Troop 330 Annual Wreath Sales

The scouts sell wreaths and holiday evergreen swags for our annual fundraiser. Each scout earns the net proceeds on his individual sales which are put into his scout account. Scout accounts are used for scouting costs such as annual dues, weekend camp, special events and summer & high adventure camps. Ambitious scouts are able to fund their entire scouting year.

Information and sales sheets will be provided at the September 19th troop meeting.  Sales sheets and checks made out to “Troop 330” (No cash!) must be turned in to either Mrs. Carlson or Mrs. Tidstrom at the October 24th troop meeting. No late forms can be accepted so if you cannot attend the meeting, make arrangements to turn your forms in early.

Wreaths will be picked up starting at 4:00 on Monday November 13 so they can be delivered by Thanksgiving. Specific details on the pickup will be provided later, depending on the number of sales we may need to stagger the scouts for pickup.

Troop 330 invites local Webelos to attend!

Troop 330 is extending a warm invite to local Webelos I & II to some of our next events. These give you a chance to see how the troop functions and complete some Arrow of Light requirements.

The fall Court of Honor is September 26th at 6:30 in the Matthew/Mark/Luke rooms on the lower level of St. Hubert’s Catholic Church/School. We will be congratulating Adam Seward on earning his Eagle rank. We will also be awarding the rank and merit badges earned over the summer. The Sea Base crews will also be sharing some of their adventures. It is a great COH to attend to get a sense of the activities of our troop.

On Tuesday October 17th we will be cleaning our Adopt-a-Road stretch of Galipin Blvd. Meet at the Kwik Trip on the corner of Arboretum & Galipin. This outdoor event goes on rain or shine.

Septmber 15 - 17 Blue Mounds State Park Tepee Camping

We will be heading southwest to Blue Mounds State Park for the weekend of September 15th. Scouts will have the unique experience of staying in tepees and possibly sighting the bison herd that lives in the park.  We will be working on the Indian Lore merit badges, scouts hoping to complete it should come prepared.

The cost is $20/scout and $10/adult. Scouts will need all the fall camping gear, your scout handbook has lists. Each patrol will need a head cook.
