Cub Scout Uniforms Needed
We have had a request from another Pack for any spare Cub Scout uniforms your sons may have outgrown. Please drop them off with Mr. Joslyn at a weekly meeting.
Food Drive — Our Holiday Food Drive is almost here and more information will be given at the next Friday meeting by Justin Leong.
Committee Meeting — The next Troop Committee Meeting will be held at St. James next Tuesday at 7:30PM in the Library.
Training Conference 2 will be held at Glen Grey on November 12th to 13th (Saturday to Sunday). Patrols will be camping and cooking outside, so warm sleeping bags and other outdoor gear will be required. At this Training Conference we will be investing our new Scouts into Troop 12. More information will follow in the next few weeks.

||Refers to a Training Conference, followed by a number, this usually refers to a camping trip at Camp Glen Gray in Mahwah, where the boys learn most of their camping skills. These usually involve a single overnight stay. During winter and unexpected inclement weather, the boys will sleep inside our cabin.
|| Refers to Merit Badge Sessions, followed by a number, these are held at our regular Friday meetings from 8 – 8:45pm. there are three Merit Badge Sessions in the Troop’s calendar from September 2016 through May 2017.
|| Recruitment is essential to the survival of the troop. There are a few key dates around Montclair’s Middle School “back-to-school” events where we can reach a large number of parents with flyer distribution and an explanation of how our troop works. Additional Parent and Scout volunteers (in full Class A uniforms) are always welcomed.
