Cooking Merit Badge

Scouts working on Cooking Merit Badge are asked to see Mrs. Bechtel to go over requirements that they have completed and review menus. Mrs. Bechtel is available at some scout meetings and at stacybechtel@hotmail.com.

Tents Cleaning, Drying, Missing

Tents must be cleaned and dried quickly after campouts. Scouts using Troop Tents are asked to determine who will take the tent home after a campout to clean it and dry it. Tents can be dried by setting them up or by opening and hanging them over a piece of furniture, railing or a clothes line in the house or outside. The tents are to be returned at the next troop meeting. We are missing one green tent from the August campout and one beige fly from a green tent. If you have either, please notify Mr. Horvath this week. We don’t want to buy a new fly if someone knows where it is.

Popcorn Fundraiser
Blair Lampner - blampner@yahoo.com

*The popcorn fundraiser is ¾ over. Each scout is asked to sell a minimum of $450.00 of popcorn which will give $75.00 to Troop 390 and $75.00 for their scout account. If a scout chooses not to participate in the popcorn sale, a $75.00 donation is expected to cover that scout’s portion of the troop’s operating costs.

*Popcorn orders due 10/28/14.

*Popcorn is to be picked up on 11/15/14 at Mrs. Lampner’s home.

*We are looking for someone to shadow Mrs. Lampner this year with the hopes of being our 2015 popcorn chair. If you are interested, please let Mr. Horvath know.

Buffalo Naval Park/Niagra Falls Event Requires Advance Commitments

The Naval Park event includes dinner, breakfast, the overnight, a tour of the park and one ride on a motion simulator. We sleep Saturday night onboard the USS Little Rock.

Scoutmaster's Minute
Jim Horvath

“Thank you” is an important part of our vocabulary. It cannot be said enough. The Troop has just finished another weekend of two campouts. One was backpacking in the Shawnee State Forest and the other was at Camp Manatoc. Each campout requires a minimum of two deep adult leadership or one adult for every ten Scouts. Without that adult participation we could not provide a program to our youth. My sincere “thank you” to all who help provide that adult coverage at our activities, whether it is camping with us or providing transportation or assisting at the Troop meetings or chairing activities. Your help is much appreciated. We are a very lucky Troop. However, we do need two more volunteers: one to be our Popcorn Kernel for 2015 and shadow Mrs. Lampner. The shadowing opportunity is almost over as popcorn wraps up at the end of November. The other is to replace Mrs. Hensley as our Acme Cash Back coordinator for next year. Both of these positions can be Moms or Dads. Please let me know that you are willing to do one or the other. Thank you!

Jacket Left at 10/21 Troop Meeting

A North Face winter jacket was left at the Troop meeting this week. Please call or email Mr. Horvath if it is yours. It will be at the Troop meeting on the 28th or it can be picked up sooner.

ACME Cash Back Register Receipts

Please save your ACME register receipts that show a Cash Back Amount on the bottom and give them to the Troop. Scouts should put their name on each receipt and turn them in at any Troop meeting. Scouts get credit in their Scout Account. The program runs from September 18, 2014 thru February 4, 2015.


Ethan Luster is our new SPL.

PLC’s will continue to be held the 1st Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm. Scouts with leadership positions are asked to attend to help plan the next month’s troop activities.

Rummage Sale Cleanup Help Needed

Our troop helps with the cleanup of the following rummage sales:

11/8/14 1:00 Faith Lutheran Church

We need scouts, parents and siblings to help take the left over items to the Salvation Army and Goodwill.

ACME Cashback Program Coordinator

This is Mrs. Hensley’s last year in this position. We are looking for someone to take this program over fall 2015. She is happy to train a new person. All you have to do is collect and total the ACME cash back receipts from September  through February and turn them in to ACME. It’s a job that can be done from home!
