Upcoming News for December and January

Hello Troop,

Just as a quick  reminder to you all, there will not be a troop meeting next week (December 29), as schools will be closed. The last meting of the year is December 22. In other news, we have the Christmas tree pickup right at the start of January 2016, on Sunday the 3rd, so don’t forget about that. And on the second weekend of January (9-10) we have the cold (hopefully) toes trip! How exciting! I hope to see you all at the next meeting, and happy holidays.

Your friend, Patrick.

 

December 12-13: Central Rock Gym in Watertown

Our December trip will be indoor rock climbing at Central Rock Gym in Watertown.

Meet at the church at 5 PM on Saturday, December 12th. Bring clothes for indoor climbing (shorts, t-shirt). Bring a sleeping bag and water bottle.

We’ll return on Sunday morning at 9 AM.

Dinner and breakfast are provided by the troop.

Here is the troop permission slip.

It’s also critical that scouts complete and parents sign this online waiver.  There is no longer a paper document for the waiver.

Cost for the trip is $60.

Important Dates for 2015 Holiday Wreath Sales

Troop 18 Scouts and Families,

We are in the midst of our 2015 Holiday Wreath Sales Fundraiser and order forms are due Wednesday, November 10. The Wreath Flyer and Order Form are attached below.

As you know, this fundraiser is very important for the troop and the individual scouts to earn money credits toward their future scouting activities.

To earn scout credits, every scout will be required to sell 5 items during the pre-sale period. For every item sold after the first 5, Scouts will earn a $5 credit per item that can be applied to scout activities – including the ski trip, summer camp and other scout trips. So, the more you sell, the more money you can apply to your future trip expenses. Additionally, Scouts who sell 5 wreaths or more receive a $25 troop dues credit. For scouts who opt out or do not sell at least 5 items will pay the full dues.

Important Dates:
Tues, Nov 10 – Wreath order forms are due to Cindy Elliott.
Wreath totals in email or Copied Forms can be scanned and emailed to elliott_cindy@verizon.net or you can take a picture with your phone and text to me at 860-933-8229.

Sun, Nov 22, Wreath Pick Up – 10am to 1pm – Wreath and swag decorating and pick up at Elliott’s House (12 Pond St, Hopkinton 508-435-3616) 10am to Noon – all Scouts and Families decorate own wreaths

Sat, Nov 28 – Craft Fair – Additional Wreath are available for additional sales

Please contact me with any questions at (860) 933 8229 or by email at elliott_cindy@verizon. net.
