Troop Potluck

Posted on Jul 25 2014 - 8:09am

Hi everyone! On Wednesday September 3rd, the troop will be having a potluck dinner, along with registration and merit badge class sign-ups.  While we have non-specific courses, etc. being brought by patrols, we would like families to bring one dish of their own to share.  However, since we don't want to have the same dish, we would like different dishes brought.  Please e-mail me with what you would like to bring, but please note that it will be "first come, first serve" in the sense that if two families want to bring brownies, the first family to  respond will bring brownies.  Thank you all for your participation!

Troop 457 Registration and Calendar

Posted on Jul 21 2014 - 10:13am

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  This note encompasses Troop 457’s updated registration fees and calendar items for your fall planning.
Late last August Troop 457 was notified by the Greater Niagara Frontier Council of a last minute change to the insurance portion of our registration.  The insurance portion of the fee went up $9.00 for every registered Scout and Scouter (adult Scout).  The troop has about 100 registered Scouts and Scouters.  Because of the very late notice the Troop Committee decided to absorb that cost last year.  For this new Scout year the Troop Committee agreed to revise our registration fees as follows:

Dear Troop 457: I would like to thank everyone who came out to my Eagle Scout project this past Saturday. We started at around 9 and wrapped up just past 12. Everyone at the Getzville Fire Hall is very happy with how everything turned out. Thank you all one more time for coming to help. --Evan Bennett
