Notices from Committee:
  • Note from Mr Lines, Advancement Coordinator:
    • Excerpt:
I ask going forward parents have their scout contact me with issues and requests regarding badges and advancement.  I know it’s often simpler to make the call or send the email yourself but what we are trying to do is build the boys.  This gives the boys an opportunity to interact with an adult and be responsible for their own advancement.
