Parker Days 2018 – Sign Up Now Open

Published by under Community Service on May 12, 2018

The Parker Days Festival will be held in downtown Parker on June 7 – 10, 2018.    We will also provide one crew for final clean-up on the morning of June 11, 2018.  Each year, Troop 16 provides hundreds of hours of service taking care of all the trash at the Parker Days Festival as the biggest of our 3 annual fund raisers.  All Troop 16 members are required to participate.

 This year the requirement is that every scout needs to work 8 hours during the weekend.  The first 4 hours take care of the commitment needed for the troop.  The second four hours can be used to get a free all day ride pass or to be used as service hours for rank advancement.  The ages next to the signups are just suggestions. Typically our younger scouts (1st and 2nd year scouts) work the morning and day shifts and our older scouts work the late night shifts. Again, these are only suggestions. Please sign up when it is convenient for your family. 

We are asking this year that you do not sign up any siblings this year.  Please feel free to bring them during the shift and we will put them to work, but we want the sign up to be for the scouts.  If you want to let the shift leader know that a sibling is coming that would be very kind, one of our scout laws.

Here is a clarification of the different Adult sign up options:

Shift Leader (Works Troop HQ tent): In years past, scout moms have worked these shifts, but it can be any adult.

Rover (Oversees trash needs in park and typically drives golf cart around getting trash loaded onto cart and taking the trash to the dumpsters.)  

Adult Leader (Leads Scouts in trash pickup. You will walk around with an assigned group of boys to make sure the trash is picked up and work is getting done.)

Lastly, your Parker Days committee (Daniel Faust, Tom Loveland, and Beth Huffman) thank you for your service to the troop. We want to thank everyone that has ever worked at Parker Days as this is a large group effort.  We hear all the time about what a great troop we have and how hard working we are and it makes us smile every time knowing that you all have contributed to the high regard we have within the community.

May 8th Troop Meeting

Published by under T16 on May 6, 2018

Hello Troop 16! Here is the agenda for May 8th.

First of all, this troop meeting will be back at our regular location at Parker United Methodist Church. During the meeting, flags will be done by the Dirty Socks patrol. After flags, we will continue with camp prep for Survivorman.

After Survivorman camp prep, we will be reviewing everything we have been learning for the past few meetings in order to be prepared for Survivorman. If there is extra time, we will play a game.

Lastly, don’t forget in two weeks there will be a court of honor. This means the PLC meeting will be the week before instead of the last week of the month. For those of you that are new, a court of honor occurs at least twice a year and it is when we get recognized for all of our awards we achieved recently.

For those of you that are attending Survivorman, I hope you have fun!

See you all Tuesday!

And the 135th Eagle Scout for Troop 16 is….

May 1st Troop Meeting

Published by under T16 on April 29, 2018

Hello Scouts and Adults! Here is the plan for the May 1st troop meeting.

First of all, remember that we are meeting at the park across the street from Parker United Methodist Church. Remember to bring warm clothes, raingear, and a flashlight to the park. During the meeting, we will doing a navigation challenge. With our patrols, we will be using a compass to find points on a map. This will be the main activity during the meeting.

If you went to the merit badge college this weekend, I hope you accomplished a lot. During the next couple meetings, try to finish up all of the requirements you were not able to complete this weekend.

Don’t forget that this upcoming Saturday will be the church work day. It is a great way to get some service hours towards the rank you are working on. If you are attending, it will begin at 8:00am. Another opportunity for service hours is the National Day of Prayer on Thursday and there is one spot still available.

Lastly, Survivorman is less than 2 weeks away, therefore, if you want to attend, sign up before the deadline on May 8th.

See you all at the park on Tuesday!
