Touch-A-Truck NRV Festival Event – August 14


AUGUST UPDATE:
As we draw near to the end of our summer activities and prepare for the start of the new school year, we also look forward to the start of a new Scouting year. The Pack Committee is in the final stages of planning another exciting Scouting year and we are excited about the program that we have put together for our scouts. We are looking forward to getting started and hope that you are as well.

SUMMER RECRUITMENT AND PROMOTIONS:
During the summer vacation, we will be out and about promoting our Cub Scouts and Frontier Girls programs. We currently plan to participate in the Touch-A-Truck NRV Festival at Uptown Mall in August. If you find yourself free and available to attend this event, please put on your uniforms (Class A or Class B) and come out and help with the promotions. We also ask for your help by spreading the word about our Family of Scouting programs to your family, friends, co-workers, church members, or anyone else you think would enjoy what we have to offer. We offer programs for both boys and girls of all ages in one location, which includes our Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Frontier Girls programs. We refer to this as the Christiansburg Presbyterian Church’s Family of Scouting Program. So, please help us to spread the word about these three awesome programs. We thank you in advance and we look forward to seeing you all out and about.

UNIFORMS:
Just a reminder that Class A 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 Frontier Girls 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, events, or functions. We do allow time for your delivery to arrive.

FAMILY OF SCOUTING PROGAM:
In case you did not know, Christiansburg Presbyterian Church (CPC) offers a Family of Scouting program that consist of Boy Scout Troop 141 (11-18 years old), Cub Scout Pack 141 (5-10 years old), and Frontier Girls Troop 377 (3-18 years old and mothers can play too). Most of you are aware of the BSA scouting programs, but what is Frontier Girls? Our Frontier Girls Troop 377 was started 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 scouting 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 CPC, 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. We each have websites as well as Facebook pages. Should they have any questions, they can always 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.
