Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!! 

Troop 940 is chartered by St. John Parish of West Chester, and is in the Fort Hamilton District of the Dan Beard Council.  We meet on Thursday nights, 7:00pm to 8:30pm, at the St. John Center. Celebrating 35 years of Scouting.

This message is for all scouts and adults interested in having a say in
next year's program and activities.

APLCOR (Annual Patrol Leaders Council Offsite Retreat) is Troop 940's
annual planning meeting.  It will be held this year on June 11 at the
nearby Timberhill Reservable Area (near Rentschler Forest).  We will
meet Saturday morning, and the scouts will participate in a mix of planning and team building activities.  We will camp overnight Saturday
night, and dismiss first thing Sunday morning.
You do not have to be in a leadership position to participate.  Everyone
is welcome and encouraged to attend.  For many scouts, this is a great
chance to step up to new responsibilities in the troop as the new Senior
Patrol Leader fills out the boy leadership.  For adults, it is a great
chance to understand how the outing program works, since many are
bewildered about how all this stuff happens.

The cost of this outing is $15 to cover the cost of the facility and
meals.  As usual, you may sign up and pay on the troop website.  If you
prefer to pay by check or scout account form, please see me at an
upcoming meeting.  Mercifully, there is NO WAIVER required for this
laid-back event.

Remember, this is YOUR chance to have a say in how the troop works.

Hope to see you there!  Sign up today!

Hello Troop 940!

It's time to get prepared for our Troop's primary fundraiser.  Last year we raised $14,000 with the program providing great community spirit and service. The money goes to the boys to help defer their scouting expenses.  This year looks to be bigger and better but we need everyone's help.  If you're new to the troop and haven't been involved yet now's the time.  We've got spots for everyone to participate on the 10 routes covering our community.  We're losing 15 boys from last year due to age (turning 18 and leaving scouts) and attrition so I need everyone to get involved and help.  
Don't worry if you aren't around for all 6 posting days.  3 are the traditional summer holidays (Memorial, Independence, and Labor Day) and 3 are the less traveled holidays (Flag, Veterans, and Patriots).  We like to assign 4-5 families to each route so you can share the responsibilities.  If you don't like to get up early and post the flags, we can use you to retire the flags in the evening.  It's a wonderful experience for the family, only takes about an hour and you will get tremendous pride and patriotic spirit from participating!
