ScoutsCAN for Food
Troop 76 will be participating in the months ahead to empty the bins at the recycling center of returnable plastic bottles and cans.  The bins must be emptied only during operation.  The exit gate is closed at 4:00 p.m., Monday - Friday and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.  There's no access after hours or on Sunday.
  Here's a link to download instructions (.docx file).  For details and hands-on demonstration, please e-mail spencer_carlson11@icloud.com.  Check out TTSU for sign-ups.

Remember: a total of 12 hours of community service are required each scouting year.  Six hours are required between June 30, 2016 and mid February and another six hours from mid February to mid June 2017. Two out of the six hours each semester may be non-Troop sponsored, with prior approval from the Scoutmaster. 

For the troop to participate in a community service project, two adults are required to sign up and attend.  Boy Scouts of America policy requires two-deep adult coverage at all times.  We need everyone's help to enforce this policy.   If two adults don't participate in a service project, the troop will cancel the commitment we've made to the organization.  Important note for adults: when you sign up for log keeper, you must send Jana Hogan a list of scouts who participated and the hours they worked.

Read our service policy here.

Adult Training
Merit Badge Counselor Training
All Merit Badge Counselors will be required to get trained before the end of the calendar year. You must either attend a training session in person or take the online course. It is a one time only training. There will be additional dates offered throughout the year (and hopefully at Sequassen but that is TBD at this point).
