Board Game Night!!!

Posted by jaypullen on Nov 29 2016 - 6:39am
  • It's the annual Troop 65 board game night.  What does that mean, you ask????
    • Scouts come in your pajamas (or loungeware, or sweats, or whatever is comfy)  big, obnoxious slippers are encouraged!
    • Bring a board game to play.  Do you have a favorite board game you play at home that you could bring?  We'll have the whole hour and a half.  At any moment there will be 6 or 7 different games going on.
    • No electronics--this is old school.  The electronics camp is coming up in January, this is for board games.  (by the way, sign up now for the electronics camp!)
    • No flag ceremony, no announcements, no skills training...just games
  • Committee meeting for the adults at 7pm.   All parents welcome and encouraged to attend.  This is a chance to see what's going on with the troop, give input, or just listen.
  • Sign up for broomball now.  There will be no troop meeting Dec 8th, and instead we'll meet at the Mt Lebo rec center on Friday from 9pm-10pm for a rousing hour of broomball.
  • Court of Honor will be December 15th.  Make sure you finish up your rank requirements and ask for your scoutmaster's conference.

*Troop Committee Meeting this Thursday eve, Dec 1st @ 7pm in the library (the room off from where the boys meet).

All committee meetings are open to all parents. Please stop in and see what goes on 'behind the scenes' of Troop 65.  It sounds much more exciting that what it is, but we welcome parents at any time to see what it's all about.  It's also a great opportunity to provide any feedback you may have and to get involved!

If you have any questions about the committee or about getting involved in any way please call.

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by jaypullen on Nov 24 2016 - 2:13pm

To all the Troop 65 scouts and families, I want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving!

Amongst the hustle and bustle...the beginning of the holiday season, now is a time to reflect on how blessed we are to have what we have.  Before sitting down to your Thanksgiving bounty, I would encourage each of us to take a moment and reflect upon all the things you have to be thankful for, and send out positive thoughts and prayers to all those around the world as well as in our own community that do not have the security of a home, or have to constantly worry about where their next meal is coming from.  I don't say that to make anyone feel guilty, but to feel thankful for what we have been blessed with while not forgetting that it is also our responsibility to be helpful and kind to those around us.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Mr Pullen

Successful Wilderness Survival Camp

Posted by jaypullen on Nov 7 2016 - 6:51pm

Well, everyone made it home after our Wilderness Survival camp this year...and with all their fingers and toes!  When that happens, I call it a successful camp! :-)  The shelters were all fantastic and I think were stronger this year than in any years past.  They also had less time to work on them, so Kudo's to everyone on a job well done!  Check out some pictures on the PHOTO ALBUMS page under 2016
