Troop 48 Update - 10/19/14

Posted on Sun, Oct 19, 2014

Reminder – Greenery and Popcorn orders due Tuesday, October 28th

Please sell as much greenery and popcorn as you can! Scouts will earn 60% of the profits in their Scout Bucks accounts.

Greenery orders and money are due to Gina and Roger Eddleman by October 28th

Popcorn orders are due to Ross Earl by October 28th (money can be turned in when popcorn is delivered around 11/13)

Thanks to all who worked the Popcorn Show & Sell – we sold $975 of popcorn and received $202 in donations!


Merit Badge Classes – Sign up on 10/21 & 10/28

On Saturday, November 1, a class for the Aviation merit badge will be offered at Hernando Air Park and Scouts will be able to complete the entire merit badge. Those interested need to pay $7 to Mr. Parsels by this Tuesday, 10/21. The Scout will be able to fly  in an airplane if his parent is present (no exceptions). Parents attending will also need to sign up by 10/21 and pay $7. We will meet at the Ralph Moak garage at the church at 8 am and drive to the event that begins a 9 am. A pizza lunch will be served. The end time will depend on how many Scouts participate. Scouts should wear Class A uniforms without neckerchiefs and bring a water bottle, folding chair, pen and paper.


If you are interested in the Pets or Robotics merit badges, please meet Mr. Rook on October 28th at 6:30 pm at the church to discuss the requirements and work out a class schedule. Those interested should read through the requirements prior to the meeting (see links below). At least one parent will need to volunteer to attend each class, so we have two-deep leadership. Please contact Mr. Rook if you have any questions at or (901) 860-1549.
