Yawgoog Bank

Posted by jditomasso on Jul 1 2018 - 1:02pm

At Yawgoog, most boys bring some money with them, and we encourage you to deposit with our adult leaders in our “bank” (which is a locked box in the middle of our campsite).  Many boys buy some candy, hammock, or souvenirs, and some need to buy materials for craft merit badges like leatherwork, wood carving, Basketry, or Indian Lore.  You may bring cash and hand it to Eric Johnson at check-in.  Alternatively you may send in advance via VENMO to cell 860-916-3569 or www.venmo.com/Eric-Johnson-462 or using Peoples Person2Person pay ericwaynejohnson@hotmail.com 

Scouts generally bring about $20 for the week for snacks & small souvenirs, more if they are going to buy a hammock.  

Below are the "crafty" merit badge costs. These costs depend upon the projects that the Scout chooses.  

  • Basketry ($6-13)
  • Leatherwork ($1-8)
  • Indian Lore ($10-23)
  • Woodcarving ($4.50-8).

Soup Kitchen Recap

Posted by jditomasso on Apr 30 2018 - 9:40pm

On Wednesday, Troop 156 once again served dinner to 125 people at South Park Inn soup kitchen. Leo D., Jayden T. and Dylan V. shopped, cooked and served the dinner which fulfilled their 8 hour community service requirement for Citizenship in the Community merit badge and Brady M. and Rishi B. helped serve the dinner. As always, the scouts had such an enriching experience and the people who were served were extremely appreciative and impressed with the scouts. A huge thank you to Bill and Shannon Vincelette for helping with shopping and cooking the dinner and Joe Arborio and Mike Tenney for helping the scouts serve the dinner!  If you are interested or have any questions regarding the next soup kitchen please contact me at ajarborio@hotmail.com. - Alison Arborio
