The monthly newsletter of the Palmetto Council comes out on the first Friday of each month and is packed with information and opportunities for our troops and for our scouts. We suggest clicking on the link below to sign up to receive that email newsletter.
One such opportunity that was listed in this month’s newsletter is an upcoming Merit Badge opportunity for Weather or Chemistry merit badges just down Hwy 521 at USC-Lancaster. This is not a troop event, but one that scouts can sign up for and arrange transportation for themselves.
Troop 108’s Popcorn Salesmen Were Featured In This Issue!
Soon the temperatures will be cooling down and it will be perfect weather for a red Troop 108 hoodie. If you’ve been around the troop for any length of time then you’ve probably seen some of our scouts and leaders with them on. They are bright red and have the Troop logo screen printed across the back and a smaller version of the logo on the upper left chest.
These make great Christmas gifts!
They are available in sizes adult small through adult XL for $14 each. and in Size XXL for $15.50 (plus PayPal fee).
You can order until sometime on October 23rd when the ordering will automagically close. Note that orders will only be placed on October 24th for hoodies for which payment in full has been received.
The troops return to Fort Mill was delayed by a traffic accident ahead of them on the highway.
They are hoping to return safely at about 1:30 p.m.
Troop 108 will be spending a week at Camp Bob Hardin for our summer camp adventure in 2018. We will leave on June 24th and return on June 30th, 2018. Costs should be in the $300 range (including the traditional Troop 108 summer camp t-shirt).
More information as well as signups for merit badges will be coming along in the upcoming months, but we did want to give everyone a heads-up and also provide a way for parents to start making summer camp payments if they wish, by using the button in the right sidebar of this page.

With school in FMSD cancelled today due to weather concerns, we will follow our own “No School, No Scouts” rule.
Please stay home and stay safe. We will see you all next Monday night.
Due to weather concerns, the York District Activities Team as decided to postpone the planned Beach Sweep Event for this coming weekend. It may be planned for another weekend at a later time.
With 35 consecutive years of service to the beach community (along with lots of fun) they hated to not continue this year, but the main concern is for the safety of our scouting families.
This also keeps us out of the way of those who call the coastal areas home as they prepare their properties to weather the impending storm.
We will decided late in the weekend, depending upon weather conditions, whether we will be having a troop meeting on Monday night.
Those who have signed up to attend Beach Sweep need to know the following:
We will be meeting at Unity Presbyterian Church this Friday at 4:30PM and leaving out by 5PM.
Scouts should pack light (be sure to bring swimming trunks and a towel in addition to normal camping items).
Scouts need to set aside money for a fast food dinner on the way down and money for a fast food breakfast Sunday morning on the way home. Scouts can also bring money for the snack bar and arcade located in the campground.
We are sending a crack team of adults with years of tent-pitching experience to set up camp for us so our tents will be setup and ready for us when we arrive in the dark.
Hurricane Irma doesn’t appear to be a factor in our event this year except for possibly some rain on the way home. We will certainly keep an eye out on the storm this week and will adjust our plans accordingly.
