  • Weekly Post, November 16, 2014 Hello Troop 737, Monday’s meeting is Career Night.  Come hear about 3 fascinating careers; one that deals with dangerous materials and sometimes gross results, a world traveler and something very secrete.  Sparked you interest; come and hear about these interesting careers.

  • Weekly Post, October 12, 2014 Hello Troop 737, On Monday night we are going to be holding our SPL, Senior Patrol Leader, elections.  The following Monday, when we will be holding our regular elections, a lot of our older scouts will be at the state band competition, so we will hold just the SPL election this Monday night.  Also ANY older scouts we could really use some help with our Trail to First Class this Monday during advancement night.  I suspect that some of you need to fulfill the requirement of teaching a younger scout a skill using the EDGE method.  This is your chance.   Monday night is Advancement night.  At our last advancement night, the only merit badges that scouts participated in were: Chess ...
