Memorial Day Service Opportunity

Posted on Updated on

Once again we have been invited to participate in the Memorial Service at Grosse Pointe Memorial on May 26th.

This is a great way for scouts to honor those who have given their lives in service to our country and counts toward rank advancement.

This is what they need:

8:30-9:15 Setup
9:15-10:00 Handing out of programs to guests
10:00-11:00 Ceremony
11:00-11:30 Teardown

That’s 3 hours of community service! If your schedule is tight, you can attend only the portions you are available.

Please let Dan Clements know by responding to him via e-mail or sign up at Monday’s troop meeting.

Camp Schoenherr: Worst Weather, Ever?

Posted on Updated on

It’s been overheard by this reporter, that several survivors of the 2014 Camp Schoenherr Expedition, claim this was the worst weather ever faced on a Troop 96 campout!

On Saturday, April 12, 2014, Michigan was hit by a violent Spring thunderstorm.  It left thousands without power and the generated straight-line winds left a path of wreckage that ruined trees, homes, cars, powerlines, businesses and more!  Hail and heavy winds took a toll on many communities, especially Lake Orion, Michigan.

We always remind ourselves of the importance of safety and being prepared.  Scouts can take anything, and this past weekend, we did!

We are glad there was no reported loss of life, but for many Michiganders, the cleanup and repairs will take many weeks to complete.

Due to all this gorgeous snow, GP schools are closed, so we will not have a meeting tonight.

Please note the next campout is January 17-19 at Camp Petosega (in a cabin) with skiing at nearby Boyne Mountain.

Please let me know if you are interested in attending. If a parent let me know if you can drive and how many scouts you can take.
