Fall is Popcorn Sale Time
Jill Gallagher is our new Troop Popcorn Kernel! A BIG thank you to Jill! A new Popcorn Committee is being established and we couldn’t be more excited!
Popcorn sales are a large part of the Troop’s fundraising efforts. We share half of the profit with the Scouts that participate in the Popcorn Sale. Scouts should sell $500 worth of popcorn to have annual registration fees paid by the Troop. Alternatively, should you choose not to sell, we ask that you contribute $100 to the Troop.
Be on the lookout for more information to come!
Faith Lutheran is again requiring masks for all indoor activities. Please bring masks. There is a meeting every Tuesday in August this year, we will not take a week off.
Summer Camp and Bike-Camp-Canoe went well! Scouts earned almost 100 Merit Badges. Exciting times!
We are in the planning stages for hikes to help scouts complete requirements for the Hiking merit badge. Dale Sroka is coordinating hikes that meet the various requirements. More details to come.
Eagle Service Project Update
We are still waiting on approval for Mark Nester’s submission of plans for building a dugout at one of the ball fields at Fort Island School. We are looking at early September. He will need the Troop’s help - more to come!
Scoutmaster News - Jim & Elise
There is so much happening in Troops 7390 and 390. And it is great to have additional parents participate in the activities. The Bike, Camp, Canoe this past weekend is a great example! We had 16 Scouts and 8 adults. Everyone had fun and the campout was easier on the leaders.
We would like adults to take the Youth Protection
Training and register either for the Troop Committee or a leadership position. Merit Badge Counselor is another position where we can use many parents. There are over 135 Merit Badges. Chose one in your field of expertise or a couple that are your avocations. Either way you help the Troop. If you don’t know which ones to choose, let us guide you by telling which ones we need most.
We have activities planned and reserved through February 2022 and are working on completing the Scout year through August 2022. We hope August 2022 will be a family campout and White Water Rafting at Ohio Pyle PA.
Welcome Emerson Sage - a new Scout for Troop 7390!
Hey Scouts! Make a point of saying HI!
2021 Sea Base High Adventure

Masks are required through the month of June when in the church building. Church Council will reassess for July.
Troop Committee Meeting
The next Committee Meeting will be held on September 12, 2021 at 7pm and will be in person at Faith Lutheran Church.
You don’t need to be a committee member or leader to attend – ALL ARE WELCOME! We are looking for more parent involvement to ensure the success of the Troops.
The Committee is working to find additional service opportunities for the scouts. If you have any ideas, they are warmly welcomed!
ACME Cash Back Time
The ACME cash back program has begun again this fall. Please save your receipts for the Troop! More details to come! Money goes into the account of the Scouts turning in the receipt
Our focus for the Troop meetings will be rank advancements.
The Values of Scouting
Scouting is a values-based program with its own code of conduct. The Scout Oath and Law help instill the values of good conduct, respect for others, and honesty. Scouts learn skills that will last a lifetime, including basic outdoor skills, first aid, citizenship skills, leadership skills, and how to get along with others. For almost a century, Scouting has instilled in young people the values and knowledge that they will need to become leaders in their communities and country.
THE SCOUT OATH OR PROMISE
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and
To obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
Mentally awake, and morally straight.
Do a Good Turn Daily
THE SCOUT LAW
A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,Friendly,
Courteous, Kind, Obediant, Cheerful,
Thrifty, Brave, Clean, Reverent
As an American, I will do my best to:
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded
