Strong Supporter of Middleton Scouts is sponsoring Annual Comedy Night

Posted on Mar 22 2017 - 4:17pm
On Saturday April 1, the 1728 Club is hosting its annual fundraiser, a Comedy Night and Silent Auction at Angelica's.  I'm writing to ask for your support by attending the event or making a generous contribution.

The 1728 Club is a long time, strong and enthusiastic supporter of the Middleton Boy Scouting program.  For many years, they have consistently supported our Life scouts who are fund-raising for their Eagle projects, as well as several one-time troop and pack events like the Bike Rodeo that we organized a few years ago.  The 1728 Club organization supports many diverse Middleton organizations.  This fundraiser is their opportunity to gather funds which they can direct to worthy projects over the next year.
 
In addition, the event coordinator is Atty Tim Houten, and Tim is a Director on our Friends of Middleton Scouting for Boys Board as our attorney.  It would be great to support him as he directs this event. 
 
For a fun evening out, consider attending this popular event.  $30pp which includes free hor d'oeuvres and a cash bar.  As a backup consider making a generous donation. 
 
I have a conflict with a family event and cannot attend this year, but will be making a donation.  I hope you can participate in this event in some fashion, too. 
 
Tickets can be purchased from, and donations sent to:
    Atty Tim Houten

If you have questions, contact Tim directly or feel free to contact me and I'll follow up.

BROWNSEA II, July 2-8 2017

Posted on Mar 18 2017 - 8:20pm

Brownsea II is a unique and exciting hands on approach designed to teach youth leadership skills through the actual practice and use of Scout Skills.

Skills most closely concentrated on are camping, hiking, nature study, pioneering, and cooking. This course closely parallels the first Scout camp conducted by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. This program places special emphasis on Scout skills, teaching and practice; the purpose of Scouting; and the role of the patrol method within the troop program.

It is not done by classroom lecture, but rather by programs of skill, leadership exercise, and patrol competition. Scouts who complete the program will have a better awareness of their own strengths and weaknesses for their personal leadership styles.

COURSE: Sunday July 2nd, 2017, (12:00 Noon) through Saturday, July 8th, 2017 at TL Storer Scout Reservation, Barnstead New Hampshire.

REQUIREMENTS: All Scouts need to be First Class or above and have attended a one-week summer camp experience. Ages should be between 13-16 years old. We are looking for those Scouts that will be the future leaders of their home troops.

If you are interested in attending Brownsea and meet the listed requirements; you need to submit a letter of interest including your requirements and why Troop 19 should sponsor you to attend.  This letter needs to be turned into the scoutmaster no later than the Tuesday, March 28th troop meeting.

PRE-TRAINING: Once accepted, the Scouts and Troop leader/parent will be required to attend a Brownsea meeting in May/June 2017. Specific questions will be answered at this meeting and a skill assessment of Scout needs will be given.
