HELP NEEDED !
We're very saddened to share some news from Boy Scout Troop 187, Ridge -
Sometime between Sunday, October 2nd and Friday, October 7th, someone broke into the Troop’s trailer and the Middle Island Presbyterian Church’s storage container. Roughly $1,100.00 of scouting equipment was stolen, including tents, lanterns, a complete patrol box and other items. A police report was filed; however, the boys are now without their equipment and need YOUR HELP!
If anyone is able to donate funds to help the Troop recuperate some of their stolen items, donations can be mailed to:

POPULATE YOUR "PIN"
Currently the primary method for new families and interested youth to find out more about Scouting is the BeAScout.org website. Individuals can visit the site, put in their zip code and find out units in their area. When they click on a unit they are given contact information for that unit so they may either call or send an email to find out more.
We realize many of you may NOT be the Top Leader or Committee Chairperson of the unit but we need you to check out your pin at www.BeAScout.org
. Put in your zip code and when the units come up click on your unit and see what information is listed. If the information is the council it needs to be changed to the unit information. Now if it's not populated here is the information you need to populate the pin. Please be aware that Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Crew Advisors, along with the Unit Committee Chair and the Chartered Organization Representatives are the only volunteers who have first-time access to set up the BeAScout.org pin. These leaders will then be able to set up a total of 6 individuals in the unit to access the editing features of BeAScout.org.
