Troop 12 News Catch Up

 Hello Troop 12,

Recent Events - As many of you know, this month is a very active month. We have had our first troop outing in months, a day camp at Thompson Park, and we have many eagle scout projects coming our way. On September 27, 2020, life scout Kenneth Chao successfully completed his eagle scout project. Many Troop 12 members, scouts and adults all came together to contribute to this project. Plants were placed on the perimeter of a wonderful gazebo, and benches were built for the elderly to sit in and enjoy.

Upcoming Events - After this, we have Adityaa Suratkal, Troy Began, and Pranav Muralikrishnan's Eagle Scout projects. Make sure to stay tuned for updates, we need all the help we can get! We are also having an upcoming Court of Awards, something a lot of people have been waiting for a while.

Look below for the final product.

Stay safe,

Neel Raina

Never Forget - 9/11

Never Forget

Hello Troop 12. Today is a day of remembrance. Today we stand, praise, and remember the people of America who lost their lives in a tragic incident 19 years ago today. Today is a day of unity. We are grateful for those first responders who didn’t think twice to go out there to risk their lives for the people in danger. We should all be thankful for the first responders who put their lives on the lines for our safety. On September 11, 2001, everyone came together in unity. Everyone worked with each other to evacuate as many people as they could. This changed America forever, but this also gave us a wake up call and a lesson.

Troop 12 Will Never Forget Our Heroes

This memorial day, we recognize those and their bravery to keep us safe. Not only we keep them safe in our prayers, but also through heart-warming cards and bracelets that let them know that we care!

Thank you to all the soldiers for keeping us safe and standing up for our freedom. It means a lot to us and is something that we will never take for granted. We especially appreciate those who died in service. We appreciate their selfless service for keeping us safe and free!

To support Operation Gratitude, Troop 12 has planned several activities for our scouts to support troops overseas. One of which is the quick-deploy survival bracelets. 

Operation Gratitude sends care Care Packages for Deployed Troops, First Responders, Veterans, Wounded Heroes & Caregivers, and Children of Deployed Troops. Our Troop will be writing handwritten letters to be sent along with these care packages. 

Troop 12 wants to let our troops know how grateful we are to have them, and will keep them in our prayers. To help support our troops, please participate in Operation Gratitude and the activities planned. They are very easy and fun to make (with the help of a "jig" which can be downloaded from their website), and will help benefit our soldiers!

Earth Day 2020

Today, April 22, 2020, is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Earth Day is a holiday that celebrates the Earth. We depend on the earth and its resources every day, so that means that we should be taking care of it as well.

But how can you?

You can start using reusable water bottles, pick up any trash you see outside, and don't harm wildlife. Remember, this earth isn't made just for humans.

You can also save water, too. Try using less water by limiting your shower time, and turning off the water when not in use.

Electricity is also an important factor in our daily lives. Turn off lights when not in use, and don't use it excessively!

Be grateful! Go and enjoy nature outside. Take a walk or go sight-seeing. There are many ways to enjoy nature.
