Ben received his Eagle Scout rank at his Court of Honor on Saturday.  It was a great celebration of the work and dedication Ben has put into Scouting over the last 12 years.  We are looking forward to seeing what’s next from Ben. 

Parking Lot Sign Up is LIVE

Posted on May 18 2018 - 10:17pm
It is summer time and that means it is time to signup for parking lot duty! Please use the link below to sign up via signupgenius.com. Each scout must signup for a minimum of four (4) shifts during the summer. Adults should sign up for two shifts in case extra help is needed. All shifts are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.unless you are told otherwise.  If ANY of your days are rained out, be prepared to fill in other shifts. Please find someone to fill your shift if you need to cancel. Scouts should bring sunscreen, hats, water, lunch or lunch money. Scouts should be prepared to be very bored to very busy. New this year, we'll have a canopy to help keep things cool and shaded.
Parents please sign up to be "on call "  for 2 shifts if there are issues that day. It doesn't usually but it does sometimes happen that you would be asked to come help. If the day is hot, you will likely be needed. Please check in with Michael Galli at the beginning of the day to see how things are going. 
Michael will be calling to remind Scouts and parents that they signed up. Michael can be reached (phone or text) at  978-810-4200. ‭Decision to close up early or cancel will be made by Michael and he will notify you as soon as decision is made. 
If you have any questions please e-mail  Peggy Pates at ppates@aol.com. Troop 3 thanks you for your time and talent in making  this fundraiser happen

If anyone has phots from this year Troop events (meetings, trips, volunteering, service projects) we’d love to include them in this year’s slide show during our Court of Honor.  Please upload them to the google drive linked below.  This seems to be pan easier way to share and download to a slideshow than Shutterfly

Summer Camp sign ups...time is ticking.

Posted on Apr 28 2018 - 8:23pm

Are you ready for Summer Camp? This week, emails went out out to sign up for Wah-tut-ca Camp July 15-21S  

It's time to start signing up for Summer Camp.  Troop 3 will be camping at Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Camp in Northland NH July 15th - 21st.  This will be our first trip to this camp, but all reports are that it's a great place.  The 2018 Program Guide which will give you most of the information you'd need on the camp and explain the numerous options of activities that Scouts can do at the Wah-Tut-Ca is available on the website and in your email.  Our contact at the camp said she reserved us one of the two best sites in camp.  
There program is a bit different in that they don't typically have specific "classes" for badges.  On their own schedule and pace, Scouts go to an area and work on badges and activities they want to with instructors assigned to each area.  
Steps to take:
  • Use the link below to fill out the Google Form registration to get the Troop the information we'd need.
  • A couple features of thisGoogle Form:
    • There is a drop down list to decide on how you'd like to pay;  either with a check or the Troop's PayPal.  If you do PayPal, there's a link that will take you to the Troop website where you'll be able to pay.  You'll also see a link in the form to purchase a Council Adventure Card, which can save you 20% on camp. 
    • You'll see a link to download the BSA Health Form and you can even upload a completed form to the registration.
  • Please have all registration information in before May 11th, so that we don't incur any late registration fees from the camp. 
  • Make your appointments for camp physicals soon, so there's no rush the week before camp.  Use you're on doctor or there are plenty of walk-in clinics around now that do them (CVS, Lahey Urgent Care, etc).


Troop Committee is looking for new members

Have you thought to yourself “Gee, I’d like to help with the Troop but can’t make it to meetings every Monday night” or “I think the Troop is great, but I‘d love to find a way to participate without going into the woods”. Maybe you’ve thought “this is OK, but I’ve got some ideas on how to make it better!”
