Special Announcements


  • Welcome back to another great year of scouting with Troop 62! - Our first meeting for the new year will be Thursday, August 27, from 7:15 pm to 9:00 pm, at Nevers Road Pavilion. The remaining September meetings will be at St. Margaret Mary's Church.

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE #1 - Troop Meeting Place. As you all know, St Peters had a fire in the basement of the Church Hall on August 1st. Work is underway to make the repairs but the troop will need to look elsewhere for their weekly meetings for awhile. For this Thursday (August 27th), we will be meeting at the Nevers Rd Park Pavilion - and then at St. Margaret Mary's the following three weeks (September 3rd, 10th and 17th). There is no meeting on the 24th as that is a camping weekend. We will inform you as to the meeting place in October soon.

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE #2 - Registration Cost. The Connecticut Rivers Council BSA has approved a $23 Fee increase for the upcoming year. Included in the price increase is a new Program Fee of $19 plus an Insurance Fee increase of $4 per scout. The new program fee will be used to support the council's operations - both office in East Hartford and its several camps in Connecticut - as well as provide training and support to the unit leaders of the Connecticut Rivers Council (CRC). Due to this increase, Troop 62 will be forced to increase the annual registration fee from $70 to $90 which is payable in September, 2015. On a positive note, the CRC will no longer be conducting the Family Friends of Scouting campaigns which have been held during the Spring Court of Honors evening.


  • Next PLC: Thursday, August 20 at 6pm - Wylie House

    Next Trip: 9/25-9/27 - September Camping at Doc's Property in Stafford, CT
