No Troop Meeting Tonight

There will not be a troop meeting tonight because the Vernon schools are closed today due to the effects of last night’s storm.

INCLEMENT WEATHER – When Vernon schools are cancelled
due to snow or ice (or any other reason schools are closed) there
will be no Scout Meeting.


Update For Saturday 10/19

The hike that was discussed at the 10/10 troop meeting that was going to replace the day trip to the Nolan property will be rescheduled to a later date so that the troop can focus on the service hours available at the Strong Family Farm Harvest Festival on Saturday 10/19.


Strong Family Farm Harvest Festival Update

There are 2 service hour opportunities on Oct 19 at Strong Family Farm. They need help in the morning setting up from 8:30-10:00 and tearing down from 2:00-4:00. Also, Mr. Houghtaling will man the 2020 vendor table (would like some company). We can’t give out food, so need to find some trinket give aways and maybe have a game people can play. He’d like to get an idea of headcount ASAP, so please email ( or text (860-308-4869) him if and when you can make it.
