Friends of Scouting

Posted on May 23 2016 - 3:49pm

You may remember that a representative from Friends of Scouting came to speak at our Spring Court of Honor. Our fundraising goal for the year was $2,000. Thanks to the generosity of our Troop parents, we have exceeded our goal and have pledged $2,925 to FOS. Thank you! By meeting our goal, we will get FREE merit badges and rank badges for the rest of 2016! The last time Troop 265 qualified for this program, we saved over $800 in awards and we can do the same this year. So tell your scout to go crazy and earn as many merit badges as he can this year – let’s break another merit badge record!

Service Hour Update

Posted on May 6 2016 - 11:01am

According to the 2015 BSA Guide to Advancement, service hours that are performed individually by Scouts can count toward rank advancement. These service hours need to be service to the community such as helping at CCA, volunteering at a library or animal shelter, etc. Mowing your neighbor’s lawn or cleaning out your garage does not count. Service hours that are performed for NHS or other organizations or for a merit badge cannot also count for rank advancement – no double dipping!

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

Posted on May 6 2016 - 11:01am

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.
