January Campout and Klondike Derby - Jan 27th- Jan 29th 
We are looking for more campers for the January campout and Klondike Derby.  So far only 8 scouts have signed up. Four of those scouts are sled team age. We will need a few more scouts 8th grade and under to help guide the sled team through the course. Please register on the website as soon as possible!

Monday Dec 12th Weekly Meeting - Special Event
Monday December 12th we will be embarking on a very moving journey. We will be watching the HBO movie “Taking Chance”. With Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day so close together, I thought it appropriate to learn more about the final journey home of our fallen heroes. I have seen the movie,  I could see it another ten times and it would still touch my heart every time. (tissue alert) It is an amazing true story told by Lieutenant Colonel Michael Stobl about his experiences escorting the body of Lance Corporal Chance Phelps back to his family. His experiences along the way are amazing, moving, and give us a sense of pride as we learn just how reverent we are as a country toward those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us. All scouts and their families past and present are welcome to join us. Yes, we will have popcorn and drinks!

2017 Scout College (Feb 11th and 25th)
From Mr. Garvin: Saturday February 11th and Saturday February 25th will be The Old Colony District merit badge scout college. This is an opportunity for scouts to earn multiple merit badges or get a start some of the more time consuming Eagle required badges. Attached to this announcement is the list of merit badges offered. Please take a look at the selections carefully. Some have pre-requisites and some have other requirements. Select your merit badge choices and the time periods you wish to take them(1st,2nd, 3rd). Email or hand me those choices no later than Dec. 18th. I will sign everyone up for their choices on a first come first serve basis. The sooner you get me your choices, the better chance you have of getting what you want.
