Our Flag service project to take down the flags in Eagle River will be Monday, July 6.  We will meet at the Jitters parking lot at 6PM.  Please bring a 6ft ladder if you have one.  Parents- Since most of our Scouts are away at summer camp we will need your help with this flag takedown.

Name: Update for June 30

This Tuesday, June 30, is a regular meeting and dress is Class B.  We have a lot to do so we need to start on time.  Scouts who are going to summer camp should attend this meeting.  Scouts will determine tent partners and receive tents from the Quartermasters.  Scouts will pack the trailer and check out Merit Badge books from the Troop Librarian if needed.  New Scouts should also bring their Scout books, for if there is time, the Troop Instructor and Troop Guide will sign off on any completed rank advancement requirements.  If you have not paid the $60 for the bus, please bring it Tuesday.                                         

Please remember that there is a summer camp pack list posted on our Troop website.

Service projects:  We have our Flag service project this Wednesday and clean up for the July 3rd Lions Club Independence Day celebration this weekend.

Kennicott Bike Trip:  This Tuesday there will also be a meeting for the Kennicott Bike trip at some time during our regular Troop meeting.

Name: Update for June 23

This Tuesday, June 23, is a regular meeting and dress is Class B.  We will begin the meeting by having a service project to clean up trash around the Lions Club.  Afterwards we will take advantage of the summer by having an outdoor game arranged by the Bears patrol.

Summer camp is fast approaching and there are some items that need to be addressed

First, you must get your medical records forms completed and turned in to Mr. Bath as soon as possible.  You cannot go to summer camp without a current completed physical.

Second, the cost for the bus to summer camp is $60.  Please bring that in ASAP.

Last, if you have not turned in your merit badge choices to Mrs. Moore you must get those in as some merit badge classes have limited spaces.

Our summer camp coordinator this year is Tanya Tyson.  She will be available on June 30 to answer any last minute questions or if you need an answer sooner please contact her by email at

Good Luck to our Scouts and Scout leaders that are heading off to Philmont this weekend!

This Tuesday, June 16, will be a PLC meeting for Scout leaders (Jr. Leaders, Patrol leaders and Scribes).  Dress is Class B.  Scouts who have gear from our last campout (tents, Patrol boxes, etc.) should turn it in this Tuesday as our Quartermasters will be present to receive it.  (Make sure that your gear is clean and dry before you turn it in.)  We will decide our activities for the next few meetings, so come with ideas.
