If you haven't visited our Scout-run Facebook page, led by Tom O and Andrew E, now is the time.  If you are a member of Facebook, go to www.facebook.com/troop755 and join.  The objective of this effort is to have fun and to provide interested troop members with what is going in the Troop from the boy's perspective.  Note that this is not an official channel of communication and will not replace e-mails and the Troop website as your official source of information for Troop 755.

As a reminder, Troop 755 is also on Twitter and you can follow us @troop755.  The intent of this effort is to have a little fun as well as provide a central clearinghouse of various Scouting activities that are taking place on Social Media.  We have over 85 followers so far -- please help us get to 100! Don't want to become a Twitter user but would like to stay connected?  You can text "follow troop755" to 40404 and you will receive all of the Troop 755 tweets on your phone as SMS text messages.

If any registered adult leader would like to learn how to publish tweets on the Troop account, please contact the webmaster using the "Contact Us" feature.

REMINDER: Changes to Online Payment

Posted by admin on Feb 5 2014 - 9:57pm

Effective with the November Feast campout, parents who utilize online registration still need to complete and sign the official permission slip and have it dropped off at the registration desk on Monday night.  We have to collect information about any Scout medical issues and medications and unfortunately we do not have the ability to collect this when registering online.  Also as a reminder, when you pay online for a campout, the website will not automatically indicate that you are paid.  This happens manually when PayPal notifies us of your payment.  Keep the e-mail from PayPal as your receipt in order to avoid any disputes.

Regardless of when a Scout earned the Life rank or began working toward Eagle, unless he fulfills all the rank requirements -- with the exception of his Board of Review -- before January 1, he must earn the Cooking merit badge to become an Eagle Scout.

Adult Leader Training

Posted by admin on Nov 21 2013 - 10:36pm

All registered leaders need to be up to date on Youth Protection Training (YPT), which must be repeated every 2 years.  Recently, Mr. McCormick sent a status report to all leaders indicating when each leader last took YPT.    If your last YPT is dated Dec 2012 or earlier, we would ask you to retake it e-mail a copy of your certificate to:  cmccormick@troop755.com to get your record updated.

As always, there is also the chance that you have a more recent YPT than our records indicate.  If so, simply e-mail a copy as above.
