Popcorn Fundraiser Underway

Posted by admin on Sep 21 2016 - 10:07pm
It is time once again for the annual Boy Scout popcorn fundraiser.  As in the past, we are requesting that all scouts (including Eagle scouts) participate in this sale either by selling popcorn or participating in the buyout option.  The goal for each scout is $200 in sales or an $80 buyout.  This is the ONLY fundraiser that the Troop participates in for the year.  The popcorn sale helps to defray the costs of troop operation including, for example, purchasing Merit Badges and Rank Advancements, equipment purchase and maintenance, and many other expenses.

Superb Leadership Training for Adults -- Wood Badge

Posted by admin on Sep 14 2016 - 10:43pm

Wood Badge training is two 3-day weekends which focuses on leadership, teamwork, communications, presentations and having fun!

This covers the same material as your work-based training but you get to LIVE it for these two weekends, which makes it all come to life.  Highly recommended to make you more effective in Scouting and your work career.

Stay tuned here for details on Troop 755's best-in-class swimming program (Swimming Merit Badge, Lifesaving Merit Badge, First Year Swim Program).  Although the Northville Parks & Recreation pool has closed, the Troop is making arrangements to conduct these classes at Schoolcraft College.  More to come on this.  Mr. Phillips tells me that this program will be FANTASTIC.

Troop 755 On Facebook and Twitter

If you haven't visited our Scout-run Facebook page, now is the time.  If you are a member of Facebook, go to www.facebook.com/troop755 and join.  The objective of this effort is to have fun and to provide interested troop members with what is going in the Troop from the boy's perspective.  Note that this is not an official channel of communication and will not replace e-mails and the Troop website as your official source of information for Troop 755.

As a reminder, Troop 755 is also on Twitter and you can follow us @troop755.  Often you can follow the boys on campouts as adult leaders post tweets during the trip. The intent of this effort is to have a little fun as well as provide a central clearinghouse of various Scouting activities that are taking place on Social Media.  We have over 85 followers so far -- please help us get to 100! Don't want to become a Twitter user but would like to stay connected?  You can text "follow troop755" to 40404 and you will receive all of the Troop 755 tweets on your phone as SMS text messages.

If any registered adult leader would like to learn how to publish tweets on the Troop account, please contact the webmaster using the "Contact Us" feature.
