Tom Thumb Good Neighbor Program (a passive fund-raiser)

Posted on Apr 27 2016 - 6:59am

This easy-to-participate program only requires that you download the pdf form and register your Tom Thumb loyalty card, sign, date and turn it in at your local Tom Thumb store. The ID number on this form links a donation from Tom Thumb to Troop 265 based on the purchases made when you use your Tom Thumb card.  Share this with your friends and family who also patron the Tom Thumb stores to increase the benefit to our Scouts. It is no additional cost to us, but a sponsored program through Safeway to help 501c organizations.  The more earnings through this program, the more we can provide for the Scouts in Troop 265 to improve, expand and enhance their Scouting experience.  Based on the patronage of registered cards, Troop 265 will receive quarterly payments from this program.

Please download the form, register your loyalty card to Troop 265 and go grocery shopping today!  Thanks for supporting Troop 265.

Website tips and tricks

Posted on Apr 7 2016 - 5:04pm

Some useful tips on the website:

  • Calendar Sync - This feature will let you keep your iPhone/Android/PC calendar in sync with the Troop calendar. As events are added/deleted/changed, your personal electronic calendar will automatically be updated. No need to manually add Troop events to your personal calendar. To setup click here.
  • Our web address is now troop265.org. We are dropping the domain fmtroop265.org (losing the 'fm' part). This should make us easier to remember.
  • If you need to contact a leader or anyone else in the troop, click on Troop Roster in the left menu. From there you can browse Adult Leaders and even other members of your patrol. If you see anything incorrect or missing on your own entry use the Contact Us link in the left menu.
  • Scouts - if you want to know your progress towards next rank - go to the troop roster and find your name under Scouts. Next to your name is your current rank. If you click that rank, it will take you to a page that shows what you have and still need for your next rank along with other info. This info may be slightly out of date so contact Mrs. White if you think you are missing something.
