MEETING TIME CHANGE – August 28

Troop 265,

As you probably know by now we are excluded from St. Elizabeth’s Hall for the next few weeks while they work on mold abatement. In the meantime we are meeting at Izzy’s farmhouse.

Due to the sunset happening tomorrow at 7:55pm we will be moving up the start of the meeting from 7:30pm to 7:00pm.

To repeat, tomorrow we will be meeting from 7-8pm outdoors at Izzy’s farmhouse.

Please remember to bring your scoutbook, notebook, and something to write with to every meeting. Also, it would be a good idea to bring yourself something to sit on if you don’t wish to sit on one of the campfire stumps.

Here is a list of upcoming activities/events in the near future:

Community Service Backpack Supplies

We had a number of donations tonight – special thanks to the Schmidts, Donohues and Koch families…please let me know if can help with any of the ‘Remaining’ supplies over the next couple weeks.

Tonight, I also asked if any of the Scouts can commit to service hours on Saturday April 28th. The district needs help in sorting donations and stuffing backpacks. Let me know if your scout can work that morning…location is the Broadmoor Technical Center.  Please contact Lynne Milum for more information.

Troop/PLC Meeting Tuesday, March 6th

We will be combining our PLC/Troop meeting this week. With Spring Break for many schools being the week of the 13th we will be combining these two functions into one meeting like we did in February. There will be no meeting on the 13th.

We have several Scouts who need Boards of Review so trained adults and Star/Life/Eagle Scouts we really need your help at this meeting. Please make an effort to attend.

Yours in Scouting,

Andy Crow
Scoutmaster, Troop265

Eagle Court of Honor this Sunday

We are proud to announce the Eagle Court of Honor for Thomas (TJ) Baker and Gabriel Lopez. 

Please attend if you are able.  TJ and Gabriel would like to see many Troop 265 scouts that have been alongside them through the years.   Also, many Troop 265 adult leaders have been instrumental to these young men.  Let’s all join in celebration on February 18, 2018 at 1:00 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. 

Remember Scouts, this is a Class A Uniform event.

Troop 265 Welcomes SEVEN new Scouts

Pack 3400 at Rosehill Elementary crossed 7 Webelos over to Troop 265 today. We had a contingent of Troop 265 Scouts there to receive them. It was a mix from Tenderfoot all the way to Eagle.

We’re looking forward to welcoming the new Scouts at their first meeting on February 20th.

Remember! Troop elections will be on the 20th as well. Get cracking on those speeches, candidates!

Mr. Crow
Scoutmaster, Troop 265
