Webelos Day Outing
October 27, 2016

It’s fast approaching -- the chance to show off what Troop 4 is like for Webelos I and Webelos II. Show them how much fun we have! Show them what a day is like on an outing! We’re heading to Lapham Peak and over the next month you’ll need to plan what activities we’ll do.

Cost: $4 / person -- Permission slips are out.

Planning Lock-In
October 27, 2016

We’re running out of events! Get ready to decide what we’re doing in 2017! The suggestion box will be out starting with the August Troop Meetings. Put your suggestions in the box! Outing suggestions will be handed out at the beginning of October for research and then you’ll get to vote on your favorites!

Cost: $2 / person -- FREE if you go to the Webelos Day Outing! Permission slips are available.

** Bring a large/family size bag of whatever goody you want to share **

Soon after the Planning Lock-in, there will be a parents meeting during the troop meeting to announce the 2017 calendar and schedule. Watch your email for more information and the date!

Cobia Submarine
December 16-17, 2016

Our last outing for 2016 is an overnight on the Cobia Submarine! Permission slips have been out but there is still time to sign up!

Cost: $60 / person due by October 25.

Highway Cleanup

The final clean up has been rescheduled for Friday, October 28, 2016 -- before any boys get picked up from the Planning Lock-in. We should be done by 9:30 am.

Packets due back: October 25, 2016

It’s that time of year again! Time to recharter with the troop for 2017! Recharter packets will be handed out at the October 11 troop meeting. Please verify your information and return your packets and dues to the troop by October 25, 2016.

The troop is also transitioning to Scoutbook -- an online tracking program. Some of you may be familiar with Scoutbook from Packs or having a personal family account. With recharter, if you already have a Scoutbook account, please give the full name or email the account is under so we don't accidentally make another account for you.
