Archery Recruiting Event at Shelby Farms

The Council is having a recruiting archery event at Shelby Farms on Saturday, July 3, from 11 AM to 5 PM. They are asking for two adults and 2-3 Scouts to attend to promote Troop 48. The Cub Scout Pack that we usually get new Scouts from has disbanded, so we need to increase our recruiting efforts. A parent’s view on Scouts BSA and Troop 48 is all that is needed to promote membership. If you can assist with this, please contact Scoutmaster Brian Issing. There will be another archery recruiting event on Sunday, August 29 at Temple Israel.


Family Life Merit Badge

Mr. Bo Hormberg will be starting a class soon for the Family Life Merit Badge. If you are interested in starting this merit badge, please contact Mr. Hormberg at, and he will coordinate meeting times with the group.  Also, please contact Scoutmaster Brian Issing or First Assistant Scoutmaster John Dockstader to get approval and the blue card to begin the merit badge.


Committee Chair Position

I am stepping down as Committee Chair and John Campbell will be our new Committee Chair. I will continue to be a committee member and help with the transition. Thanks so much to everyone for your help and support!
