A message from Steve Kallesser:    As some of you are aware, Troop Committee Chair John Paciga and I have been working on a transition plan for that role since February/March.  In that plan, I began serving as Asst. Committee Chair while learning from John.  In accordance with that plan, on Friday we swapped positions as I continue to work with John and try to gain as much of his knowledge about the troop and its history.  John will continue to serve as Assistant Troop Committee Chair through the end of this calendar year.

A huge “thank you” goes out to John Paciga for his excellent job of stewarding Troop 121 to be an outstanding example of the Scouting program for so many years. Feel free to join us at the Troop Committee meeting on Tuesday June 25 if you want to thank him in person.

Welcome Troop 610

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Jun 15 2019 - 1:03pm

Please join me in congratulating Clinton's newest Scouts BSA troop:

Troop 610, chartered by Clinton Presbyterian Church.  As all of you are aware, some of the girls in our area have been attempting to form a troop for some time.  On Friday afternoon, they have succeeded in their initial goal, and we welcome them onto the Scouting trail with the assistance of their Scoutmaster, Mr. Tom Brankner.

Hiking Merit Badge

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Jun 15 2019 - 8:20am

From Mr Kallesser: I will be offering Hiking MB for all those who present me a blue card on Monday night.  If you have already gotten a blue card from Mr. Smith, then please give it to me then.  If you have not, then please get one from Mr. Zahorchak on Monday night and give that to me.  If you won't be at the Monday night, then email me so I can reserve a spot for you.

The main feature of Hiking MB is a series of hikes of increasing mileage that ***MUST*** be done in a particular order.  It is my intent to have the hike that Troop 121 will be taking at Gettysburg to count as one of the 10-mile hikes.  In order for that to count for you, then you must take a 5-mile hike before the Gettysburg trip.  To help with this endeavor, Mr. Zelasny and myself will be leading a 5+ mile hike on Friday June 21.  We will be leaving from Clinton Presbyterian Church at 10am and we will return at about 3pm.  If you can't make that hike, don't fret!  You can arrange with me to do the 5-mile hike locally on your own (meaning with a buddy), so long as you tell me how you intend to do it.  (The Columbia Trail in High Bridge and the Lansdowne Trail here in Clinton are good options for doing it on your own.)

So let me know on Monday night both if you want to take the merit badge and if you want to take the hike on Friday (seats in my vehicle and Mr. Zelasny's vehicle are first-come-first-served).

-Mr. Kallesser
Troop Committee Chair

PS Any parents interested in a pleasant Friday hike on the Appalachian Trail should let me know, also.
