Storage Shed Ransacked!
Sadly, our shed had recently been hit by burglars who made off with several thousand dollars of camping equipment, including all our brand new tents. Both the Frontiersman and Channel 11 did great stories on us.

We've set up a GoFundMe account to try to recoup some of the cost of replacing our gear. Scoutmaster Jeff Krzpkowski, however, put a positive view on it as he shared how fortunate we are to have such a great troop, still have plenty of resources, and lots of community support that will help us rebuild. It goes to show that when we put our time and energy into our community, in times of need, our community will give right back. Go to the GoFundMe.com page to help us rebuild.
Items needing replacing:
1 large Camp Chef 2-burner stove
1 Green Coleman stove (for setting on a table)
1 small Coleman hiking stove
2 new large tents for adults REI Kingdom
1 Pop up shelter - green
