Nov 25 – Life to Eagle Seminar

Troop 111 will host another “Life-to-Eagle” seminar for interested Life and Star Scouts and their parents during the weekly troop meeting on Tuesday November 25 in the church sanctuary. The seminar will cover the steps needed to complete the path from Life to Eagle, with emphasis on the Eagle project, and include this year’s updates to the Eagle requirements. If you are unable to make this seminar, contact Joe Hoeing for an alternate date.

Troop Website Changes

The address is the same, but the troop website has a new look. We have converted to WordPress, which allows the youth Webmaster and Historian to make changes including adding pictures! The official troop calendar is on the website. If you have a suggestion, please contact the Troop Webmaster.

Note: If you want to connect the new calendar to your Google or Outlook account, go to the new calendar page and click the subscribe at the bottom of the page.
