Happy New Year!
First and foremost, happy new year to Troop 750 families and friends! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Thank you as well to those who helped plan, setup, and to those that attended our year-end celebration.
Our next outing is the Hopewell District Klondike Derby. The Klondike Derby will be held Saturday, January 14, 2017. Start the trail between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (12 team slots on each half hour). Trail closes at 3:00 p.m. We should have teams signed up already for those that wanted to participate.

Philmont Crew & Parents
As announced at the troop holiday dinner, we will need to collect a payment of $150 by January 12th to reserve Amtrak transportation to Philmont. This is part of the total estimated cost to attend Philmont of approximately $1,600. Final costs for this trip will be announced later this spring. As always, payments can be made from a scout account or by check made out to Troop 750. To make this payment, please see Mark Washington or Spencer Beeching at the troop meeting. If for any reason you can’t make it to a troop meeting by January 12th, please let Ben Zumker know and we’ll work out another way to collect the payment.
More information forthcoming, but mark your calendars now for the first Sunday of February, February 5 th. The troop will be providing breakfast to the church, and attend church services (in full class A uniform) and serve as ushers, worship leaders and provide the children’s sermon.
Donate Your Used Shoes on Scout Sunday
Troop 750 and Heritage Presbyterian Church are partnering to participate in Dan Beard Council’s first council-wide Good Turn Project by collecting used shoes. The shoes will then be given to Soles4Souls, a non-profit group dedicated to “Wearing out Poverty” by distributing your old shoes to people in need. Our Scouts will be accepting your old shoes at our Scout Sunday Services on February 5, 2017 (and Troop mtg on February 2, 2017). Please rubber-band the shoes together or tie the laces together.
The next troop leadership term is almost here (February 2017 – July 2017), as well as OA elections. More information coming so please look for it. Troop elections will be held February 2nd, and Order of the Arrow elections the following Thursday, February 9th. If you are interested in a leadership position with the troop, or interested in being elected in to the OA, you need to be at these meetings!
