Oops

The Poulsen brothers have now been correctly identified in the previous post.

Congratulations to all who participated in flags this year. I understand that over 100 flags decorated our town.

Good Job!

Popcorn Fundraiser – Update

Hello everyone, things have really changed from past years with the popcorn fundraiser. A major change is ALL scouts must register to sell to get credit for their sales. Registering is easy just go to Trails-End.com Once there click on register (it is in the top right corner). In the last page of the registration you will need to fill in the council, district and unit. Council = Pathway to Adventure, District = Thunderbird, Unit = Troop 533. 
At that point the scout sales page will appear. The next thing to do is have the Trails-end app added to a smart phone. Orders can now be taken on this app. With this app credit card sales can be taken. The scout will be able to keep track of all his sales on the app page.


After the scout is registered and starts selling with his app the sales will show up on Troop 533’s Trails-end site. I will be able to then order popcorn and deliver it to the scout so he can make deliveries to customers on a more timely basis.
I will be at troop meetings to answer questions.

Thank you,– 
Michael Barton Popcorn Kernel

Popcorn Fundraiser

Hello Scouts and Scouters. My name is Michael Barton. After a number of years Keith Wolak has stepped down from the popcorn fundraiser. I have assumed his position as the new POPCORN KERNEL for troop 533. I have only been with the troop for a few months, as such I am still learning how things are done within the troop. I hope you will bear with me.

The popcorn fundraiser is kicking off a couple of weeks earlier than in past years. I will be sending out information a quickly as it can be put together. I do not plan on changing any of the practices/policies from last year. If you are at the troop meeting tonight I will have take order forms to give out.
Thank you,
Michael Barton

Troop and the VFW Conduct Flag Retirement Ceremony

The Munster Veterans Memorial was the site of a flag retirement ceremony for over 500 flags that have served us well.

Retiring Old Glory

When the United States flag (Old Glory) becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag, and the old flag should be “retired” with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation’s flag.

Representatives of the VFW and Boy Scouts of America were on hand to carry out this task today at the memorial site.
