Throughout the year of 2012, our Troop is preparing to attend Jamboree 2013, and we are hoping to send 6 boys to West Virginia next July! Forty thousand Scouts are expected to attend from all over the world, and this Jamboree will be the first at a permanent site specifically for Boy Scout Jamborees! The cost will be about $1,500 per Scout, so we will need to do substantial fundraising throughout the next year. Anyone wishing to help sponsor a Scout should

contact Scoutmaster Peter Duston.

  1. Good afternoon,

    As of right now we are looking at March 23rd for the 2014 Boy Scout Night at the Portland Expo. That night will also be sponsored by the National Guard and we will be honoring this year’s High School Championship teams. I know a mass email was sent out to all troops – but wanted to make sure yours was included. You are welcome to pass along the info to yours, and area towns surrounding departments. As of right now you can get 15 tickets for just $90.00!!

    If you need anything or would like more information please feel free to contact me at 210-6655. I have attached a flyer for the night in the email.

    Thank you,

    Chris Taylor
