Ready...set...GO!! It's time to sell wreaths, Troop 39!!! This fundraiser provides money for all of our campouts and activities throughout the whole year, so it is crucial that every scout sell wreaths. Information packets were handed out on 10/28. Check out the prizes, including a new adventure outing for all the scouts selling 50 or more wreaths!! Street assignments will be valid through 11/11, then all of Marlborough is open territory. Checkpoints will be done at each meeting, if you finish your street assignment early, you can request additional streets. Copies of forms are attached below. Any questions, talk to an older scout or Mr. Nastri. Good luck and thank you for working to support Troop 39!!

Bags should be distributed by each scout starting on Saturday, 11/1. Scouts will return to collect filled bags on Saturday, 11/8 and bring them directly to the Food Bank on Wilhenger Drive. More details will be announced at the meeting.
Mark the Date: Connecticut Rivers Council is again offering a merit badge day on November 15, with a focus on badges being offered in the STEM study areas (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Currently, more than 20 badges are being offered at several different locations around the state. Pre-requisites and more details are still being added on the Council website. Online registration opened on October 1. Most classes have size limitations, and the popular badges fill up quickly, so plan ahead if you want to participate!
Leaf Raking will be held the afternoon of Friday, November 7 from 4:30pm to dark, and the morning of Saturday, November 8 from 8:30am until the job is finished (about 11am).
