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.

Scouts and Scouters,

I want to remind you that this Thursday at 8.p.m we will have a tap-out ceremony for the Order of the Arrow. Please bring your headlamp and appropriate clothing to be outside.

As well, scouts who still have outstanding gear such as tents, action packers etc. need to return them this Thursday.

Finally, we ask that any Knights of Columbus fundraising tickets and money be returned this week. They must be turned in soon to the Knights of Columbus.

See you all Thursday!


Mr. Behm

Super Cash Bonanza Tickets

Posted on Mar 17 2015 - 7:31pm

Scouts and Parents if you have sold any of the SUPER CASH BONANZA tickets please bring the money and the tickets to the meeting on Thursday. Don’t forget that each ticket you sell is $2.00 in your Scout account which is a great way to earn a few dollars towards one of the outings in the future.

Troop 940 Facebook Group is Now Live!

Posted on Mar 11 2015 - 6:07pm

Attention everyone:

The brand new Troop 940 Facebook group is now open and ready. The group will offer a great place to discuss scouting and share stories, photos, videos and other types of media such as the Facebook page for Scouting Magazine (I find their links to be very informative as well as great ideas to share for Court of Honor and ideas for sewing merit badges). All sorts of things can be shared when using Facebook to connect; this can be a positive experience!
