With the greatest reluctance and a heavy heart I am writing to let you know that we have canceled all Troop 150 activities indefinitely.
I am truly sorry for the Scouts who will not experience cross over. I am truly sorry for the disappointment that must be felt by all our Scouts, whether veterans or just beginning to transition into our Troop, particularly our first class of young women. I am truly sorry that ours is yet another in long, long list of cancellations at this extraordinary and unprecedented time in our nation’s history.
We recite the Scout oath and law at every meeting. Sometimes when we repeat something often enough, that repetition leads us to gloss over the depth and meaning of what we are actually saying. As I was typing this note and thinking of our canceled meetings and that recitation, I paused and went through both, slowly. There is much to draw on.
It’s definitely a time to be clean!
We should help others, particularly in this time of need.
Be kind. Be courteous. These are stressful times for all, and kindness goes a long way.
We are having and informational meeting to get things started, please
join the leaders for a meeting in Calvin Hall at St Andrews on Monday,
March 2nd, at 7 pm. Regular troop meetings are on Wednesdays at 7 pm in
Friendship Hall. Email Info@Troop150.org if you have any questions.
Camp Meriwether (Link) is just 20 minutes west of Tillamook, Oregon, Camp Meriwether offers Scouts a beach front camping experience with unobstructed views of the Pacific ocean. Camp Meriwether sits on 720 acres of Scout property with 2 miles of beachfront property where Scouts can whale watch, wave jump, land sail, launch water rockets, build sand forts and castles, and spend the day on the beach with close friends.

Each year Troop 150 has its only fundraising event. The troop pre-sells Christmas tree recycling service in November and December. Pre-mapped sales routes are used to sell our service. Then in early January we pick up and recycle all trees. Scouts and adults earn shares for their scouts account base on how much they participate. This activity is time consuming and takes effort by all scouts and parents. It teaches the scouts how to present themselves to the public, builds confidence, and teaches the rewards of hard work.
