Congratulations to Troop 37’s Newest Eagle Scouts
#99 Vincent Villani
To all scouts, leaders, and parents,
The time has come for me to take the next step on my road to Eagle. My eagle project will be taking place at Great Kills Park located at the corner of Hylan Blvd. and Buffalo St. on Saturday March, 12 beginning at 8:30-9 AM. We will be meeting at the Education Field Station. The field station is located past the large parking lot on your left and the ranger building on your right. Signs will indicate where to go. Back-in parking to the fence.
The project will consist of painting and mounting new bird feeders, cleaning existing feeders, and cleaning/sweeping the site and building. Supplies will be provided as well as food and drink. In the event of inclement weather, a rain date will be provided in the near future.
If you will be able to attend please email me or let me know at this Friday’s meeting.
I apologize for it being on such short notice but the opportunity presented itself. I am grateful in advance for any time or help you can provide.
A Winter Storm Watch has been posted for most NJ counties for Friday night through Sunday morning Winds may gust to 20-35 mph inland and 50-60 mph at the coast. Snow totals are forecasted to be greatest in SouthWest NJ and lowest along the coast and in the north.
Impacts may include travel hazards, high winds, coastal flooding and cold temps. Coastal locations should be prepared for moderate to major flooding. Power outages may occur with high winds and heavy, wet snow accumulation on trees and power lines. Flooded and icy roadways and snow will create slippery areas on untreated roads and sidewalks.
Reimbursements will be made at a future date.
“If you err on the side of caution when you are deciding what to do, you do the thing that is safe instead of taking unnecessary risk.” – Mr. Di Trani
Troop Meeting 7:30 PM Friday January 8, 2016Uniform: Class A. We will be reviewing First Aid and the new BSA Rank Requirements that affect all Ranks.
Please find attached to this email a permission slip for the Friday, January 22 to Sunday, January 24, 2016- Camping Trip to Durland Scout Reservation, located 1 Clear Lake, Putnam Valley, NY 10579. We are sleeping in Cabins and the cost of the Trip is $30.00 per person. We need to obtain an accurate headcount to accurately plan menus and purchase the appropriate amount of food. With a Troop of this size we have logistical issues and also need ample time to ensure we have enough drivers. Therefore the cutoff date to have your slip and payment submitted in order to attend this trip will be Friday, January 15th. That is the last meeting before the trip.
If attending Please Print out the attached form we need a hard copy , or you may obtain one that will be available at the Troop meeting.
The Troop 37 “EVE of the EVE” will take place the night before New Year’s Eve (Tomorrow Night) Wednesday Evening, December 30th in Saint Teresa’s Lower Chudrch Hall from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
In light of recent events I believe this could be an opportunity for getting everyone together for pizza and/or hero’s for Dinner, and this would also be a time for all of us to just hang out together being so many recent Eagle Scouts are home for winter vacation.
If everyone brings their favorite board game, (Chess, Monopoly, Risk, etc.) deck of Cards or whatever, it would be like a Wednesday night in the TTK pavilion at Hawk Mountain.
No Uniforms required but if you want to feel like you are at Hawk you can wear a Hawaiian Shirt or your “Class B”T-shirt. Sorry No brass hook / ring on a string game area.
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the untimely passing of our most recent Eagle Scout, Fred Fischer. Fred passed away sometime during the night of December 20th at home.
Fred was a kind and gentle soul and just made Eagle earlier this month. Please keep the Fischer Family in your thoughts and prayers.
Friends will be received at Harmon Funeral Home on Sunday, December 27th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm & 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
