Troop Merit Badge College - May 25th & June 1st

Posted on May 21 2019 - 7:30pm

 

 

 

 

Scouts,

Summertime is a great time to earn your Eagle-Required merit badges. Personal Fitness, Personal Management, and Family Life lend themselves well to complete over the break!

The troop has arranged for rooms at White's Chapel on May 25th and Saturday, June 1st for morning and afternoon sessions and will arrange for merit badge counselors for the most requested badges. These classes will help you kick off your badges so you can do the requirements at your own pace.

Please email Mrs Belleville IMMEDIATELY the dates you are available and the badge you would like to work on.

Our annual merit badge college is scheduled for August 17th with more details to follow.

Watch the website for an official schedule & signup soon!

Merit Badge Counselors, if you are available & willing to help with this kick off, please email Mrs Belleville your availability.
Thank you,
Ruth Belleville

A “Thank You” from the Committee Chair

Posted on May 21 2019 - 11:46am
 
As I pass the baton to my successor I wanted to take this opportunity to express my overwhelming appreciation for a great group of volunteers.  Over the two years in the Committee Chair position I saw the “thousands of hours” of volunteerism donated by adults to make this Mission thrive. 

For the people directly on the committee – thank you.  Thank you for selfless dedication to all the paperwork, and emails, and phone calls, and... , and... , and….   You never stopped working for something bigger!

For the scoutmasters, thank you for wearing the brown shirt and getting out there with the boys.  For being silly when you can and serious when you have to.  Your efforts to raise great young men matters!

And for the parents that give their time in other ways, we truly appreciate the food shopping, the patch sewing, and the gentle nudge to keep your son on track.   I know it was YOU that brought your son to scouting - and while your son may not know that gift, I do!

I know I do not have to ask, but I will, please give your support to Kristi Dyer.  She will be a wonderful Committee Chair with your help.

God bless,

Paige Kester

Jack’s Dad

 

P.S.  For the boys, past and present, thank you for the times you really tried to live “I will do my best”.  For the times you found BE PREPARED actually was a good motto to follow.  When you joined, you hoped scouting was a chance to be with your friends, do cool stuff, and “if I learn something and hang out with my dad that will be OK”.  However, keep this thought with you until the day you can fully appreciate: your parents brought you to scouting to be exposed to great life principles, to be surrounded by families who wanted the same for their child, to have you grow up to be great men, and yes, to spend time with you.  …if they had to pair it with you “hanging out with your friends and doing cool stuff”, well, that was OK too!

If you are an adult who missed renewing during last year's recharter and would still like to attend summer camp or one of the treks, or be otherwise official with the troop,  we can still help if you act fast. Please note: your form may not be able to be processed in time if the various signatures of the personnel needed to validate it have left town for summer. Do Not Procrastinate.

Council requires a valid YPT to accompany your BSA form to process.  Please ensure your BSA form is filled out completely including background check authorization. Incomplete applications missing last years deadline require a new form. If this pertains to you, you have been personally notified.

WOOD BADGE COURSE June 18‐22, 2019

Posted on May 4 2019 - 10:41pm

This course is for adult leaders.

Back by demand is a Wood Badge Course many of you can take! Only one week-long – not the usual two weekends split apart. This course starts on Tuesday and ends on Saturday; perfect for those who can only take off work one week at a time. Click here for the Course Flyer.  This provides the information you need to register.

This is not a Troop leader training but is designed for Cub, Scout, and Venturing leaders. This course will help you better understand how all the Scouting programs tie together. It will provide you with many useful leadership tools to help enable our youth to have the best possible Scouting experience. There is no better time to attend a Wood Badge course and make a difference in your unit than when you are a Cub Scout Leader.
