Please join us for our annual family picnic, a great chance for us to get together and kick off the summer! The troop is providing hot dogs, drinks and Rita’s water ice.
We are asking families with the last name starting with:
A-N to bring a side dish or salad

We need a few boys to commit to staying to help clean up. All trash needs to be emptied and supplies need to be returned to the church. If you can volunteer please let me know.

Mr. Kane is hosting the Citizenship in the World merit badge class. STARTS MARCH 16TH. To sign-up for this badge a scout has to be at least First Class. If you will be taking this badge, you must see Mr. King and get his approval and a signed merit badge card to bring to our 1st meeting. You should also get a copy of the merit badge book from the troop library, or purchase your own, and READ it! For more information and the dates of the class, please follow the link below. Please note, the first class is March 30th.
Troop 6 runs with the gracious and committed support and participation of our Scouts' parents. Troop 6 Uniformed Leaders and Committee Members volunteer their time to help our Troop live up to its mission, while having fun and enjoying the rewards of our scouts' personal growth.
It takes many volunteers to help the Troop run smoothly and watch the boys learn and succeed. There are many ways to contribute your talents to our scouts. In making the attached survey, your Troop is trying to uncover ways you can enjoy giving assistance. We are asking that at least one parent from every scout participate. Please follow the link and complete our survey.
If you have any questions about this committment or want to learn more about a particular role in the Troop, please contact Jim Rushworth at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any problems completing the online survey, contact Melissa King at email@example.com
Your cooperation and participation are greatly appreciated!

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.
The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.
NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.
