Patrick McHugh's Eagle Project

Posted on Oct 17 2014 - 7:58am

Patrick McHugh will begin working on his Eagle project the afternoon of November 1st from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm at his home (818 Severance Rd in Colchester).  He will be constructing signs for the trails behind Colchester High School.  The signs need to be routed, stained/painted, and mounted on a stake.  Patrick is looking for volunteers to help with this part of the process.  

Patrick will have a second construction time on the November 2nd from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm at his home.  Patrick would them like to meet up Colchester High School from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm to begin placing the signs on the trails. For this folks should plan to bring gloves, a hand held sledgehammer, and a shovel.

What does not get completed on the 2nd will be finished up on November 8 from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.

For any questions, please contact Patrick at patrick.mchugh@colchestersd.org or at 802-879-3988.

Please sign up using the Registration links on the home page of the Troop website.

2014-2015 Scout Year

Posted on Sep 4 2014 - 9:33am

Dear Scouts,

We will begin our Troop meetings on Sunday September 7th, 6:30-8:00 at St. Francis. 

The Troop calendar has been updated with the outcome of the Annual Planning meeting with the PLC.  While there are still a few open questions, I recommend that everyone take a few minutes to look over the calendar so you have an idea of all of the upcoming events.  There is a lot planned in the coming year; as a result we will enforce sign-up deadlines and payments.  The best way for you to keep up to date is to review the weekly E-blasts or to login weekly to check the website. 

Here is a link to this years registration forms on our website: http://www.bsatroop658.com/taxonomy/term/1114.  To simplify this process, I am asking that everyone please complete and bring this paperwork with them to the first meeting.  Please submit payments with checks made payable to Troop 658.
