Scouting for Food - April 17, 2021

Hunger exists in every county of Indiana. Overall food insecurity ranges from a low of 9 percent of the population in Hamilton County to 19% in Marion County. The national average food insecurity rate across all counties is 14 percent.

Troops 133/1033 will be participating in the Spring 2021 Crossroads BSA Scouting for Food drive this week. Similar to last fall, we are asking our scouts to distribute bags in their own neighborhood early in the week, and collect the canned goods the following Saturday morning.  Scouts who participate will earn service hours towards rank advancement. Plus, a Scout is Helpful! 

Bags and stickers will be handed out on Monday 4/12/2021 during the Troop meeting at the Holt House.  If you cannot attend the meeting, send Gary an email and we can coordinate a time for bag hand off. 

Bags will be collected Saturday 4/17/2021 at 9am at the Holt House.

Below is a list link with most needed items:

Collected food will be donated to a local food pantry on Saturday morning.

Ransburg 2021 Schedule

Posted on Apr 11 2021 - 7:15pm

Merit Badge classes have been registered for T133 scouts.  It was quite a hectic morning, with three adult leaders logging on Saturday at 8:59am, along with every other troop from every other week! 

A few of the more popular classes filled fast (swimming at 2pm for example), so we had to make some last minute adjustments to the schedules and move some swimmers to 9am.

Attached is a copy of the current class schedule. Take a look at it with your scout and let Brian Moldt know if you need to make any adjustments. 

Holt House Work Day - Saturday 4/17/21

Posted on Apr 11 2021 - 7:14pm

Troop Families,

After a year of neglect, the Holt House is in desperate need of some TLC.  We are planning a work day on Saturday 4/17/21 from 9-5.  Details will follow later this week, but we will plan to clean the Holt House, the Garage, the Trailers, organize gear, perhaps some yard work as well.  Thanks in advance!

Health Forms Due Required for 2021

Posted on Apr 11 2021 - 1:40pm

All Scouts and Adults are required to complete an updated Health Form for Calendar Year 2021. 

Anyone participating in Troop 133 and Troop 1033 activities (Scouts AND Adults) must complete Parts A, B and C of the attached Health Form including the doctor signature on Part C.  If you've already had a physical this year, you can send the form to your doctor for signature. These are absolutely required for summer camp, but we also need them for Troop weekend outings.  

Nicole Goodman will be collecting forms.  If you've already turned in one to her for Sea Base, that one is good for a year and therefore no need to update it.  But if you weren't on the Sea Base trip, chances are that she still needs your form(s). 

You can send them to her via email:
nsshook@yahoo.com

or mail to her or drop off in her mail box:
7256 Briarwood Ct
Indianapolis, IN 46250

We need these forms ASAP to participate in scout outings.  Please try to get these to Nicole by the end of April.
