The troop had a great week at Camp Keowa this summer where 15 boys completed many merit badges, rank advancement and 4 scouts completed SM conferences and boards of reviews.
On Saturday morning a group of scouts from Troop 353 hiked from Bronxville to Scarsdale with 30-pound packs, as part of their preparations for this summer’s high adventure trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
Other scouts joined the five-mile hike to compete requirements for ranks and the hiking merit badge.
It’s that time of year again! Our local Boy Scout troop has been working tirelessly to participate in a *BRAND NEW* and *EXCITING* fundraiser that can be found online at http://www.goodturn.coffee. Simply put, we realized that popcorn is just not something most people are interested in buying. This year, we asked ourselves, “how could we get people to help us raise money, while also giving them something they want?” We found our answer in coffee! How would you feel if I told you that you could change the lives of boy scouts just by changing where you buy your everyday cup of coffee from? Well, now you can, and we’re proud to roll out this amazing fundraiser. It’s something that everybody can get behind.
We wanted to make this as simple and accessible as possible, so we gave you the power of choice: you can choose between ground coffee *or* K-Cups, express shipped right to your door. It’s a win-win for everyone! You pay below market price for high quality coffee, while the boy scouts get 100% of the proceeds as a donation. What more could anyone ask for? All the money you spend on coffee can now be spent philanthropically, and it’s now possible for you to seamlessly lend a hand in helping foster community, teamwork, adventure and character.
There’s just one simple thing you need to do to help the boy scouts – upon checkout, enter our troop code: 0353-10709- XX (each scout has his own two-digit code to replace the final two Xs…)
We cannot tell you how excited we are to participate in this effort, and hope that http://www.goodturn.coffee becomes your main source for coffee! We kindly ask that you forward this post to any friends, family, and colleagues who you think would be interested in helping change the lives of the scouts in our community, and helping lay the groundwork for the future of America’s youth. Let’s make our scouts’ dreams come true, one cup at a time.
