit many community projects. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call her directly at ( 570) 586-0864

The road is also known as PA Rt. 307 and Winola Road.
As a point of reference the park is adjacent to Clarks Summit State Hospital, and is a short distance from Abington Heights High School.
You can forward this webpage right now to your friends so they can make arrangements to get to the cookout.
Troop 160 will proudly march as a group in the 2017 Clarks Summit Memorial Day Parade. We will be an impressive sight with everyone in their full Class A uniforms. Encourage your Scout friends to come so we have a fantastic showing.
Meet at the Clarks Summit Elementary School on Monday at 10:30AM. Parade steps off promptly at 11am and ends up at the VFW. Parents may pick up their Scouts at the VFW at 11:30. Everyone is welcome to stay for the noon flag raising ceremony.
On Friday morning Tom Tone’s family lost the family farm barn and its contents, including some farm animals, due to a fire. They are in the middle of finalizing their next step in the rebuilding process and could use our help. We are going to ask our older scouts, age 14 and older, to help at the Tone farm by cleaning up, sorting and disposing of debris into dumpsters. Boots, long pants, gloves are required. Assistance with drinks/lunch/refreshments etc. would be helpful.
Scouts and Adults age 14 and older will meet Saturday at 8am at the Tone Farm 708 Blacksmith Drive, Falls, PA
Join us for a 5 mile hike this Saturday.
We will meet at the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church on the Morgan Highway at 1pm. We plan to explore the
Lackawanna State Park.
Bring a quart of water and good hiking shoes/boots. A Scout is always prepared with Rain gear and warm clothes.
This is an excellent opportunity for Scouts to complete this requirement to earn the rank of 2nd Class.
