Congrats to T457's newest OA Vigil Members

Posted on Oct 16 2016 - 6:05pm

Congratulations go out to Ben K and Ethan B were bestowed with the OA Vigil Honor, the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can bestow upon its members for service to lodge, council, and Scouting in an early Sunday morning ceremony on August 21. To put the significance of this honor in perspective, in a single year approximately 54,000 scouts become Eagle Scouts and yet only 2,200 Arrowmen (youth and adult) are bestowed with the Vigil Honor. Ben and Ethan were 2 of 6 that were selected for this honor this year from our lodge (council). Be sure to congratulate them when you see them. Yours In Scouting, Mrs. Ginny Conway, Assistant Scoutmaster & OA Troop Representative Adviser

I just wanted to remind you all of my upcoming Eagle Project. It will be at Calvary Episcopal Church, at 20 Milton, on Sunday, October 23rd from 1 PM to 5 PM. Please remember to bring shovels, work gloves and other digging implements. I will be providing water and food, but you will want to eat before you arrive. Please print out a permission slip and bring it with you on the 23rd. You can also pick one up at the next meeting. If you plan on attending my project, please email me as soon as possible so I know how many people I will have to help me on the 23rd. Thank you,  Ethan B

Popcorn Reminders

There is just over 13 days remaining for our 2016 Fall Popcorn Fundraising Campaign; how close are you to exceeding your target? Reminder that if you have any show-n-sell popcorn that you've taken, please make arrangements for retuning the leftover products. ALL unsold popcorn MUST be returned no later than the close of our meeting on Wed, 10/26. Additionally all popcorn total sheets need to be turned-in by that time as well so that any additional popcorn that needs to be ordered can processed and submitted. Keep up the good work, Michael & Brendan Rohan PS - As always, please do not hesitate to contact us directly with any questions.

Fishing Derby!

Posted on Sep 22 2016 - 12:04pm

This weekend on Sunday September 25th, we will have our fall fishing derby.  It will be from 1:00 to 4:00 at Ellicott creek park in Tonawanda.  We will be meeting directly at the park at 1:00. There is no cost to participate and all are invited. It is a public park and everyone 16 years old and older should have a fishing license. We will be fishing in the overflow basin  to the right of the large parking area near the Niagara Falls Blvd entrance. The overflow basin is a shallow pond off of Tonawanda creek that is loaded with fish. There are tons of sunfish and bass as well as catfish, rock bass and the occasional pike. Prizes will be awarded for most fish, largest fish and  smallest fish. Please find the attached permission slip for more details. I will be at the meeting on Wednesday to answer any questions you may have. Yours in scouting, Mr. Brand
