Kroger Card

Kroger's Community Rewards Program will donate a percentage of your in-store purchases to the charitable organization of your choice -- hopefully BSA Troop 800.  All you have to do to make this happen is link your Kroger Plus Shopper's Card to the Troop's account.  This costs you nothing.  Your spending is 100% confidential and this program DOES NOT affect your earnings toward fuel program discounts.

September 16-18, 2016 -- Camp Justis - Powhatan, VA | Capital Bike Trail - Henrico, VA

Bike Riding on the Capital Trail

This month's campout was originally scheduled to be whitewater rafting at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC.  However, after the unexpected death of a park visitor due to a brain-eating amoeba, the whitewater portion of the park was closed back in June.  Out of an abudnance of caution, we decided to scrap those plans altogether and go with a backup.
