As summer vacation draws to a close, what better way to share our camp experiences and reconnect with one another than at our upcoming Annual Family Social?! And this year is a little more special as we will also be celebrating Troop 216's 65th Birthday! The whole Troop family is invited to come on out to the Rudgear Estates Pool on Sunday, August 24th from 3:00-7:00pm for a little swimming, socializing, and of course eating! We'll have a Taco Cart on hand serving up delicious made-to-order tacos! Just bring either a dessert, salad, or drinks to share. Sign-up on the Troop website and indicate what you'll be bringing. Cost is $11 per person and covers Taco Cart and Swimming (lifeguards provided). Hope to see you all there!

ADVANCE CAMP - Still Time to Register

REGISTER your Scout on the TROOP WEBSITE to attend Advance Camp. Fee is $37 (it is past the early bird discount price). Once you have "registered" / signed up your Scout on the Troop website, Tracy Seng (Advance Camp Coordinator) will forward your choices (give two choices for AM and PM) to Scoutmaster Thor and Tom for their approval, once approved she will register your scout under the Troop account. The troop also needs parents to DRIVE to and from Advance Camp. Please register as well - put down if you can drive to or from Advance Camp, OR if you can stay and/or would like to attend any of the Adult Trainings (fee is $37 per adult to attend trainings). DEADLINE is September 17th!

Troop 216 would like to end the summer with an Outdoor Outing.  Do you and your Scout want to go car camping with the Troop in August?  We are looking to put together a group and need to know if there are any ADULTS that can attend with the Scouts.  The Troop needs at least TWO ADULTS, but more is always great.  Please contact Cynthia at cynsmn@yahoo.com if you are interested and please include weekend(s) in August which work best for your schedule.  We can then discuss details with all interested adults!

VOLUNTEER NEEDED ~ Troop Popcorn Co-Kernal

Posted on Jul 22 2014 - 1:39pm

Boy Scout Popcorn Sales is around the corner!  The District Kick Off Meeting is August 6th - WEDNESDAY at 7PM in Danville.  By attending this Kick Off Meeting our Scouts will earn an additional 4% (this would give them 31%).  Troop Scouts keep their Popcorn proceeds for their summer BSA approved camps and troop outdoor outings.  Last year,  Troop Scouts earned approximately $2,800 in commissions (plus summer Camp Credits & incentives), which went towards their summer camp fees and or troop outdoor outing fees.  THE TROOP NEEDS ONE (or TWO) MORE PARENT TO COORDINATE TROOP POPCORN SALES.  Donna Courington Wendandt (Troop Treasurer) has graciously volunteered to be one of the Troop Kernals / coordinators, but NEEDS HELP.  For details, please contact Donna or Brant Watson (last year's Popcorn Kernal).
