Any volunteering opportunities and requests for help will be under the Parents category. We may provide a way to contact other parents through Scoutbook or some other mechanism. We can provide you with a troop12montclair.org domain email address on request, if you wish to have one to communicate Troop related issues, separate from your personal email address.
Congratulations to Jack Brandon, our latest Scout to complete his community project for his Eagle Rank! This past Saturday, 9/17/2016 he and his fellow Scouts worked with the Brookdale Park Conservancy to beautify the entrance to Brookdale Park’s Bellevue Avenue entrance.
Jack Brandon (Eagle Candidate)
The project beautified the ground cover around the entrance signage, and cleared away a lot of the overgrown foliage and canopy around it so that the pathways around that area could get more light.
Congratulations Jack and great job from you and all your volunteers and Adult Advisors. (Now onto the paperwork!)
As you may have heard, we will have our Fall Court of Honor this coming Sunday up at Camp Glen Gray at 11AM, right after the first Training Conference camping trip of the year.
We will hold the Court of Honor in the Dining Hall at the camp, and all parents are encouraged to attend. We will recognize Scout accomplishments and also welcome new Scouts and their families into Troop 12.
A key part of Scouting is for each boy to be recognized in front of the Troop and his family for the hard work he has put into his merit badges, rank advancement, and participation awards. We will serve refreshments and will keep the ceremony on time so that everyone can enjoy their Sunday.
So please make sure to attend and give the Scouts the recognition they deserve for their hard work.
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.
