Troop meeting - Saturday 1/30 at 12pm

posted Jan 28, 2021, 11:11 AM by Jim Stringer

For our upcoming troop meeting this Saturday, 1/30/21, we would like all scouts to make sure they bring their scout handbooks, blue cards or other progress of any merit badges they are working on. THIS IS NOT A TEST. This is intended to help the scouts and make sure the troop is doing everything possible given the circumstances to help them get things done. The past year has really altered our scouts' overall progress for many obvious reasons. We want to take some time to look at where each scout is and what their goals are so that they continue to progress in any way they want to, whether it is towards rank or specific merit badges.
