Updating our Directory

Posted on May 12 2014 - 10:59am

We are in the process of updating our contact list so we can get updated contact information into eveyone's hands.  In order to make that happen, we are asking all of our Scouts and parents to email webmaster@troop161.org their name, home address, home phone, work phone, cell phone and email address.  We ask that this information be provided for both parents and each Scout, as applicable.  If you do not want your Scout's contact information published in the directory that will be distributed to all of the members of the Troop, just make a note of that - we will exclude their information from the directory and it will be available only to the registered adult leaders.  For the privacy and protection of our members, particularly the Scouts, we do not make a copy of the directory available on-line, but each family will receive a copy as soon as all of the updated information has been received.

Health & Medical Forms Due June 1st

Posted on May 10 2014 - 11:30pm

Another reminder, we are asking that all Scouts provide us with a copy of Parts A, B & C of the BSA Health and Medical form by June 1st.  Part C of the form requires a visit to your doctor.  We need these medical forms for any outings over 36 hours in length (e.g. summer camp and Boundary Waters) and it is recommended that we have them on file for all events, so we are asking all parents to provide a completed form, including Parts A, B and C.  You can find the updated form for 2014 on our website.

Health and Medical Record Forms

Posted on Apr 12 2014 - 10:11pm

It is that time of year again - we need all Scouts to submit an annual Health and Medical Record form that we can keep on file and have available for outings.  As most of you are aware, the Health and Medical Record form requires a doctor's examination and signature.  Please get your Scout in to see your health care professional and get us an updated form for the upcoming year.  Any Scout who plans on attending Summer Camp must have a current Health and Medical Record Form on file with the Troop.  PLEASE GET THE FORMS COMPLETE AND TURNED IN ON OR BEFORE JUNE 1ST.  BSA has updated the form again for 2014. The current version of the form is attached to this Announcement for download, along with an instruction sheet.  Please do not use an older version of the form.  In order to ensure that we have complete information for any event, we are asking that all Scouts provide the full form including Parts A, B and C.  Please do not use the shorter form that contains only Parts A and B.

Warren High Awarded the Silver Beaver

Posted on Mar 30 2014 - 9:39pm

Our own Warren High is one of the recipients of the Silver Beaver Award this year.  The Silver Beaver Award is given by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America upon recommendation of the local Council to persons who have had an outstanding impact on local youth over an extended period of time through service given to the Council.   The local Council presents a limited number of Silver Beaver Awards each year.  This award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish, and effective service to the community, usually through the program of the Boy Scouts of America. Because Scouters may not nominate themselves for this award, only those persons who have been nominated by their Scouting peers are considered. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest recognition a local Council can bestow upon volunteer leaders.  Please join us in congratulating Warren on this well-deserved award!
