Welcome !

Welcome to Troop 44's web site designed to make communication faster and easier for our families. Monthly newsletters, calendars and permission slips are all published here along with a lot of other useful information. Weekly meeting plans are sent to every Scout via email and also posted here.
Troop 44 has been chartered to St. Paul Presbyterian Church for 43 years and we meet weekly on Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the church. We currently have between 40 and 50 registered Scouts and about the same number of adults participating as leaders or committee members.
The site is protected for the benefit of our Scouts. Please use the 'contact us' function if you need more information.

The Kwahadi Indian Dancers will be visiting Johnston on July 30, 2016, and will be giving a free show at 11:00 AM at St Paul.
We need more help on Friday evening setting up chairs in the gym at 7:00 PM and could use help on Saturday cleaning up and putting those same chairs away. The sign-up sheet is attached but we will accept all the help we can get.

First of all, a really big THANK YOU to Frank B. now 18, and ready to move to Iowa City, who cleaned out his closet to donate Scout pants, shorts, shirts, belts and socks to the closet. While mostly on the smaller side, there are a variety of all the aforementioned if anyone is in need? The five pairs of boots he donated went home with Scouts last evening.

Today (July 8) was cement pouring day, thanks to the help of Mr. O. Not without it's difficulties, the estimate on the cement needed was a bit short! Still, finished and now left to dry for six days before the hardware can be installed.
