Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope all mothers had a chance to celebrate, rest, and enjoy the day.  Scouts please make sure you give you mother a hug and tell her how thankful you are for everything she does.

NOTE: Meet at Santa Rita Multipurpose Room – 700 Los Altos Ave, Los Altos, CA.  The multipurpose room is in the back left corner of the property.  Scouts will cover requirements T6, S9a and F11.  We will also have patrol discussions on behavior.

Main Troop – Monte Bello MTB Ride
Please be at the Monte Bello OSP parking lot @ 5pm SHARP if you are riding, bring your bike and helmet.
NOTE: There are no other activities planned for the main troop, do not show up if you are not riding!

60th Anniversary Jackets – ORDER NOW!
We are taking orders for two different types of custom-embroidered jackets, a soft shell and a fleece hoody.
Click here to order a 60th anniversary jacket or hoody – Orders and payment must be received by May 23rd 

Annual Planning
On Friday ~20 Scouts from the Green Bar met, presented their research on activities, and voted on what the troop should do for next year.  The results will be reviewed by the Scoutmasters this week and presented to the Committee for approval.  Stay tuned, I think we have another great year lined up for you all!  Click here to see pictures

Summer Camp Orientations – Wednesday 5/30
We will be holding back-to-back orientation sessions on Wednesday 5/30 in Creekside for both summer camps.  Camp Wente will be from 6:00-7:30pm and Camp Oljato will be 7:30-9:00pm.  First-time scouts should attend so they can get all the necessary info.  If you have been to that camp before you need not attend.

Memorial Day Flag Placement
Join scouts from all over the Bay Area to honor the men and women who bravely served our country by placing an American flag at each of the 112,700 graves at the Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno.  Service hours will be awarded and you can receive a commemorative patch.  Click here to sign up.
