Troop 351 – Madison, AL

Welcome to the Troop 351 Website!

We meet on Monday nights 7-8:30 pm at Asbury United Methodist Church,
in the Hope Building (980 Hughes Road).

Announcements (Updated Monday, May 3rd):

MEETING

Meeting tonight!  Extras include signups for backpacking, hurling summer camp questions at Mr. Cooley, and picking a date for white water rafting (or at least beginning to plan).  That is right, after a final push of study and academics it will be summer, and getting our dates and plans ready for water sports activities.  

Reminder: Meetings are also an opportunity for troop guides, historians, librarians, instructors and scribes to exercise their duties.  Think ahead about what support you might need and talk to your SPL or ASPL about making it happen.

Web site!  We need pictures.  The contest refresh has begun, soon our webmaster will need your pictures.  OR, or maybe there will be a way to post pictures on the website yourself.

Sunday May 9:

Don’t wait, act now.  Whoever the special people are in our lives we can show them thanks.  I recommend or suggest doing, over giving.  Find ways to help, be on your best behavior, and don’t wait until Sunday May 9th to start.  

May backpacking: Signups have started, right now people have signed up and most have picked option 2 (return Sunday).   Options are being discussed that might have the group returning home Saturday night.  Watch for more information and respond so our treck master can set up the best event.

Summer camp:  Mr. Cooley has a checklist, be on the lookout for it and use it to be prepared.  Reach out to Mr. Cooley with thoughts and questions.  For information about the camp and classes check out:  https://sequoyahcouncil.org/camp/  Are you paid up?  Make final payments now.

DUES: You can turn in your dues check at a meeting, you can get them to Mr. Lang or you can pay through the pay-pal account.  Dues are $100.00 for each scout and $45.00 for each leader.  Contact tjlangco@gmail.com with questions or for PayPal info.
