Introducing the Troop Store

ClassACheck out the new Troop Store in the Resources section of the website.  Our inventory is currently small, but we expect it to grow over time.

As Scouts outgrow their uniforms please donate them to store.

At this time we just have a couple swapable items.  Eventually we’ll add items that can be purchased such as tee-shirts, etc.

Trolley Trail Hike

2015 Day HikeTroop 160 did a day hike along the new Trolley Trail from Clarks Summit to Glenburn on Sunday, April 12th, 2015.  The hike was an opportunity for incoming Webelo Scouts to join the Troop for a Troop activity as required for their Arrow of Light Award.

It was a beautiful day and the new trail is absolutely awesome.  Turnout from the Troop was better than expected.  The Scouts welcomed Webelos from Pack 152 who will be crossing over to Troop 160.

For more information on the Trolley Trail, go to the CountryWide Conservancy webpage.  The site includes a video of the trail taken via bike ride using a GoPro camera.

Logan Lombardo’s Eagle Project

On Saturday April 25th I will be having my Eagle project at the Chinchilla fire hall at 10 am. We will be painting the retaining wall for the fire hall. If you could make it to the project it would be greatly appreciated. There will be food and drinks provided upon completion.

Thank you hope you can make it.
