A New Year in Scouting

Posted by ahalingstad on Mar 1 2015 - 10:12pm

I want to extend a welcome to all new scouts and their families as well as our current scout family, the key word being FAMILY.  We hope you find Troop 808 to be a place where your boy can thrive and grow in their scouting experience and we can help facilitate their success.  Every new  year brings transitions as some boys and leaders move on and new ones arrive, but the traditions and principles of scouting endure.  I trust each of us will challenge ourselves to “do our part”, whatever that may be, whether in a  leadership  role (scout or adult), serving on the troop committee or providing support in some other way.  Transportation to and from events is always needed as are Merit Badge Counselors for a variety of subjects.  The time commitments are minimal but the rewards are enduring. 

The new parent orientation is very important as Boy Scouts differs slightly from Cub Scouts and you may have questions that can be addressed early on.  At a minimum, Youth Protection Training is strongly recommended for all Scout parents (must be renewed every 2 years and does carry over from Cub Scouts).  Please see Allen Halingstad  if you haven’t gotten access codes for the troop website where you can set up an online Training account to take YPT and other offerings under “Training”.  Various things like Weather Hazards, Safe Swim Defense and Troop Committee Challenge  can be helpful and usually take between 30 and 60 minutes each to complete.  Outings, campouts and events are also posted on the websites, with an update email going out each week.

As far as  fundraising goes, the Denver  Area Council Investment in Character presentation will be at our March 19 Court of Honor, any donation however small helps our troop meet its goals and the DAC continue to offer top notch programs and facilities.  We do popcorn sales in August and minimal Camp Cards, but the easiest way to cover a large portion of your boys expenses, dues, etc is by getting and using one of our King Soopers Gift Cards (friends and family members can also get them and use if you like), which you can use for food and fuel purchases.  5% of money spent comes back to Troop 808 and half goes straight to your boys scout account.

If you have questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to ask any of our adult leaders, scout leaders or Committee members and we’ll do our best to help. 


Yours in Scouting, Doug Cone, Scoutmaster 303-547-7298 or dandjcone@msn.com 

Domino Service Dogs Thanks Troop 808

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Feb 22 2015 - 10:14am

Troop 808's PLC and Committee Members heard about the upcoming Open House and Silent Auction of Domino Service Dogs' new training facility here in Lakewood, and agreed to donate two baskets loaded with Trails-End popcorn to this worthwhile organization. Domino Service Dogs assists people with disabilities in assessing and training their own service dogs (owner-trained) using humane training techniques, saving them thousands of dollars and providing them much needed assistance and support. DSD will be hosting their Open House on Saturday, February 28, at 6505 W. Alameda Blvd. Unit 101 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Attached here is more information about Domino Service Dogs and their Open House/Silent Auction. They are very grateful for Troop 808's generosity.
