Lorien's Eagle Project Workday — Volunteers Needed!

Posted on Feb 23 2021 - 9:40pm
Hello everyone! This is Lorien Alvar. I am having a work day for my Eagle Project this Saturday (Feb 27) at the Church of the Apostles from 8AM to 2PM. There will be time slots throughout the work day, so you can sign up for the time you are available. If you are not attending the campout and will be available to help out, I would greatly appreciate your help! This is also a great way to earn volunteer hours!
As some of you may know, my Eagle Project is creating a prayer and reflection area for our Troop's charter organization, Church of the Apostles. If you are interested in volunteering, please bring a pair of work gloves, a full water bottle, and a camp chair. Please wear your Class B, a light jacket, comfortable pants, and close-toed shoes (that you wouldn't mind getting dirt on).
Last but not least, refreshments will be available and lunch will be provided at noon.
Thank you for your time and support!

Summer Camp & High Adventure Installments Due!

Please take a look at the activities you are signed up for this summer. Deposits for TRJ and the first installments for Bartle and Dobbins are now due! There are still spots available for Dobbins and TRJ. (If you are interested in Bartle please let the Scoutmaster know as spots may open up)

The next installments for both Northern Tier and Seabase are due as well -- remember you must already have a confirmed spot for these adventures.

Payments can be made via the Troop 844 Store or by check made payable to "Troop 844" and submitted to our treasurer, Mr. Bachani.

* Remember to double check to make sure that you do not have a conflict with the activities you are signed up for as some of them overlap!
