Veteran's Day Ceremony

Posted on Nov 8 2019 - 4:31pm

Each year we help our Sponsoring organization (American Legion Post 113) celebrate Veteran’s Day. We would like a good show of support for the Legions and Veterans and are asking any Scouts available to attend the services at the Legion at 10:00a.m. In full uniform.  There will be lunch provided and you don’t have school that day.

Project Adventure November 9

Posted on Nov 5 2019 - 3:57pm

Troop 3 goes to Project Adventure in Beverly!

We're going to spend the day at Project Adventure in Beverly on their challenge courses.  Project Adventure programs help develop social-emotional skills that are critical for school and life success. Participants engage in challenges that strengthen group communication skills, allow for goal setting, and foster resiliency. The leadership program is designed for smaller cohorts of students who want to enhance their skill set and develop skills that will allow them to work as leaders within their communities. The leadership skills learned through this program allows students to develop confidence and experience they will be able to transfer into other contexts.

Service Opportunity: Open Door Pantry - Sunday Nov 10 - Early spots still available

Posted on Oct 31 2019 - 2:49pm

Thanks to everyone that has already signed up for Open Door Pantry.  This is our First Open Door Pantry dinner of the year. It's a great experience helping out people in our community and it counts for service time, which is required for advancement. Each Scout is expected to take part in one of these dinners each year, so why not plan on attending this one and you won't have to stress about making the one in the Spring. We do the dinner in two shifts, 1:00-4:00m to prep and 3:30-6:00 to serve (these times are a little earlier than normal). Parents and adults are always welcome to help.  We currently have enough people for the service part, but would welcome some help on the early shift to prep.

This is also a great chance to see where all your hard work on the spring Food Drive benefits.  Follow the link below to sign up:

Uniforms are an important part of being a Scout and being a cohesive group.  It's also something that at times starts slacking.

At the end of every meeting we ask all the Scouts to participate in cleaning up from that night’s meeting (sweeping, putting tables and chairs away, returning equipment to the Quartermaster room).  Going forward, the Patrol that is in the most complete uniforms will be exempt from cleaning.  

Washington DC Here we come; April Vacation

Posted on Sep 20 2019 - 5:43pm

We were already planning to do a Washington DC trip in April and now that the school has cancelled thiers, we're even more committed to making this happen. The details are sparse right now...almost non-existant :) but we're reviving the Troop 3 Tradition of going to Washington DC over April Vacation 2020.  There are plenty of stories and pictures of the Troop's trips around the Scout House.  This promises to be a great trip.  I believe that the school trip was usually a 3 day (or so) whirlwind.  I think we'd lean more towards a longer trip to try and see all that we can without feeling like we're sprinting from one spot to another.  

Have you thought of the Troop Committee? 90 minutes a month is all it takes.

Posted on Oct 2 2018 - 10:06pm

We want to encourage everyone, including new parents to join our Troop committee.  We need representatives from all the younger scouts so we stay in touch and keep the committee strong.  The Committee is like the Board of Directors of the Troop whose primary responsibility is supporting troop leaders in delivering quality program and handling troop administration. The troop committee is responsible for conducting the business of the troop, setting policy, and helping the Scoutmasterand Scouts with the outdoor program and other planned activities. The committee also has the responsibility to provide adults for boards of review. This is an important responsibility and is one area where help is always needed and appreciated. Our Committee meets the first Tuesday night of the month during the scout year.
