Troop Birthday Party: Sunday, March 29, 2015. The troop will be 16 years old on April 1. We are celebrating the 16 years of success on 3/29. This is going to be a real birthday party with cake, ice cream, punch, and games. We also have a DJ coming to officiate the event. Along with all troop members, we’re asking all the former Eagle Scouts and adult leaders to come to the troop meeting from 4-6 PM and help us celebrate.  Help us spread the word!!

Service Hours: Grace Episcopal Church, 7111 Price Pike, Florence, KY 41042 is looking for assistance on March 28th from 9:30 AM-12:45 PM. Duties include setting up tables and assisting with loading food that is donated. This project helps the homeless and people who are less fortunate. This is not a troop event but, you could make it a personal challenge to help. This is a perfect project for NHS and other community service requirements.

Pancake Fundraiser: Thanks to all scouts, adults for volunteering at the Pancake Fundraiser. It turned out to be the best ever. Once we get the final counts from the treasurer we will announce how we did.

Yearbooks: If you signed up for a yearbook the troop purchased one for you.  They will be at the next troop event or meeting for pickup. They are $20…

Survey Fundraiser: April 14th for Adults 18-65+

The troop has an opportunity to raise over $1000 for equipment by conducting an in-person survey. The survey is for adults only and requires you to show up in person. The survey will be at Acree Hall from 3:30-7:00 PM and it is administered by Various Views Marketing Research and the results will help PG&E. We are asking each scout to recruit 5 adults for the survey. This will greatly help out the troop with purchasing equipment that we really need. The survey takes 15-30 minutes. We’re not asking for money but, something that you can give for free, your time. Pass the below link to others in your family and let’s get as many people signed up as possible to help. These fundraisers also help us keep our dues in perspective.
