December 12th is our Ice Cream Social and Recruitment Night

Posted on Dec 1 2018 - 4:08pm

At our meeting on December 12th, we will hold our second annual Ice Cream Social.  We will have a variety of slide shows from our recent  high adventure and summer camp experiences and hope to have a number of Webelos scouts attend to get to know a little more about Troop 75.  The true measure of what makes Troop 75 special is not just the outings we go on, however, but the scouts who make up the troop. So we need as many scouts as possible to attend and show the Webelos what makes Troop 75 such a great troop to join.  (Mr. Kemp)

December 19th Court of Honor and Pot Luck Supper

We will hold our annual winter Court of Honor and pot luck on December 19, 2018.  Please note that we will start an hour early, at 6:00 p.m.  Rank and merit badges earned since September will be presented tonight.  As with all our Courts of Honor, the entire family is welcome. Please sign-up on the troop website and let us know how many guests will be with you and what dish to pass you are bringing. We need volunteers to arrive a little early to help set-up and to stay after to help clean-up.  Thank you. (Mr. Kemp)

Save the Date: January 19th is the Fourth Annual Merit Badge College and Lock-In

Posted on Dec 1 2018 - 4:01pm

Our Fourth Annual Merit Badge College will be held on January 19, 2019.  We are hard at work putting together a schedule of merit badge classes based on feed back from the scouts.  Afterwards, we will have a lock-in at the church with videogaming and other fun activities.  As new information is available we will update the calendar event but for now, please save the date.  (Mr. Kemp)

Klondike Derby - February 1-3, 2019

Posted on Dec 1 2018 - 3:58pm

Troop 75 will once again match wits and Scout skills with other troops in Fort Orange at the 13th Annual Fort Orange Klondike Derby.  This year we have reserved Siek Cabin and Dearborn Cabin, which are located side by side.  Each cabin sleeps 12.  We will need at least 4 adults to attend (2 for each cabin) although more are welcome, space permitting.  The cost is $30 and sign-up closes on January 23, 2019.  Please see the attached flyer, or check out the calendar event, for more details.  This would be a great opportunity for a patrol to buid teamwork and meet scouts from other troops.
