SEARCH & RESCUE MERIT BADGE - What's Left?
For everyone that attended the Search & Rescue campout last weekend at Green Dickson, you are probably wondering what's left to complete the merit badge. There are a few requirements that you'll need to work on and discuss with your counselor, Mr. Moran.

The project consisted of tearing down the old horse ramp and building a new heavy duty ramp out of pressure-treated 2x12x14s, 2x6x8 lumber and deck screws at the Ride On Center for Kids in Georgetown where it will be used as part of the horse therapy program.
Fire lane painting
Thanks to the nearly two dozen folks that turned out to help paint the fire curbs red at the church on July 10th. Nearly 10 gallons of red paint in, and there will still be more to do at some point in the future. Turns out there is a nation-wide shortage of fire lane paint. Who knew. So, if you missed your chance to get some red paint on you, we'll likely have another sessions at some point.
FALL Troop Leadership SET
Monday, May 15 we held our spring elections at the troop meeting. Congratulations to Jack Douglas, our SPL for the fall term! Also to our other scouts in leadership positions.

going camping with t157?
One last thing -- the T157 tradition is that if you go camping, at the Monday meeting after the campout you can wear a Class B t-shirt instead of the Class A uniform.
