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.

Michael Balasuriyar Eagle Project Service Hours

Posted by cspencer on Sep 5 2014 - 7:37pm

Hello scouts of troop156
As you know, I, Michael Balasuriyar, am working an eagle project at black ledge falls.  The project entails taking an existing bridge: moving it to a better position; adding strength to the bottom of the bridge; adding a railing; and placing foundations.

Tommorrow from 8 to 12 I will need scouts to help clear the new path to the new area where the bridge will be.  I would apritiate if any of the scout's parents would stay and help with the bridge.   If possible, please bring your own work gloves and water, saws, and garden shears

On sunday we will be pouring concrete, and I would apritiate any more experienced scouts or adults to help with the concrete

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

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, tentatively 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.
