There is an in-person meeting Monday night! Please note that we switched to summer hours so the meeting will start at 7:30 PM. There is a chance of rain in the afternoon (typical summer day) but we will play it by ear!
Many of the older scouts are still at Philmont so we will work on Flag requirements for ranks up to first class.
For those that went to Goshen, we will hand out “blue cards” for both your completed and partial merit badges and for the Trailhead scouts we will review your completed requirements.

Eagle Projects – Did you know we have several scouts currently working on their Eagle projects? Here are some updates
From Patrick Hoover – Donations needed!
Hi all! I am Patrick Hoover, a life scout in the troop, and am looking for donations for my Eagle Scout project. For my project I am building three picnic tables and fixing the others in the back lot of First Baptist church (where our troop meetings are currently). The total cost to build and fix the picnic tables is $850 and I already have $425. I am planning to have this project on August 14th to ensure all returning scouts will have a place to sit during meetings and to allow for members of our community to use the back lot.
From Jack Ryder – Mark your calendars!
Mark your calendar to help build little food pantries on August 7th – details to come!
GENERAL TROOP MEETING INFO:
Wear your uniform! Bring a headlamp! Have a good time!
Blue Cards! Did you know that your Scoutmaster can email you a blue card? Just send me Mr. Ramirez an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)! Note that the SCOUT must request the blue card, not the parent!
