Next Troop Meeting on September 2 - Dress Appropriately

Posted on Aug 27 2014 - 8:17am

The next Troop meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 2 at 7:00 PM at Gateway Hall. With the school year started, we will return to Class A uniforms for meetings; however, if the weather permits, we will be cleaning up the hillside at the fire station that evening, so in addition to your uniform, please wear a T-shirt you wouldn't mind getting dirty (gloves will be provided as well as trash bags). Along with the clean up, we will conduct our popcorn kick-off at the meeting and prepare for fall events and activities, so get ready for another great Scouting year!

Each year during the Celebrate Monroeville program held at the Monroeville Convention Center, scouts and leaders from the Monroeville Troops provide service by collecting canned goods brought in by patrons for the local food pantries. We need help again this year on September 11 between 3:45 and 8:30 PM. Help is needed both early in the program to collect the donations and later to load the truck, so scouts and leaders can sign up for a shift either the first few hours or the last few hours.
