SUMMER FUN IN JUNE, JULY, AND AUGUST:
The Troop Committee is in the process of planning another exciting Frontiering year. We are excited about the options available for the upcoming year and looking forward to getting started. Meanwhile, during the summer months, we still get together once a month for an activity. This year we have planned a Family Picnic in June, a Community Service project and Pool Party in July, and Putt-Putt for August. We are also looking at attending a baseball game. So get ready for some summer fun.

TOC JULY 4TH CELEBRATION:
This year, we are participating in the Town of Christiansburg July 4th Festival from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Downtown Christiansburg to promote the Family Of Scouting programs sponsored by the Christiansburg Presbyterian Church. So, if you plan to attend the festival, please help to promote our scouting programs by wearing your uniforms, if you have one. Also, stop by our booth and say Hi. And don’t forget to tell your friends to stop by so that they can get information the programs that we offer as well as some information on other like programs in the New River Valley area. We hope to have information to help others find the right organization for them, no matter where they live.

So, come out and be part of the experience. Join us and the Town of Christiansburg as we celebrate July 4th in Downtown Christiansburg. Put on your Class A or your Class B uniforms, come out, and help our Family Of Scouting program promotion efforts.

CSP: ADOPT-A-STREET PROGRAM:
It is that time again. Our Community Service Project (CSP): Adopt-A-Street Program will be held on Sunday, July 21, at 2:00 p.m.. We will be collecting trash again. Remember that this is a four-part event and this will cover the final part. So wear your Class B uniform, bring your gloves, and let's get ready to do some community service. We will meet in the CES parking lot. There is no rain date set, so if the weather is bad (raining, snowing, ice on the ground, etc.), the event will be canceled and not rescheduled.

POOL PARTY:
Our annual pool party is Saturday, July 27, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Frog Pond. This is a family event, so bring the family out for a great time. So plan to come out and have some fun in the pool. No uniforms required. We look forward to seeing you there.

UNIFORMS:
Just a reminder that uniforms are required for all our frontiers and are to be worn in their entirety to all frontiering functions unless otherwise noted. For more information about Troop uniforms, see the “Uniforms” page under the “About” tab on the main menu bar. For those who have just joined, we understand that uniforms are shipped after the purchase and that there is a delay of up to three weeks on some items. Please do not let you lack of not having a uniform prevent you from coming to any of our meetings, event, or functions. We do allow time for your delivery to arrive.

FAMILY OF SCOUTING PROGAM:
Our scouting programs will not participate in the official Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Family Scouting program because we already have an alternative scout like program for girls that is a part of our Family of Scouting program. Frontier Girls Troop 377 was launched in January 2016 as an alternative scouting-type program for the highly active and spirited young girls who wanted to experience a program that mirrored one that many of their brothers, who had joined the BSA program experienced. Because the “Frontier Girls” program itself permits a seamless integration with the local BSA programs, the program is the perfect complement to the existing BSA scouting programs already sponsored by the Christiansburg Presbyterian Church, but one that would cater specifically to the young girls in the community. If you have family members or friends that you think would be interested in any of our Family of Scouting programs, please share this information with them. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP:
It is “Not Too Late For Frontiering” and we could use your help spreading the word. If you know of a young girl who would benefit from the Frontiering program, please invite the entire family to our next Troop meeting or to our next Pack meeting.

This would a great way for them to see firsthand what the Frontiering program and our Troop are all about. Please share this information with your friends because they may know someone who could benefit from these great programs. If they have any questions before the meeting, please have them to contact our Troop Leadership. Once again, we thank you for your help.

WEBSITE UPDATES:
Welcome to our website. Our website team is diligently working to build a more user-friendly website that will grant access to information about our Troop as well as updates and news from our Troop. Most websites have what is referred to as “a site map,” which is very similar to the “table of content” one finds at the beginning of a book. This table of content lists the pages of the particular website with active links. This map is designed to help visitors to easily navigate through the website and help visitors easily find the exact content they are looking for on the website. While our site continues to be a “work-in-progress,” we believe this addition will be beneficial to all who visit. You can find our Site Map under the “About” tab on the main menu bar.
