Greetings Troop 48!Lake Forest Day is a ways off yet, but now is the time to sign up!
As many of you know, Troop #48 assists the American Legion Post with the Lake Forest Day parade and carnival. The Troop helps sell raffle tickets, post flags and by setting up, staffing booths and tearing down the Lake Forest Days festival. Lake Forest Day presents a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate leadership AND earn service for advancement and Citizenship in the Community merit badge. For those under 1st Class, volunteering will also count as a Troop or Patrol activity! Take a look at the signup pages on the website and sign up for the Parade and to work the LF Days concession stand. All scouts are asked to participate in the Parade. PLC members, by nature of Leadership agreements, are committed to participating in the Parade. We will also need Adult Leaders available to supervise the Parade and LF Days concession sales.

Troop 48 summer starts!

Posted on Jun 16 2015 - 3:08pm

A short note from Scoutmaster Jim Holmes noting how the Scouting summer is starting for Troop 48!

"Yesterday morning was Flag Day. It was a raining in the morning so as I showed up to pull the flags out and bring them to town, Past Commander Marks stopped me and instead we just loaded up the Blue flags for Market Square. There wasn't time to send out an email and I didn't have my correct phone with me in any case to do so.
