She will collect the items in a bin on her porch at 838 Cheshire. Please deliver your items to her house by December 5. The items will go up for sale (at very affordable prices!) on December 12 at the Chili Cook Off.

Class B T-Shirt Contest

Posted on Nov 21 2023 - 5:04pm

It's time to redesign Troop 842's Class B uniform shirts. We can't remember the last time we changed the Class B design, and it's time for a change. Submit your Troop 842 design by December 5 to Mrs. White (committeechair@troop842.com), and the troop and parents will vote for their favorite design! The winning design will be the inspiration for the new Class B uniform shirt. Designs can be mocked up by hand or on the computer. Remember to keep the design simple and 2 colors max! Less is more. Feel free to suggest a shirt color and style as well to coordinate with your design. Some information to keep in mind, but it's not mandatory, our mascot is an armadillo, and we've been a troop for 50 years - since 1973.
