I have a great volunteer opportunity for all Troop 96 scouts. “Legends of Le Detroit” is performed by the Grosse Pointe Historical Society on Friday, September 26th. The rain date is Saturday, September 27th. It will be a the Provencal Weir House, located at 376 Kercheval Ave. It starts at 7:30 PM so volunteers should arrive before 7:00 PM.
We need scouts to escort people to their seats and help them with their chairs. We anticipate 75 people so I think 5 scouts would be perfect.
Please respond to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so I can get a head count to GPHS. They look forward to scouts from Troop 96 coming to help each year. It is a great performance to watch!

Our final regular troop meeting for this school year is May 19. We will be rehearsing the Court of Honor.
our last meeting is our Spring Court of Honor, on June 2.
then, this very busy summer includes TWO trips to Philmont, and Summer Camp at Pioneer.
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:
9:15-10:00 Handing out of programs to guests
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.
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.
There is a Committee Meeting tonight at 8:30p.
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.
Day’s like today make me glad to have boys to shovel the driveway!
Come celebrate the Holidays, bring some snacks to share, cards to play, and maybe a fun hat?
We hope you enjoy your time with family and friends, as we reflect on the things for which we are most grateful.
Bring some snacks, a game and a deck of cards. We’re taking one night just to enjoy each other’s company and have some fun and celebrate some Holiday Cheer!
