"Setting the Standard"

Vol. 1, Issue 1 - December 2015

Welcome to the new Troop 324 newsletter!

A Scout is Thrifty!!! As you all know, it's not cheap to buy ink and paper. After checking a few options, I have decided to go digital with the newsletter. I am hoping that this will also work better for all of you. Now I need your help! If you take pictures during meetings, camp outs, events, please forward them to me so I can possibly use them in our newsletters. Also, if any of you, Scouts or adults, would like to submit an article for the newsletter, please feel free to email me at
