New 'Troop 125" 60 Year Anniversary Patches

Hi everyone,

The new 60 Year Anniversary, Troop 125 Should Patches are in and in my possession.    For any Scout wanting to purchase one to replace the 55 Year Anniversary shoulder patch, I will be at tomorrow's Troop Meeting.   This is an optional update to your existing shoulder patch.

The cost per patch is $ 3.00 / each.    Please be prepared and either bring Cash or Check (Made out to Troop 125) with you.   Patches will be provided upon payment.

ASM's will be provided one at no cost.

Please see me at the meeting tomorrow if you are interested.

Second to None Chili Cook Off


Just want to clarify that, even though the Order of the Arrow Ceremony runs concurrently with the Chili Cook Off, the Cook Off is a separate event. The Cook Off is considered a Troop function, and all available Scouts are expected to participate. Families are highly encouraged to join in on the fun.

Please consider entering a chili in the contest. The more chili the merrier! This is a very "non-competitive" competition! The focus is on the fun and the feasting!

If you have any questions, please contact me.


Mr. Gerhard

This Week in Troop 125...

Hello Troop 125!


This week isn't very busy. But, it is Patrol Week! That means all patrol leaders need to have a meeting of some sort to keep good communication between you and your patrol. Patrol Leaders- I suggest your meetings be about hiking. Make sure you do have a meeting so you can get credit for you position! If you have any questions, please let me know.
