Bicycle Roundup (July 26): We will be assisting South Street Ministries again this summer as a service project. During our Pancake Breakfast on July 26, we will accepting donations of used bicycles to support this project. Again, please spread the word to family and friends.
Pancake Breakfast (July 26): Troop 935 will host its first annual Pancake Breakfast on July 26 from 8 to 11 a.m. at McDonaldsville St. Paul United Methodist Church. All proceeds will benefit the troop and its activities throughout 2014-2015. For a donation of $6 for adults, or $3 for kids 10 and under, you can enjoy a delicious meal of pancakes, sausage, applesauce, orange drink and coffee. Volunteer help is needed. Please contact Mr. Ruppert if you can assist. And be sure to invite your friends and family! We will also be collecting any used bicycles for South Street Ministries.
South Street Ministries Service Project: We will be bringing the donated bike on Monday July 28th and returning Wednesday July 30th to help with the bike clinic. We need 5 or 6 scouts and at least one adult to help each night. We will meet a the church at 5:15 and be at South Street from 6 - 8 pm both nights. The clinic is when the children in the neighborhood work on fixing the donated bikes to earn a bike of their own.
Put-In-Bay Camporee (Sept. 5-7): We will be attending the Put-In-Bay Camporee from Friday Sept. 5th - 7th. The permission slip and payment due to Mr. Elkins by June 30th, this date is set by the troop sponsoring the camporee. This is a fun but busy weekend the scouts should only need money to purchase souvenirs - see the permission slip for everything included with the cost.
Summer Camp (June 22-28): Summer camp 2014 is now history and what a week it was! We completed another successful week at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation, and came home with many merit badges, two coup feathers, camp honors, two new OA candidates and a lot of great memories. We've posted a few photos of the week.
Eagle projects: This post will be kept open as we have several Scouts arranging work days for their projects. If you have a need for a posting please send an email to Mr. Smith to get this updated with current information. The latest Life to Eagle Packet has been posted and should be reviewed by all Scouts once they earn the Life Rank.
Medical Forms: BSA National has once again revised its medical form in 2014. The form consists of 4 parts: Parts A and B are to be completed at least annually by participants in all Scouting events. Part C is the physical exam that is required for participants in any event that exceeds 72 consecutive hours, for all high-adventure base participants, or when the nature of the activity is strenuous and demanding. Part D is required to be reviewed by all participants of a high-adventure program at one of the national high-adventure bases and shared with the examining health-care provider before completing Part C.

Zaleski Hike - Due July 18th
Homesickness: This is a fantastic article from a past Scouting magazine issue pertaining to dealing with homesickness. It gives a lot of good advice for leaders and parents pertaining to how we should deal with it. Please pay specific attention to the section titled 'Set up a no-call policy'. We have had to deal with this issue frequently. This is a reason we do not allow cell phones to be seen at campouts. While we can't control use inside a tent, we hope parents will understand, support, and reinforce our position to your sons. Not a Happy Camper
Welcome to the latest iteration of the Troop 935 website! Take a look around; if something isn't working right let us know. If you would like anything added, let us know that as well. Hopefully, all of the forms you need are readily available in one of the four headers on the left under 'Forms'. We have a few things to do here yet, including adding more to our picture pages and try a password protection area for family contact information, committee meeting minutes, Scoutmaster reports, Scout account status, summer camp payment status by Scout, and other things. For you 'old timers' out there, there are plenty of things that are missing and gaps that need filled in, so please feel free to contribute or offer missing details!
A PDF version of each program year is available in our 'Unit Information' link on the left menu.
