Car Wash Is On!

The car wash is on!!!  After potential rain this morning, forecast shows very little chance of rain for our car wash.  If you have been waiting until you learned the green light is on and have not yet signed up – please do so this morning for planning purposes.

Don’t forget to encourage friends and family to bring their cars to be washed.

Northern Tier Adventure Video

Troop 29 has been selected to attend Northern Tier High Adventure BSA Camp in 2017! Summer Northern Tier Flyer          T29 Northern Tier Adventure

If your scout* is interested, you need to take action NOW!

  • Inform Mr. McGuire at mike.mcg44@gmail.com or 508-520-3519
  • Submit a non-refundable $300 deposit by 2/5/15
  • If, as an adult, you are interested to be a leader, inform Mike and sign up now

We have a very short window to make a deposit to hold our spot.
