Free Scouting opportunity

Posted by jditomasso on Jun 20 2014 - 8:35pm

Hello Troop, we have an opportunity to have our very own Troop trailer.

We have a supporter who has graciously donated a trailer to our troop. 

The troop would like to accept the donation and now we are in need of somewhere to park it.

If there is a family that would like to store the troop trailer on their property for the troop, the troop will be happy to use this as payment for the Troop scouting fee for the year.  The scout family will save the signup fees that are due in September at the start of the scouting signup year.  The trailer is in very good condition and we are getting it mechanically inspected and repaired as needed and the body will also be sanded and repainted for a clean long lasting life.  We are not planning on making it look like a billboard advertising BSA but, we are planning on having a small logo on it.  We will be asking for donations for these repairs.  Troop family Contributors will also be allowed to use the trailer to move items if they are in need of a trailer.

Interior space for 2 Klondike Sleds 1 on each side = 98” long x 33” wide

Basic floor space 8’ x 5’-9”

Thank you for supporting our troop.

South Park Inn Soup Kitchen Community Service Opportunity

Posted on Apr 22 2014 - 1:52pm

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. This is a great way to give back to the community and to our Chartering Organization while also having the opportunity to earn Community Seriice 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.  The meal will be comprised of Pene Pasta with sause and meatballs, a tosted salad with italian dressing, and bread with cookies for desert.
