Prayers for Clark and Ben Sayre Please

Posted on Apr 18 2021 - 9:50pm

Dear Troop 161 Family -  Clark Sayre and his father, Ben, were in serious accident this weekend.  The Troop does not have a lot of details at this point.  We do ask that everyone keep all of Clark's family in your prayers. As more information becomes available, it will be posted on the website.

Mulch Delivery - 1st round is next weekend

Posted on Apr 18 2021 - 9:49pm

Our first round of mulch deliveries is scheduled to be on Saturday, April 24.  Here's what you need to know:

  • This is an all hands on deck event.  If you are not on the backpacking trip, we need your help
  • For COVID safety, each scout will need a parent to help get them to and from the delivery sites.  We will have a truck deliver the mulch to our various customers, and scouts will follow or meeting the truck at he home, drop off the mulch, and move to the next site.  Family members may ride in the same care together. 
  • Do NOT wear your class A uniform. This tends to be a bit of a dirty job.  At least one scout has ruined a class A uniform while delivering mulch
  • Food will be provided, but you will need to bring your own water bottle. Gloves are a good idea also. 

Sales are still ongoing.  And although they have picked up some, we are still pretty slow.

Funderaiser Sales are still behind

Posted on Apr 11 2021 - 9:12pm
Hi Everyone - I just looked at previous years fundraising compared to this year.  As two weeks prior to the flower sale, we've only sold about 60% of what we sold in 2019.  That's a difference of about 900 bags between our last sale and this year.
