At our Next Troop Meeting we will be reviewing the Astronomy Merit Badge. If anyone has a telescope that would be a nice addition to the instruction for the Scouts.

On Saturday, October 8th our Chartered Organization, First United Methodist Church of Riverside, is hosting a Fall Festival to show the community what is Great about their Church. Setup is around 9:30AM with the event running from 11:0AM – 1:00PM. We would like to see ALL Scouts and adults show up to promote the Troop and answer any questions. This is a Great recruiting tool plus a supporter for the Church who have done so much for us. Come in FULL Class “A” including your Merit Badge sash and Order of the Arrow sash if you have one. Flyers will be available to hand out. We will have signups at the next Troop meeting. If you can only give an hour or two it would be appreciated!

The next Court of Honor that was to be held on Monday, September 26th has been POSTPONED until Monday, October 17th. We have several scouts who are finishing up on some rank requirements so we want to give them this extra time so they can be presented with their rank at the Court of Honor. There will be a flyer passed out at an upcoming meeting with details.

Popcorn Sales will run from  August 27th – October 10th. All orders and monies are due back at our Troop meeting on October 10th. Popcorn will be available for pickup on November 5th. Time and location TBD. Information and order forms including the ability to order on line this year are available at the Scout House.

The Troop is in the planning stages of organizing a trip to Northern Tier in Minnesota. This is a BSA High Adventure Camp. A youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by date of participation. We need to get commitments in order to know how many slots we need to put in for. If you are interested please sign up ASAP. A deposit is due now.

During the month of September all Bass Pro Shops are offering Fishing and Rifle Shooting merit Badge classes on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings. For more information contact your local Bass Pro Shop. If you decide to take advantage of this please see the Scoutmaster for a Blue Card BEFORE you go.

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
(Scout Law)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
(Scout Oath)

As an American, I will do my best to -
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
