Sign Up for Summer Camp 2016

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Nov 15 2015 - 1:25pm

Troop 808 will be attending Cortlandt Dietler at Peaceful Valley July 10 - 16, 2016. The cost for the week is $295. Payment can be made in full, or by following the payment plan. (You can hold your slot with a $50 non-refundable deposit, and the next payment won't be due until February 25.) The PLC chose Deitler because "Scouts here focus on different goals, and Troops who believe summer camp is an opportunity to do more than earn merit badges frequent this little slice of paradise.  From challenges designed to strengthen patrol bonds, to camp-wide themed survival outpost nights, Cortlandt Dietler is where boys master outdoor fundamentals, grow leadership abilities, and build character." We hope you can join us!

Use Troop Gift Cards for Thanksgiving purchases

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Nov 5 2015 - 10:22am

As we head into the holiday season I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you who take part in Troop 808's Grocery Store Gift Card Fundraising. This program helps keep dues to a minimum, while at the same time providing funds to Individual Scout Accounts. It's a definite Win-Win! I also wanted to mention that, as this is one the busiest times of year, it's also a great time to reap the maximum benefits from holiday grocery purchases - and fuel purchases too (which has the added benefit of the gift card being processed as cash, so you pay the lower cash price at designated stations). If you do not already have a Troop 808 Grocery Store Gift Card and would like to get one for yourself and/or get cards for your friends and family to use, please contact Mrs. Fitzjarrell, Troop Treasurer. Thank You for your support!

Successful Popcorn Fundraiser + the Winning Patrol is....

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Oct 22 2015 - 9:16pm

Thanks to everyone that helped with this years’ Popcorn fundraiser. You not only met our Troops’ goal, you exceeded it. This allows two very significant things to happen; 1) I will be recommending to the Committee that our Troops’ annual dues be kept at the same rate (no increase) for 2016, and 2) The Committee will be able to acquire many more items on the Quartermasters Wish List, providing our Troop with some much needed replacement and upgraded camping gear. I am also very pleased to announce the winners of the Pizza Party – the Patrol that had the highest amount of Popcorn sales are invited to come enjoy some pizza before the meeting (10/29 at 6:30 in the kitchen area). The winning Patrol had over 90% participation (scouts who sold popcorn) and brought in a little more than the other Patrols combined total. With $5,326 in sales, the winners of the Pizza Party are – the Jurassic Park Staff Patrol. Congratulations and Thank You! ~  Mrs. Fitzjarrell, Troop Treasurer

2016 We the Students Essay Contest

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Oct 22 2015 - 1:35pm

The We the Students Essay Contest is an annual nationwide scholarship competition for students in grades 8 to 12. The essay competition challenges students age 14 to 19 to write a 500- to 800-word essay about the Bill of Rights. It’s open to anyone — young men and young women, Scouts and non-Scouts. But there’s a special prize that’s only available to Boy Scouts. One Boy Scout will receive a $2,500 scholarship for himself and $500 for his troop by winning the contest, sponsored by the Bill of Rights Institute. Boy Scouts analyze and discuss the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights as part of the Eagle-required Citizenship in the Nation merit badge. Now one Scout’s interpretation of the role of the Bill of Rights in modern society could result in some free cash for college — and for his troop. Learn more and enter at this link.
