Dean Maxwell Eagle Project - Sensei Gary Diven Memorial Rock Garden

Posted on Feb 20 2017 - 2:56pm

Dear Fellow Troop 190 Members and Alumni,

Along with being a Boy Scout, I am a senior brown belt at the Dillsburg Karate Academy located at 220 South Second Street in Dillsburg.  I am working on my Eagle Scout project, which is planned to be a memorial rock garden to honor Sensei Gary Diven, a founder of the Dillsburg Karate Academy and an active member of the Dillsburg community prior to his death.  I am planning to build this rock garden this coming April and May in front of the building housing the Karate Academy on Second Street.

Scout Credits

Posted on Jan 9 2017 - 9:04pm

If your son participated in any of our fundraisers or you requested a credit instead of receiving reimbursement for expenses, you have scout credits.  The troop keeps track of scout credits and applies them to offset the cost of scouting events your son attends such as campouts.  If you would like to know your scout credit balance, please contact our treasurer, Mireya Carlsen, at mscarlsen@verizon.net.

New Rank Requirements

Posted on Dec 31 2016 - 11:12am

The new rank requirements are now mandatory for all ranks.  Boys do not have to redo requirements already completed for rank advancement.  They will be transferred to the corresponding new requirement.  However there will be additional requirements to complete for each rank.  Boys who joined scouts after December 2015 are already using the new requirements and have the new book.   If you do not wish to purchase a new book, you can print the attached document double-sided.  It will create a booklet that can be kept in the back of your son's scout book.
