CANCELLED – Camp Blanding
Aug 20th, 2009 by Troop110

ATTENTION –
The Camp Blanding camping trip has been postponed.

The questionable weather will keep campers off the climbing tower and off a good portion of the training facilities. With those events being the major portion of activities for the weekend the troop leadership decided to postpone the trip to a later date. Stay tuned for a future trip to Camp Blanding.

Urgent News from Our Scout Executive
Jul 14th, 2009 by Troop110

Dear Scouting Community:

Suddenly and surprisingly, the United Way of Northeast Florida informed the North Florida Council, Boy Scouts of America that we will be receiving $147,000 less than last year to support the Council’s Positive Youth Development/Scouting Program & the Council’s ScoutReach program- serving at-risk-youth in subsidized housing communities in Jacksonville.  The North Florida Council is committed to delivering the Scouting and ScoutReach Program; however, quality program delivery is threatened in light of this reduced funding from the United Way of Northeast Florida.

CLICK HERE to learn more and to help the Council make up the shortfall of funds from the United Way.

Also, please forward this email to everyone in your email address book!  Any and all support is greatly needed and deeply appreciated!

Thanks for your continued interest and support of Scouting!

Jack L. Sears, Jr.
Scout Executive/CEO

Eagle Continues to Soar
Jun 19th, 2009 by Troop110

Beau Wittmer keeps achieving stellar heights – In addition to earning Eagle, Beau is also school Valedictorian and got a perfect score on a National Latin Exam.

Excerpt from Episcopal High School’s Website…
“Valedictorian Earns Perfect Score on National Latin Exam – Posted May 14, 2009 – Episcopal’s valedictorian, Beau Wittmer ’09, has achieved a perfect score on the 2009 National Latin Exam. Less than one percent of students who took the exam earned a perfect score … Beau has attended Episcopal for six years, and has plans to attend Yale University in the fall.”

From Troop 110 to Beau:
Congrats from all of us!  We know you can soar even higher… alis aquilae!
