Scouting For Food - January 27 and February 3

Posted on Jan 18 2018 - 2:21pm

Scouting for Food is a council-wide service project to care for people in our local communities who are hungry and those in need. In partnership with the Houston Food Bank and "Souper Bowl of Caring," the project begins Saturday, January 27, 2018, as Scouts distribute door hangers in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Scouts return the following Saturday, February 3, 2018, to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries.  Troop 825 will once again collect from the Whispering Oaks neighborhood bounded by Memorial, Gessner and Stoney Creek Dr.  We will meet at the Teel's house (135 Stoney Creek Drive) at 9am on both Saturdays.  It typically takes about an 60-90 minutes each day.

Annual Troop Dues

Posted on Jan 18 2018 - 2:21pm

The Troop Committee reviewed the annual budget for 2018 and has agreed to leave the annual dues unchanged at $325.  This is expected to cover all costs excluding summer camp and order of the arrow.  The budget includes camping fees, food, activities, awards, training, software, equipment and similar items.  Dues should be paid by the end of January by check made payable to BSA Troop 825.  Payments may be provided to Chris Swinbank, Treasurer, or to Skip Teel, Scoutmaster.  Many thanks in advance for your timely payment.  If you have any questions, please contact Chris or Skip.

2018 Summer Camp

Posted on Jan 18 2018 - 1:58pm

Summer 2018 scout summer camp will be in Colorado.  Base camp for younger scouts will be at San Isabel Scout Ranch and older scouts will be able to do high adventure activities at Rocky Mountain High Adventure Base.  We will be at camp from June 17 to the 23rd and there will be a day or two of travel before and after.  This seems like a long ways away but we are already making payments to the camps and working on logistics.  Therefore, please indicate if you plan to participate by registering here  as soon as possible.  Our next payment is due January 15.  Please indicate in the notes if you will do base camp or high adventure.  For high adventure, all youth participants must have been 13 years old by January 1, or have completed the seventh grade before attending camp.

Order of the Arrow Dues

Posted on Jan 2 2018 - 1:39pm

Henry Teel, the troop OA Representative, reminds OA members that Colonneh Lodge dues are renewed annually.  An active member in Colonneh Lodge is someone who is a currently registered Scout or Scouter in the Sam Houston Area Council with current dues paid. With active membership, you are entitled to attend all functions of the lodge appropriate for your honor level. It also entitles you to wear your OA flap. Technically, if you don't pay your dues, you are not a member, and the flap should be removed from your uniform.  For more information please click here.  Each OA members pays his own dues.
