Congratulations Gary!

Congratulations to Gary!
On January 29th Gary will be receiving the distinguished award of Silver Beaver. For his support and
dedication  to the scouting program it is only fitting for to be recognized!

The Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Upon nomination by their local Scout council and with the approval of the National Court of Honor, recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not seek it.

2019-2020 has begun

A message from our Scoutmaster, JP Benoit:

Tomorrow night (Sept 9th) will be our first scout meeting of the year. To ensure that we get a good start to the year this will be a Parent/Scout meeting, as mentioned before there has been some changes in leadership, communication and advancement. We will also kick off the preparations for the 2020 Colorado Expedition.

** At least one parent needs to attend to receive information.

We will be meeting at the Stow Community Center at 7:00 PM

As a reminder Scout Registration, Dues and Medical forms are due tomorrow night as well.

Troop registration fee is to cover the annual registration renewal costs to Mayflower Council each year. Payment can be made on the https://troop1stow.net trading post or by check to Troop 1 Stow. Financial assistance can be made upon request to the scoutmaster.

The BSA Class II medical form is also required for all scouts. These forms can be completed by a parent/Guardian..A copy of insurance card is also required with these forms. If your son attended summer camp last month then you do not need to submit the Medical forms.

Montana – The Great Outdoors

We returned from our 2 week adventure Montana, filled with new stories, great experiences and a few nice photos. Here’s a small sampling of them. The weather was great, the groups all made the most of the backpacking and our week touring around Glacier National Park was spectacular. Thanks to all our supporters who helped make this trip possible.
