Annual Greens Sale
Troop 28’s most important fundraising activity is the sale of holiday greens, flowers, bulb kits and fruit to our neighbors and friends each autumn.
Become a Merit Badge Counselor
Scouts can earn merit badges in 120 different areas. Parents of Troop 28 Scouts are approved counselors for many of the most popular merit badges—but we always need more! World-class expertise is not required to be a good counselor. Many of the key required badges--F amily Life, Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the Nationsize: small;">, Citizenship in the World, Communications, Personal Fitness and Personal Management, for example—require no more than basic “grown-up” knowledge.
To volunteer to help as a merit badge counselor, contact Assistant Scoutmaster Tom Welch here. Download the application form here, or send us an e-mail to request an application.
Help as an Adult Leader
Parents can help the troop flourish in many different ways: by providing transportation for our monthly outings and service projects, by serving on the troop committee, by offering their knowledge as merit badge counselors, and by serving as assistant scoutmasters or in other capacities.
