We still need additional volunteers for the popcorn fundraiser! This is a great volunteer position for a parent in the troop. If you are willing, please contact Mr. Tehan at Scoutmaster@troop555.net

For the youth going on the Troop Planning Weekend, please bring something to write on and to write with. Make sure you bring your ideas and the troop's ideas.

No PLC on Thursday. We will discuss this during the planning weekend.

There are still Jamboree Openings Left! The Council has committed to sending 9 Troops of 36 youth each to the Jamboree. Check outhttp://www.bsajamboree.org/

August 28-30 we will be going on our kick-back camping weekend. We are going to Lake Gaston.

Advice from the Scoutmaster: “It's as impossible to take back your words as it is to gather feathers scattered in the wind”
