Troop 114 – Holiday Party – Dec 17

Hello Troop 114,

    As you may know by now, Troop 114 is having its annual holiday party this upcoming Tuesday. Each scout should consult the list below for what they should bring in regards to snacks, drinks, etc. Also, we will be organizing a Yankee swap among all scouts who wish to participate.

     For the Yankee swap, bring one wrapped gift of $10-15  in value, and we wil set up a table for all of the gifts. We will go over the actual mechanics of the swap at the meeting for those of you who do not understand it. There is one restriction on gifts this year, and that is no iTunes gift cards. Aside from that, be reasonable, put some thought into it if you want (…camping gear anyone?), and have fun!

    Please refer to your patrol for what to bring:

·         Sean’s patrol: Dessert items, such as cookies, brownies, etc.

·         Jack’s patrol: Drinks, primarily soda and water

·         David’s patrol: Snacks such as chips, pretzels, and anything else like that

·         Jonathan’s patrol: Healthy snacks, such as fruit/veggie bowls, carrot sticks, cheese     and crackers

·         Bacon Ninja Patrol (new scouts): Dessert items

·         Senior Patrol: Drinks, soda and water, etc.

    If what you are bringing in has potential allergy implications (such as nuts, especially peanuts, or garlic), please label your food item with what it is and its ingredients.

    This will be a casual meeting, so wear Class B uniforms (scout t-shirt). I hope to see you all there. Email me or Mr. Spurr with any questions, comments, or concerns.

    Happy Holidays,

    Jonathan Williams

Troop 114 End-of-Year Picnic

Good Morning Troop 114 Families!

Another scouting year is coming to a close.  Where has the time gone?  Due to a Mohegan Council event on June 11th, our end-of-year picnic is now scheduled for Tuesday, June 18th at 6PM at Dean Park.  We realize there will be a conflict for the 8th graders, as it is the same evening as the 8th Grade Carnival.  We are sorry that there will be a conflict, but we were running out of days to hold the picnic.

Our celebration will include dinner and awards.  The troop will provide hot dogs & hamburgers.  We ask that families bring the following, according to where they fall in the alphabet:

A-I: Drinks & chips
J-P:  Desserts
Q-Z:  Side Dish

As with the February Awards banquet, we ask that you label your dish with ingredients for those who have allergies (wheat, egg, milk, soy, nuts, garlic, etc.).  We also ask that you RSVP to me with your family name and headcount, so we can plan the burgers & hot dog supplies.  Please RSVP by Sunday, June 9th!

Please email me, if you have any questions or concerns.

Best, Jennifer Wright Owen
Troop 114 Committee Chair

Greetings Troop 114 –

On Saturday, March 23rd, we have two activities for which all scouts should be preparing and planning to attend:

1:00pm – 3:00pm              Food Drive to benefit Saint Anne’s Food Bank

Troop 114 will collect, transport, sort and shelve donations for St. Anne’s Food Bank to distribute.  Each scout will receive a plastic grocery bag into which they should collect donations of the items listed on the slip inside the bag.  These bags should be brought to a troop meeting or to the Food Drive on March 23rd.

On the 23rd, we will meet at the Congregational Church at 12noon to collect and load the donation bags for transportation to St. Anne’s, where we will unload the donations and place them on the appropriate shelves at the Food Bank.

Class-B uniforms should be worn.

We will have a sign-up sheet at Tuesday’s meeting… please volunteer to help.

5:00pm – 7:00pm              Annual Pasta Supper

It’s time, once again, for Troop 114′s annual Pasta Supper!  This is a major fund raiser for our adventure program and all participants in the Philmont Scout Ranch trip this summer must attend.

The menu will include pasta with sauce, meatballs, salad, bread, beverages and homemade desserts.  The cost is still only $7 per person and children under 5 eat free!

All scouts will be issued 10 tickets to sell… the resulting $70 should be returned by Tuesday, March 19th.  Unsold tickets must be returned (but I’d rather you sell them J).

We ask that all scout families bring a desert to share at the Past Dinner.

Class-A uniforms must be worn.

We will have a sign-up sheet at Tuesday’s meeting… shifts will include a set-up crew (4pm-7pm) and a clean-up crew (5pm-8pm).

Collect your food… sell your tickets… mark your calendars.

See you all there.

Mr. Spurr
