Good morning ALL,

Welcome back to the new Scout year!!!!

We will have our first Troop Meeting of the season this Thursday 9/4/14 in Our Lady's Center starting at 7:30 PM.  Wear your Class A Uniform and BRING your Scout Handbook (we will be signing off things from Summer Camp).

We will be going over the new patrol assignments and picking new Patrol Names.

Some other things going on:

St. James Picnic is this coming Sunday 9/7/14. We could use some help setting up and tearing down.  You are invited to stay for the activities.  This is a service project that we do to give back to the Church that sponsors us and provides a place to meet and a place for our pancake breakfasts.  The congregation goes out of its way to support us and this is a GREAT way to give back.  Scouts need to wear your Class B uniform.  Make sure you sign up on the Troop Web Site.

Registration for the Scout Religious Retreat the weekend of 9/19/14 has been opened-up until this Thursday. Whether you can take in the entire weekend, Saturday only or just the religious service Saturday night, please sign up and note when you are attending.  This is a very special retreat as it is in memory of our Scoutmaster Emeritus Tom Lehmier.  We'd really like to see as many scouts and leaders attend as possible - especially for the evening service.  If you have earned a religious medal of your faith within the past year, please come and be recognized! 

Start looking for event sign ups on the Web Site.  We have a very busy schedule this year and some of the events will be showing up soon and you won't want to miss out.

Have a GREAT WEEK!!!  I will see you Thursday.

Yours in Scouting,

Mr. Maney

We are in need of able-bodied adult leaders to assist in the loading of the church bell onto the liftgate  of a truck from Ingram's Powdercoating. 

ASM Blevins has procured a forklift to assist in lifting and moving the bell.

If all goes well, this should only take 15-20 minutes.

The bell will be sandblasted and painted a burgundy with the frame painted black.

When complete, the bell will be delivered to Camp Mack for placement in the Memorial Garden in memory of Tom and Mary Lehmier.  We'll advise when the dedication ceremony is planned.

Congratulations Troop 142 for attaining the Troop Award of Excellence following your week of summer camp at Bashore Scout Reservation. 

To receive this award, all 7 patrols from the troop had to earn the Baden Powell Patrol Award (multiple tasks that each patrol had to complete) - try keeping 46 boys focused for a week! 

A special "WELL DONE" to Senior Patrol Leader Colin Heckman, his assistants and the 7 Patrol Leaders for all their hard work to achieve the awards! 

This continues our summer camp tradition of attaining these awards dating back to the 1990's!

Also, many thanks to Scoutmaster Maney and his assistants for giving their time this past week on behalf of the scouts!  

Great job scouts and leaders!
