There will be a lost and found table at winter camp this weekend. If any scouts are missing items from summer camp or even the campout last February, they should stop by the table. We have 3 pairs of scout shorts, 1 pair of regular shorts, 1 swim top, 2 jackets and some shoes and socks.

Troop 1001 SWAG - Get your orders in!

Posted on Jan 14 2021 - 10:34pm

Stephanie Molina has taken over from Ms. Bascom managing the Troop 1001 clothes closet and swag inventory.  Order forms for all of the items including new fleece jackets have been added to the Files section of the Troop 1001 website here - https://www.troop1001.org/taxonomy/term/1258

In addition to new troop merchandise, Stephanie maintains the clothes closet.  Since current COVID precautions restrict general access to the scout room, people can bring clothes their boys have outgrown and Stephanie will add it to the inventory. If boys are looking for some gently used items, she can bring the requested items to the meeting.  The current inventory is maintained available in a downloadable PDF in the files sections linked above.

GoFundMe to Support Warm Indoor Winter Troop 1001 Meetings

Posted on Dec 17 2020 - 6:05pm

Parents and friends of Troop 1001, 

Due to the COVID restrictions Trinity Bible Church has in place, we are currently unable to enter the church and are holding troop meetings in the church parking lot. Thankfully, we have found a place large enough for us to safely meet indoors, but we have to rent it. We will be holding meetings there from December to March while the weather is too cold for outdoor gatherings.

During indoor meetings we will be following Circle 10's COVID guidelines to ensure everyone's safety and wellbeing. These precautions include temperature checks at the door, mandatory mask wearing and social distancing at all times. 

In an effort to keep our expenses contained due to a lack of fundraising opportunities this year,  we are asking parents and former members of Troop 1001 to help us raise the funds to offset the cost of renting the space. If you are able to make a donation of any size, we would greatly appreciate it.
