On October 6, Troop 261 will be holding it's annual Chili Cook-off at the First Uited Methodist Church.  This is a great opportunity to showcase your Chili expertise and get to know the families of your child's friends.  It's also a great opportunity to catch up with old friends.  We will be having a parents meeting afterward.  I will be giving an update in regard to the direction of the troop and will also answer any questions and/or concerns you may have.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of you there.

Volunteer Opportunities

Posted by ksullivan on Aug 29 2015 - 8:23am

The Castle Rock Downtown Alliance has asked for our help running, mainly set-up and clean up.  They have offered to make a donation to our troop for every event worked.  That money will go to your scout accounts, unless you want community service hours.  Below are the dates and events.  Most of these events take place at Festival Park.  Please let me know if you are able to help.  As always we ask the adults to help out and support our troop.
