Request for Help for Local Scout Family

Posted on Jul 13 2014 - 2:24pm

Hello everyone,   

     I am writing to everyone to let you know of an opportunity to show our children how important and rewarding it is to help others in need. Empathy is one of the qualities that leads us to be great citizens. This is, after all, one of the main principles that the boy scout organization tries to teach our children.  Our children will ultimately learn this from watching our actions.

Note to Scouts from the Advancement Chair

Posted on Jul 13 2014 - 2:22pm

Hi Scouts - 

I just spent a good deal of time entering blue card information into my records, and it looks like Troop 143 had another fun and successful summer camp.  That also means, it is probably time to look at your individual goals in scouting.  Are you seeking out leaders to get those skill advancements signed off?  When was the last time you had your advancements recorded by Mrs. B?  If you think you are ready to advance, have you contacted Mr. English (remember you need to talk to him for a Scout Master conference before you ask for a board of review date).  If you have met with Mr. English, Yes, you need to ask Mrs. B. to schedule a board of review, this is not Mr. English's responsibility.
