Hello Parents, There will be a Friends of Troop 24 meeting during the time your boy is at his next Troop meeting. This past July the Troop road trip to Gettysburg was a great time for everyone and was years of hard work by Lisa Stors, Julie Griswold, Jim Scott and other current & past parents. We wish to continue their success but FOT24 needs your specialty. Some parents are great with finances/numbers, some with contacts, some with creativity, some with great persuasive/communication skills etc… If you can’t give a lot of time no problem but we just need your expertise in helping to spreading the word. Here’s what we’re thinking…a golf outing Sunday, July 15 at Chemawa in North Attleborough to raise money towards future major events/trips. Come hear more about FOT24 and we can talk at the next Troop meeting about ideas sponsors, golfers, raffles etc…

Good evening, I have been in contact with the committee in regards to the impending storm on Wednesday into Thursday. And we have decided to cancel this week’s meeting. Just to be safe. Mrs. Schaum is in the process of rescheduling the Merit Badge Counsler to begin The Personal Fitness merit badge class on Wednesday March 14th. Reminder to those enrolled in MBU those classes are scheduled to begin this weekend. See you all there.

Troop 24 welcomes new scout.

This past weekend Pack 24 had their Blue and Gold celebration and they also had their Arrow of Light Ceremony. Which we all know is where Cub Scouts who have completed all the requirements are awarded the highest honor in Cub Scouting, The Arrow of Light.

I was fortunate enough to attend that ceremony along with our Advancement Coordinator Mrs. Schaum. One of the scouts earning the Arrow of Light Joel. Has chosen Troop 24 to continue to his scouting journey.

Please join me in welcoming Joel to our troop.

I know I have been sending a lot of these out lately looking for help. But with all the effort that had been put in. The troop was able to purchase some new equipment we needed.

Just a quick reminder we DO have a meeting this coming Wednesday February 21st. Even though it is school vacation week. I am sure there will be last minute information and planning for next weekends fun/cabin trip.

Court of Honor

court-of-honor

The troop will be holding a Court of Honor in March sometime. This is when the troop recognizes the boys for Awards, Merit Badges, Positions of Leadership, etc they have earned since the last Court of Honor. This is something that only happens 3 or 4 times a year which makes a special time.  So if you have not been to one in a while or even never been to one. Plan to come, and spend some time with the Troop and see how busy not only your son has been but ALL the boys.

Check back Date and time to be announced soon!!
