The Troop will be having a meeting this Friday 24 May. As usual, the meeting will begin at 7:30. Ms Georgianne will be there to collect permission forms for the Memorial Day service project and for Special Olympics.
25 May, Troop 746 will perform a short service project placing flags on graves at the cemeteries in the Towson area. We are going to meet at St.Joes and then go to the American Legion Hall in Towson.
This year the Troop will be volunteering to help out at the Special Olympics at Towson University on both Saturday 8 June and Sunday 9 June. On Saturday Scouts would be expected to meet at the Scout Building at 8:45 AM and would return around 3:00PM. On Sunday, we will meet at 8:00AM and return around 2:00PM. This is a wonderful experience and the Troop usually has nearly every scout participate.
Every three years the troop takes a two-week trip to the Western U.S. visiting many National Parks and attending a BSA summer camp. Any scout who has attended a week long BSA summer camp is eligible to go on the trip. The next trip is scheduled for the summer of 2014. While this seems a long time away, the initial planning must begin this early. If you are curious, take look at the photos from 2004, 2008 and 2011. We also are seeking volunteers for the Out West 2014 trip planning committee. Troop 746 scouts selected a Pacific Northwest trip.
If a Scout is going on one of our trips, it is imperative that an up-to-date Boy Scout Medical Form be completed and on file. This is the complete version that was just approved on 3 September 2012. Chris Shoul manages these forms.
The next regularly scheduled committee meeting will be on 12 June at 7:00 PM at the Parish Center. All Scout parents are invited to attend the Troop committee meeting.
If there are any issues that need to be addressed please contact Mrs. Kathy by phone.
According to Troop 746 guidelines, if the weather forces a cancellation of school activities, then all Scout activities will also be cancelled.
