Troop Parent Resource Survey

One of the many things that makes Troop 75 special is the level of family involvement and support.  In order to capitalize on the collective experience of our adults, we have come up with a troop resource survey.  It doesn't take long to fill out, and will help the troop out a lot.  Please click the following link to fill out your survey.  Thanks!  (Mr. Kemp)

Sustainability Merit Badge Presentation during May 15th meeting

Posted on May 11 2019 - 6:10pm

On Wednesday, May 15th, Jodi Smits Anderson, Director, Sustainability Programs, for the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), is planning to speak to the troop about specifics of ‘greening up’ building practices, with examples of sustainable practices in houses and in the DASNY headquarters. This is especially of interest to scouts pursuing the Eagle-required Sustainability Merit Badge, and an opportunity for scouts interested in starting the badge now or in the near future. Ms. Smits will talk about  learning from Nature, and efficiency, resilience, teamwork, adaptation and redundancy in sustainable building practices, and the  nine habits of highly effective green people.  A big thank you to Mr. Brock (who is a Sustainability MB counselor) for arranging for this presentation!  (Mr. Kemp) </p>
