Solar Eclipse 2024!

Posted on Apr 3 2024 - 10:35pm

Some of you recall a solar eclipse that was visible in the United States in 2017.  On Monday, the path of this month's solar eclipse will cross the country and provide an opportunity for those in the United States to view a complete blocking of the sun (a total solar eclipse)!  Even if you aren't able to travel to one of the locations in the path of totality, the eclipse will still be visible in Florida.

Wreath Fundraiser

Posted on Oct 9 2023 - 8:07pm

Once again it's time for our annual Wreath Fundraiser.  This is the easiest fundraiser you will ever do!  To participate, you send out this website www.giftitforward.com to any friend, family or neighbor.  The customer will go to the website and will enter your name and the troop code TR617FL001, they then order with product(s) they want.  They pay for it online, and then the company sends it directly to them.  As a scout, you will not have to deal with money or delivery.  Each scout will get $7.20/product for their scout account.  Each of the wreaths are made from fresh pine trees.  They smell great and last for several weeks. The current deliver time is the week before Thanksgiving, just in time for the holiday season. Each tree that is cut down to make a wreath is then replaced with a replanted tree.  If more information is needed, please see Mrs. Sherman.
