Safety Moment: Food Allergies
According to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), one in every 13 children has a food allergy. Every 3 minutes, a food-allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room. And while the responsibility for management of a food allergy lies with the individual or the individual’s parent or guardian, all of us need to be ready to assist in preventing — or helping in response to — a reaction.
As you know membership drives our movement. From den meetings in your hometown to filling tents at your favorite camp, membership is a pinnacle piece of our program. We are happy to report that for the third month in a row our Council posted membership growth! On top of that, we rank top 10% nationwide in membership growth percentage, unit growth percentage, and total units! We want to thank all of our Scouts, Scouters, and staff for all of their hard work in making it their mission to positively impact a growing number of youth within our program. We can’t wait to see what comes next! Share far and wide! Come and join a safe, fun, and robust program here in Connecticut. Let’s keep it going!

Trinity Solar Unit Fundraiser
Dear Troop/Unit Leaders-
As a way to raise funds and create a way for your scouts and families to understand the importance of renewable energy, we have set up a partnership with Trinity Solar.
If you are involved in any Earth Day activities or events in your community, consider having the scouts ask homeowners if they would like to learn more about how clean, renewable energy can help them save money while supporting the scouts.
By having a homeowner sit with a Trinity Solar pro to review their options, Council receives a contribution for $100. $50 will go to the troop/unit/pack that referred the homeowner.
If the homeowner is interested and decides to have a system installed, Council receives $1000 when the installation is complete. $500 of that is given to the troop that brought in the lead.
It is simple:
Scouts earn money
Council earns money
Homeowner saves money
Environment has a positive impact.
Attached is a sign-up sheet that can be used to collect names and addresses of homeowners that would like to talk to Trinity.
