Friends of Scouting – Consider a Donation

The Chickasaw Council is asking for donations to the Friends of Scouting program to help support the cost of the Scouting program, Camporees, summer camps, and providing Scouting to those who cannot afford it. They are offering a Centennial Award program to Troops that meet certain criteria, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Council. See the attached link to make a donation online ($10 minimum) that is credited to our Troop toward the award goals, and view a video about the Friends of Scouting Campaign:

Do a good turn and make your donation today!


BSA Swim Check

The BSA swim check for our Troop will be Tuesday, April 14th at the Germantown Athletic Club, 1801 Exeter, in place of our regular Troop meeting. The cost will be $5 per person, if not a member of the Germantown Athletic Club. Please pay the $5 as soon as possible, if not a member of GAC. Passing the swim check is required for all Scout and adults who participate in any water activities with the Troop – swimming, canoeing, kayaking, etc. If you haven’t been swimming since last summer, make plans to get some swim practice in before the swim check.


Health Forms Due April 30th

Health Forms Parts A, B and C need to be updated annually and are due by April 30th to Mr. Ralph for Scouts and adults. Part C is required for summer camp and the Washington DC trip for Scouts and adults and requires a physician signature, so make your doctor appointments now. We encourage all Scouts to have Part C completed, whether attending summer camp or not. All adults attending campouts should also complete Parts A & B. Please also keep a copy of the form you turn in for your records. The form can be downloaded from this link -
