South Church Spring Clean Up

Posted by zkhan on May 2 2017 - 6:19pm

Troop 156 showed great support on Saturday with the South Church Spring Cleanup day. We had 6 scouts and 5 adults helping to with weed, prune and spread mulch around the church grounds. The scouts worked hard and showed great enthusiasm! The Trustees of the Church were very appreciative of our efforts! Thank you everyone for all your help!

South Park Inn

Last week we had five scouts serve at the soup kitchen at South Park Inn in Hartford. Thanks to John Lomansney, Garrett Molinari, Spencer Moy, Christian Palacio, Cole Tardif, Rita Lomansney and Alison Arborio 125 people were served a delicious pasta dinner. As always, the people were very gracious and appreciative! Troop 156 has the opportunity to shop, cook and serve at South Park Inn twice a year. All scouts and adults interested should see Alison Arborio!

Volunteers Needed for Spring Cleanup at South Church

Posted by aarborio on Apr 17 2017 - 9:50pm

South Church is having their annual spring cleanup work day on Saturday, April 29th from 8:30-12:30. I realize many scouts are going to West Point that weekend but it is extremely important that we support South Church with their cleanup. I strongly encourage the scouts who are not going camping to please sign up to volunteer at least part of the time. Adult volunteers are more than welcome too!  South Church offers and provides our troop with many benefits so it's our responsibility to help them out when possible! Thank you! Alison Arborio

South Park Inn Soup Kitchen - April 26th

Posted by aarborio on Apr 17 2017 - 8:29pm

We are still in need of volunteers for the upcoming soup kitchen at South Park Inn! This is a great way for scouts to get hours for advancement or if you need your 8 community service hours for Citizenship in the Community. Serving at South Park Inn is extremely rewarding and fulfilling so even if you do not need the hours I would encourage you to sign up. There are 3 ways to volunteer: shop, cook and/or serve. Please sign up on the troop webpage.
