Path to Eagle Meeting - Wed., October 8, 2013, 7pm to 8:30pm

Posted by jrspencer on Sep 29 2014 - 2:47pm

Eagle Scout Candidates and Their Parents - 

mandatory "Path to Eagle" Presentation/Information Session is planned for all Scouts at the rank of STAR and above along with their parent, at the Glastonbury Riverfront Community Center on October 8, 2014 from 7 to 8:30pm. 

This is an extremly important meeting for those Scouts interested in, or currently pursuing the rank of Eagle, and is designed to help provide better insight and clarity to the seemingly confusing Eagle Scout Process.  We will be reviewing the Troop 156 and BSA Council requirements and policies and will be discuss the necessary forms and paperwork process that must be used along with answering any questions that people might have.

Scouts and Parents - Please read through and familiarize yourselves with the Eagle Scout Process Information provided under Menu/Eagle Scout Process and under Menu/Files/Eagle Documents on the Troops Website and bring any questions that you might have to the meeting. 

This meeting is scheduled in lieu of the Troop Meeting which has been cancelled due to Teacher Recognition Day.

Thanks

Posted by mcanning on Sep 23 2014 - 8:12pm

Hello everyone. My eagle scout project will take place this Thursday September 25th at Wickham Park from 9:30am to 3:30pm near the front gate. The gates to the park open at 9:30 AM.  
We will be taking down invasive plants by the front entrance. 
Be sure to wear a long sleeved shirt and pants. Bring work gloves and safety glasses, loppers, and a small hand held saw, if you have them. There will be permission/ release forms to be signed by parents at the park. 
Please park at the first lot on the right . Tell the park guard that you are here to work at the park and parking will be free. 
For any questions you can my mom's cell Kathy Abbott (860) 798-7402 or me at cell # (860) 918-4356

Please email me at rpiotto124@gmail.com to let me know if you can come—even an hour is OK. It is OK to just show up.  For younger scouts it is best to have an adult to monitor for safety.
I hope you can come. We will have pizza for lunch.

Thank you 
Roberto Piotto

South Park Inn Soup Kitchen Community Service Project

Posted by jrspencer on Sep 11 2014 - 10:14am

The Troop has been asked to prepare and serve a meal at South Park Inn in Hartford by the South Congregational Church, our Chartering Organization.  We will be planning for, preparing, and serving a meal at South Park Inn in Hartford, CT on September 24th. This is a great way to give back to the community and to our Chartering Organization while also having the opportunity to earn Community Service hours towards merit badge or advancement requirements.  We will be preparing and cooking the food at the South Congregation Church kitchen and then will be transporting it to South Park Inn located in Hartford to serve roughly 130 people.  More event and meal details will follow as plans firm up.

Please touch base with JaneMarie Galiette or Shea Mitlehner if you are interested in helping out.
