From Darren J. Costa (Eagle Scout and GM of Marketing and Promotions for NU Men's Basketball):
The Northeastern University Athletics Department is offering a Boy Scouts of Massachusetts appreciation day for the organizations in Greater Boston area, and their families, a chance to experience a Division 1 collegiate basketball game and watch potential National Basketball Association players.
All members of the Troop are expected to contribute to the fundraising efforts of the Troop. All Scouts should be out trying their best to sell wreaths. This is what makes our major income – not the tree sale or dues.
For the 2015 Wreath Sale, we will use the same system as last year for entering orders on the troop's web site. All your orders from last year have been saved, and you will not have to re-type them.
The long awaited activation of our Venture Crew has arrived!
Crew 42 Wellesley has had a long association with Troop 185, dating back to 1994. We have traveled to Alaska, the Florida Keys, Texas and Yellowstone National Park.
Venturing is the 14 (or 8th grade) to 20 year old co-ed division of the BSA. Crews elect a president and officers and plan their own activities under the guidance and supervision of adult advisors.
This year this meeting will again involve both Scouts and parents. We expect at least one parent from each family to attend with their son, and bring your calendar & checkbooks with you.
Please see the attached letter. Among other things, it explains what forms we would like you to bring to the meeting.
The Saco River trip will be from September 9 to 11. If you plan to go, please bring the permission slip with you to the meeting today.
The web site is getting ready for the new school year. You can see upcoming events (meetings, trips, etc.) at the bottom of this page, with a short version near the upper top of the page, and a complete list for the year at the Meetings page. (Use the "Meetings" tab at the top of the page.) You can get the equipment lists and permission slips, when available, from any of these locations.
