8/30: UPDATE, Special Event

Posted on Aug 30 2015 - 5:29pm
Well Done Troop 40.  Thank you Blessed Sacrament.
We need all Scouts to meet in Johnston Hall at 9:15am.  After making sure that everything is set up, we will head to the Sanctuary for Mass.  There will be a reserved area in the Sanctuary for us to sit in.  Don't forget to wear your full Class "A" uniforms! 
Hello everyone,
As a troop, we have been very dependent on Blessed Sacrament Church for a while now. We are almost ready to go back to Asbury, but we'd like to thank them for letting us stay. So, on Sunday, August 30, we will be attending their 10:00am mass, and providing the church with coffee and donuts afterwards. We'd like everyone to go. Also, we will need volunteers to help with the organizing and execution of this event. Sign up on the website if you can go, and contact Neal Visvalingam (neal.visvalingam@gmail.com) if you would like to help with this event.

12/11: Wreaths Across America In DC

Posted on Aug 20 2015 - 4:49pm

This will be a weekend trip.  St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Arlington has graciously invited us to stay at the church again this year.  We will arrive at the Church Friday evening. 

On Saturday, we will ride the Metro to Arlington Cemetery and help lay wreaths on the grave sites.  After we finish there, we will spend the rest of the day touring the sites in downtown DC.  This year we hope to include a tour of the U.S. Capitol!

We will attend St. Mary's early Sunday church service before leaving for Harrisonburg.

Please sign up on the Calendar as soon as possible.

Ruritan Service Opportunity

Posted on Aug 12 2015 - 4:53pm

Massanutten District Scouters,

Last year we helped out the McGaheysville Ruritan’s at their food booth at the Rockingham County Fair and got a $3,000 donation to our District Friends of Scouting campaign as a result. They were so happy to have us that they invited us back again!

What we need are adults (18+) to help them man their fryers during the evenings at the fair. By signing up for a shift you are

  • Ensuring our District’s largest donor is able to continue supporting our Scouts at a $3,000+ level
  • Getting free entrance to the fair for the entire day of your desired shift
  • Able to eat as much funnel cake as you want
  • HAVING LOADS OF FUN (If you are lucky enough to get on a shift with Dr. Doug Wright you might just be serenaded!)

Please consider signing you, your family, your unit, or just a group of friends up for a shift or two!!!
