We Welcome You To Troop 650!

Welcome to a new scouting year at Troop 650! We have many exciting things planned for the year including campouts, popcorn sales, BBQ sales, and other things that will give your boy some scouting skills. As of February, Rob Murphy has taken over as our new scout master, so let's make him feel welcome for his first full year with Troop 650. Remember, meeting times are now taking place at 7:00. We look forward to having you in our troop.

Please be aware that access to this site is limited to Troop 650 members only. To get access, you must be fully registered with the Troop. ~Thanks

DON'T FORGET!!! Mark Swartz's Eagle Court of Honor!

Posted by Terri Dollinger on Aug 26 2014 - 6:14pm

Please join Mark Swartz and his family on Sunday, August 31, 2014, as Mark receives his Eagle Scout rank.  Mark and his family would love to have the support of all the scouts in the troop on this very important day.  Several scouts are needed to participate in the ceremony.  The ceremony begins at 3 pm in the Fellowship Hall followed by a reception with cake and snacks.  It should be completed by 4:30.  Please sign up to the right so we can plan accordingly.

As we start the new troop year, new procedures to better organize and prepare have been initiated.  One such change is permission slips for activities.  As a reminder, permission slips for the September campout are due September 8th.  If a scout is not camping with their parent (scout leader) then a permission slip is required.  It is important to have these to know how much transportation is needed, how much food needs to be purchased, and to ensure all insurance requirements are met.  We are not collecting permission slips in the parking lot the day of the campout.  Thanks for your help with making our troop a better troop.

As previously requested at our troop meeting of August 18th, a Troop Popcorn Coordinator volunteer is needed.  The scouts previously indicated their desire to sell popcorn as a personal fundraiser for their campership accounts.  This is not possible without someone to coordinate this fundraiser.  If interested, please volunteer prior to our next troop committee meeting of September 8th.  Let Bill McCowan, troop committee chair or Rob Murphy our scoutmaster know of your desire to help the youth with this fundraiser.

Posted by Lance Dollinger on May 12 2014 - 6:19pm

For those who need to fill out a new health form, they will be available to fill out. The health forms have just been reformated and these new ones will be provided here. Remember, for those who are just going on a weekend Boy Scout activity, you only need to fill out parts A and B. If you're going to summer camp, you also need to fill out part C, not just parts A and B.
