posted Nov 14, 2012, 5:40 AM by Dan Harasty   [ updated Nov 14, 2012, 5:44 AM ]
  • Phone list needed
    • We'd like to set up a Troop-wide "telephone phone tree"
    • This will be for emergencies, and for last-minute reminders.  Mobile numbers preferred.
    • Dan H. to set up a web form to allow Troop members to self-report their numbers
    • To test the phone list: SPL picks occassional meetings to be "Class Bs".  This shows who got the message.
    • TBD: who will set up the actual phone tree
    • TBD: if we'll integrate this with permanent Troop records
    • TBD: how we'll make this available to everyone
  • Scout service projects
    • The scouts did great at Belmar clean-ups
    • There may be more to do: plan on another one this Saturday ~10am -- ~2pm
    • Meet at church before hand, and pick up downed branches
  • "Scout Closet" now open
    • We have certain uniform items available for the asking for those who could use the assistance
    • To see a list of items, go to Scout Closet
  • T-shirts
    • Red T-shirts available
    • The Committee asked Ally to check in to the cost of sweatshirts -- perhaps red w/ Class B stenciling
  • Fundraising:
    • Cookie dough sales: waiting on 6 more orders
    • Popcorn: to be picked up soon
    • Wreath sale: underway.
      • Troop to turn in orders by 11/29 (Court of Honor) -- delivery by ~12/9
      • Troop to ask church if we can announce sale in their bulletin
        • Sue to update order sheet for attachment to bulletin this week
        • Scouts would need to be present on Sunday 11/25 to take orders
        • Sue will see if that order can be placed on 11/26, for delivery on 12/2
    • Candy bars: probably to start in January
    • Incentives: ideas to get more boys participating:
      • Certain sales can fund specific things: eg: "sell two boxes of candy bars; earn a Troop sweat shirt"
      • More group incentives: recognize/reward patrols with most participation, or most sales
  • Uniforms
    • The Committee requests that the scouts endeavor to have uniforms updated with patches and rank by January meeting
  • Caroling
    • Date TBD
    • Dan to reach out to nearby Packs and invite Webelo II's to join us
