Don't Forget to Make Your Friends of Scouting Donations

Posted on May 19 2018 - 7:57pm

We are asking every Family in our Troop to make a donation to Friends of Scouting.  FOS is not a Troop fundraiser, it is your opportunity to support local Scouting and help cover the many unseen costs that it takes to run the Scouting program - things like advancement records, camps, insurance, training, Scout Shops, and Council offices, to name just a few.  It costs Orange County Council approximately $300 annually per Scout to make our program happen.  The Scouting program gives us much to be grateful for, so please consider giving towards this worthy cause.  You can support Friends of Scouting online at http://ocbsa.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1177035&supid=442782138 or during our Court of Honor on Tuesday, May 29.  As an added bonus, every patrol that has 100% participating by June 5 will receive a pizza party at the June 12 Troop Meeting. Thank you for supporting your son, our unit, and the Scouting program!

 Thank you to everyone who helped to make this year's Merit Badge Day our most successful day ever.  We earned over $7000, had everything run smoothly,  and managed to  be cleaned up and off campus in record time so the church could host the funeral! We could not have done all this without each and every one of you. This is what makes our troop the model for the district!  A special thank you to Maria Dolliver for all your hard work coordinating this year's event.  

Merit Badge Day is almost here!

Merit Badge Day is only a few days away!  Scouts - remember to get your blue cards signed this week.  Also check your email for messages from your merit badge counselors.  Parents - you also need to check your email for messages regarding your volunteer shifts.  If you are making a donation, please bring your items to Tuesday's Troop meeting.  We still need several large ice chests and easy ups too, so sign up on Shutterfly  if you have one we can use.  If you have any questions, please contact Maria Dolliver at meritbadge2018@troop723.us.  Thank you to everyone for making this event a success - we could not do it without every one of you!
