- Chip and the other organizers of the Our Lady of Grace Festival are very appreciative of all the time Troop 834 has put in to help make the festival such a huge success. They’d like to thank everybody who came and set up, worked evenings during the week, and took down the festival.
- Troop 834 is hoping to hold a fundraiser at Frosty Valley Golf Links near the end of October. Whether you golf or not, bring your friends and enjoy a round of 9 holes with the troop! In order for this to happen, we need to have at least 40 golfers. If you or anybody else you know is interested, let Chip know.

- This meeting was focused on planning the upcoming year. Chip heard the scouts’ suggestions for summer camp, weekend camp outs, and day trips. Plenty of great ideas were brought up, but final decisions will be made after further discussion among the adults.
- If you haven’t already, make sure you sign up to work our booth at the OLG Festival. Set-up begins August 1.
Message from David Domalik – “Huge thanks to everybody who spent their day to come out and help build the ga-ga pit for my Eagle Project. I’d also like to thank Keystone Oaks School District, Coach Cliff’s Gaga Ball Pits, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, and my family for their help in funding the project. If you haven’t heard of the game ga-ga before, look it up online and check out the pit behind Aiken Elementary for yourself.”
The project had a great turn-out, with much of the troop showing up. The boards were drilled in no time and went together easily in the brackets. After adding a cut-out, wall covers, and rules sign, Troop 834 had a blast playing ga-ga in the newly built octagon.
Pictures of the project can be found on the page “Pictures“. If you need to know how many hours you spent working, contact email@example.com. The Keystone Oaks School District is always looking for more scouts to do eagle projects, so feel free to approach them with your ideas.
In addition to running the drink booth, the festival has plenty of other volunteer opportunities.
August 5 @ 7 pm – Finishing booth setup (Tarps and placement)
August 9 – Donations Due
This list will continue to grow. See Mrs. Fisher to sign up for the drink booth. See Chip for all other events.
Every year Troop 834 helps our sponsoring organization by running the drink booth at their annual festival. It’s getting closer to that time of year again and the troop is ready to start taking sign-ups for shifts. The first shift is from 6:30-8 pm and the second shift is 8 pm to close, August 10-15. Ideally, at least 2 scouts and 1 adult should work each shift. To see what slots are open and sign-up, contact Jen Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
