Donate Merit Badge Books to Troop Library

Posted by tking on Jan 11 2017 - 6:55am
Scouts of Troop 365,
Our troop library is badly in need of new, updated merit badge handbooks. The majority of our library is very outdated, and has been purged. This means we have very few handbooks left, and for only some merit badges. If you have merit badge handbooks at home you have purchased in the past two or three years that you no longer need, I am asking that you consider donating them to the Troop's library. If you will please bring them to one of the next few Troop meetings, I can add them immediately, and have them ready for other Scouts to use.
Thank you for your help!
Bryce Selman
Troop Librarian

Troop Class B Shirt Information

Posted by tking on Dec 26 2016 - 5:04pm
There will be a update to the way the scouts receive a new class B shirt. In the past, they were able to receive a new shirt every two years. That policy is changing.
As of right now, ALL Boys in the troop will receive a new free Dry-Wicking shirt (Class B) with the new logo. After that, all new boys joining troop will continue to receive one free shirt when they join. After that, any new shirts will need to be purchased. The boys can continue to wear the class B shirts they already have as well.
We will be taking preorders for adults that wish to purchase Dry-Wicking shirts. The cost will be $12.00 per shirt. (Additional cost for any shirts above XL) Please let Monica Hester know if you wish to preorder a shirt before January 9th. She will also take preorders at the Monday meeting on the 9th.
Any questions please feel free to contact Monica Hester. Thank you!
