Since we have so many boys traveling over the next few weeks, Troop 67 will observer a summer break and postpone troop meetings until August 11, 2014. We will will have a Troop Committee and Parent planning meeting on August 4th, 2014 in the Scout Room at the church to work on our 2014-2015 activities calendar. Scout parents and Troop committee members are encouraged to attend.
Five members of Troop 67 (Monticello, AR) are traveling with the DeSoto Area Council's 2014 Philmont Scout Ranch contingent. They arrived at Base Camp on Sunday, July 13th and after training will begin their trek Monday afternoon, July 14th. They will be hiking more than 74 miles and spending 10 nights on Philmont's backcountry trails. Philmont Boy Scout Ranch celebrated its one-millionth back county visiter on July 11th, 2014.
