Outdoor Ethics training for adults and mature scouts

Upcoming OE Orientation
Registration link: https://scoutingevent.com/082-54248
The course is suitable for scouters and mature scouts. We hope as many units as possible are able to send at least 2 scouts and 1 scouter; this will allow your unit to have youth & adult members qualified to lead Outdoor Ethics at all outdoor events and help your scouts & scouters complete some of the requirements to earn the Outdoor Ethics Award for Scouts or NCAC Outdoor Ethics Award for Cub Scouts.

Wreath sales this weekend

Posted on Nov 30 2021 - 8:31am

Our troop's main fundraiser each year is selling wreaths, which also gives us a chance to connect with the OLGC parish that supports our Scouting program. Please sign up to help sell wreaths, decorate them and give them to parishioners who come to Mass this weekend to pick them up. We will need at least one adult for the early Sunday shift and some Scouts. We don't have any one signed up for some of the later Mass time Sunday, though we may sell out by then. Your wreath volunteering counts toward service hours so make sure to log those.
