Troop Members

Welcome to our Troop!

Welcome and we hope you enjoy your time with scouting and our troop!

Weekly Troop Email: 349 uses a simple email distro list to keep in contact with it’s members, once you are a member you can sign-up for the regular weekly emails that act as both a reminder for troop events that week and contain specific information about the meetings and upcoming events. These emails are broadcast weekly on Mondays at 4:00 PM and can contain information necessary from any member of the troop regarding fundraisers, campouts, merit badge work, special opportunities, guest speakers…

Please see the Subscribe to Email Lists tab on the troop materials page to sign-up for it and any other distro lists the troop has for disseminating information.

 

Fundraisers: All Scouts are required to help raise funds for the troop to use to purchase equipment, fund events, and to take care of other various troop needs.

349 runs two fundraising events annually a holiday, and spring fundraising events.

Holiday: Metro Mistletoe Sales – Each holiday season 349 sells packs of mistletoe at the East and West Falls Church Metro stops for $5 a pack.

  • Each patrol sells a box
  • Each bag is wrapped with a small label to identify its origins and that it benefits troop 349
  • Each patrol will have access to sell their box at 3 venues: East FC Metro, West FC Metro, The Farmers market (talk with ASM Valley about this there are rules that must be followed)

If you can help with this effort please contact Steven Valley s_valley@troop349.us

Spring: Annual Mulch Sale and Fundraiser

  • 3 cubic foot bags of top quality double shredded mulch
  • 10 bag minimum order, 1 bag 2″ thick will cover a 3′ area, 1 bag 3″ thick will cover a 2′ area
  • Troop 349 is selling this mulch at well below retail!!

Donations: Troop 349 has been the recipient of several donations, equipment, money, and time from the community and companies. If your company has a program that will contribute to a non-profit organization like scouting please let Kathleen O’Connell know about it and she will work with you to get you all of the appropriate paperwork.
