Hi everyone this is Patrick Ramsey. My eagle scout project is to create and plant flower beds out of wood for Buttonball School. I have cut the wood and need help assembling 5 more boxes. This will happen at my house at 143 Heritage Drive on Sunday the 18th of January 11- about 1:30. I will provide tools and a pizza lunch. Please email me (Pramz567@gmail.com) if you have any questions or would like to help out. I need about 2-6 scouts. You can also call or text me at 860 338 9174. This will be a fun project and that Sunday consists of only working with power tools and hands on work. Thank you,

Posted by gjohnson2 on Dec 3 2014 - 12:06pm

Hi Everyone,

The year is going by fast, and now we are entering the Christmas season. Can you believe it?  Thank you to the volunteers who are currently working as Merit Badge counselors.  Many scouts are working hard on their Citizenship in the Community or Communication merit badges, hopefully completing them in the next few weeks.
In January, for the Spring semester, the troop will be offering two more Eagle required badges - Citizenship in the Nation (6th, 7th grade scouts) and Personal Management(8th, 9th grade and older scouts).

The requirement links are attached.(you may need to copy and paste)
