It contains information regarding uniforms, camping, merit badges, the 2016/2017 calendar (a live copy of the calendar can always be accessed on this site), and much more useful information that parents AND scouts will need to help make this a successful year.
I look forward to seeing at least one parent at the parent’s meeting tomorrow evening, 7:PM, St. James Church as well as our returning and new scouts.
If you have any questions, please reach out to any of the troop’s leadership. If you are not sure of where to direct your questions, I can assist.
Thank you,

Troop 12 All Parents Meeting and Kick Off 2016-2017

Greetings to all parents! I hope everyone has enjoyed the rest of the summer and the start of the school year.


Our new Scout year kicks off on Friday Sept 16th, at 7pm at St. James.  The older boys have already met to start planning the year. They are excited to get started.  And judging from what I saw myself, and what I heard, the Troop had a very successful Summer Camp.

This Friday’s meeting is mandatory both for Scouts and their Parents! 7pm at St. James.

Parents, we will be meeting upstairs to review some critical information for the upcoming Scout year. This includes our calendar, first camping trip on Sept 24th – 25th, our new Fall fundraiser, and other key topics. It is very important that every family have at least one parent attending the parents meeting.

Our boys rely on your active support so that we can provide a full program of fun, advancement, and life skills. Their advancement and development takes all of our support – the Troop works best when we all take turns.

I look forward to seeing you all on Friday night.
