Avoid Huron River, Kent Lake, Island Lake

Posted by mchalom on Aug 3 2022 - 5:24pm

Do not go canoeing or swimming in the Huron River (west of Wixom Rd), Kent Lake (Kensington Metropark) or Island Lake.  There has been a chemical spill and the water is contaminated.
Heavner Canoe's business will be significantly affected by this, and they always treat our scouts very well, so maybe we can do a Troop canoe trip with them, once it's all cleaned up.

Luke Heldke Eagle Project Can Drive

Posted by bheldke on Jul 19 2022 - 4:44pm

Hello Troop 755, 

I'm having a can/bottle drive to raise funds for my Eagle Project.-it's a bike maintenance station to be installed at Novi's Lakeshore Park, to be used by both road and mountain bikers.  I have to pour concrete and mount the station.  The station is made by Dero and is approximately $3000.  

I will be collecting cans/bottles all summer.  Attached is the flyer or you can just e-mail or text me (248-843-8909) for a pick up.  

No Cans?  Please consider donating to my GoFundMe.

Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS) Opportunities--required for Asst. Scoutmasters

Posted by bheldke on May 25 2022 - 11:41pm

Added a new June IOLS.

Summer/Fall 2022 Adult Leader Training-IOLS

Since MCC merged into a mega council, we first see if they have training state-wide.  Many times though, if we look south, we have training opportunities in other councils as close to or closer than our own MCC dates.  Some of the two-night camps will integrate SM/ASM-specific classroom training into the course.  

Council Date/Information Camp/Location
Michigan Crossroads (lower peninsula) May 20-22 Sleepy Hollow State Park north of Lansing
Erie Shores (Toledo area)   May 21-22
Camp Miakonda, Toledo
*NEW* Michigan Crossroads (Lower peninsula) June 10-11 Gerber Scout Reservation Twin Lake, MI
