We hope that everyone is safe and well, and are adjusting to back-to-school schedules.  Catonsville Presbyterian Church remains closed to outside groups due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.  For now, Troop 306 will continue to hold regular Troop meetings outdoors at CPC, and the PLC and Troop Committee meetings will remain virtual.

Listed above are the Troop’s upcoming meetings and activities for the months of September and October.  Please remember that there is no Troop meeting this Thursday, 9/16, and also note the change in the camping dates for October.

We also hope that everyone received the Troop calendar for the 2021 – 2022 year; the calendar also lists the dates for some District meetings and events.  We may occasionally make adjustments to the calendar, and if so, notifications will be sent out promptly, and updates will be posted in the newsletter.

UNIFORMS

Now that school is back in session, Scouts should resume or begin wearing their Scout shirt and neckerchief to all Scout meetings.  Scout pants or shorts may be worn, but regular pants or shorts (blue jeans, khakis, etc.,) are acceptable.  A full Class A uniform is required for the Court of Honor on 9/30 — this includes Scout shirt, Scout pants or shorts, neckerchief, merit badge sash, and appropriate footwear (boots or tennis shoes).

We have used uniform items available.  Please see one of the adult leaders for more information. 

CATONSVILLE ARTS & CRAFTS FESTIVAL

Today is the Catonsville Arts & Crafts Festival on Sunday, September 12, 2021.  Woo Hoo!!!  Many thanks to all of of the volunteers who will be helping out today, some for 8 hours or longer.  You are appreciated!

Please arrive on time, and all Scouts should wear their Class B shirts.

WE NEED YOU!

Troop 306 has officially entered its 109th year, which is pretty awesome!  This accomplishment is greatly due to the support from CPC, the community, and in particular parental involvement, and all of which are necessary for the Troop to continue to thrive.  We encourage each family to attend the Troop Committee meeting held on the first Thursday of every month at 7:30 pm — this is a great way to learn about upcoming plans, see how the Troop is managed, and obtain more information about areas of need.  The meetings are currently being held via Zoom.

SCOUTING IS IN HIGH GEAR !!!!! LET’S HAVE A GREAT SCOUT YEAR !!!!
