Troop 48 Update - 4/22/21

Posted on Thu, Apr 22, 2021

April 24 Service Project at Faith Presbyterian - Rescheduled to May 8

The weather forecast is calling for thunderstorms this Saturday, so we will postpone our service project to Saturday May 8. We will be spreading mulch in the flower beds at the church. Bring a mask, water bottle, shovel or bucket, and a wheel barrow if you have one. Wear work clothes (no uniforms). Scouts can earn service hours for rank requirements. We need several Scouts to sign up, so please help. All Scouts participating will be fed a lunch of individually wrapped items. Please sign up at the link if you can attend (both Scouts and adults).


In-Person Outdoors Troop Meeting this Tuesday – 7 PM-8 PM (weather permitting)

Please note that the troop meeting on April 27 will be only 1 hour, so please plan to pick up at 8 PM. Thanks to those who volunteered to clean the restrooms, the troop meetings starting in May will be 90 minutes and will go until 8:30 pm. Please note:

- Bring a chair, you may want to bring a water bottle, masks are required, wear Class A uniforms

- Final Skymont Payments are due

- Restroom clean-up volunteers are Melody Artz and Stephanie Hardin


Final Skymont Payments due April 27

Attached is a list of the merit badge fees that are due for each Scout by April 27. The final payment for adults of $15 is also due by April 27. You can pay online using PayPal or Plastiq, use Scout Bucks if you have an available balance, or pay in-person at the troop meeting (weather permitting).


May Campout

The May campout is changed from a canoe trip to a campout at Camp Currier. It will be on May 15-16, with drop off at 9 AM and pick-up at 1 PM. The cost is $20 per person and the campout fee and sign-up is due May 4. There will be rifle and shotgun shooting, and to cool off in the afternoon, we will be jumping off the boat dock using a PFD (personal flotation device). Each person will need a PFD, if you have some extra ones that the troop can borrow, please let Mr. Issing know. The troop has some PFDs also.


COVID-19 Vaccine Information

We would like to collect information on how many of our Scout leaders and Scouts age 16 or older have had the COVID-19 vaccination. We are hoping that this information will help the church make their decision to allow us to meet indoors. If you are willing to share this information, please email Kim Ridenhour that you are either “fully vaccinated” or “partially vaccinated and expect to be fully vaccinated by (date)”.  This is completely optional.
