Northern Tier 2014 Update and Payment #1

Scouts (and Parents):

On behalf of the Troop I have made a deposit payment to Northern Tier to hold our crew spots for July 2014 adventure. If you haven't already paid your $100/person deposit please get it to me. Call me, email me or send to me. See info below.

Payment #1

After the deposit we need to make Payment #1 to Northern Tier on October 1st. To the avoid the troop being in a cash negative for the trip, please submit a $300 payment in the next 2 weeks.

Joseph Howard's Eagle Project

Hello again everyone,

I'm sorry that my last post was posted just the day before the time I wanted people. Thank you to those who did respond though.

In trying to not make the same mistake, I am looking for more people working on the benches for the following days: Tuesday, August 13 at 10am-12pm; Thursday, August 15 at 6:30pm-around 8pm; Thursday, August 22 at 6:30pm-around 8pm; and Friday, August 23 at 6:30pm-8pm. All will be at my house, 1260 Almond Dr., Troy, MI 48098.

Joseph Howard's Eagle Project

Hello again everybody.

I am still continuing work on my eagle project and I plan on continuing tomorrow, Friday August 9th. I will be having people stain the wood for the benches then.

If you are willing to help, please contact me at (248)-404-8972. I may not be able to take everyone, as too many would stop work from being done, but I would be thankful for anyone willing to help.

Be sure to wear clothes that you wouldn't mind getting stain on and be sure to contact me if you plan to come. This will occur at my house, 1260 Almond Dr. in Troy at 6:30

Next Board of Review 6/3

The next Board of Review will be Monday, June 3. This is the last BoR before our Court of Honor on June 9th. We will meet at Abiding Presence Church on Walton Blvd. (the Committee meeting will take place at the same time across the hall). If you have completed your Scoutmaster Conference and are ready for a Review, contact Scott Guest our BoR Scribe.
