TROOP DUES – Thank you to those who have already paid! I appreciate it! Our Charter and all Troop Dues for the year 2020 are due in December. You should have received an email from me last weekend with the balance for your son(s).
NOVEMBER MEETING PROGRAM – We will be doing elements of the public speaking merit badge during the meetings this month. If your son wants to actually complete the badge, have them talk to me (Christell) as there is a larger component we cannot complete during group meeting time. The last part of this program will be next week when we will hold a meeting and learn/practice parliamentary procedure! FUN!
LEADERSHIP ELECTIONS – We will be electing new scout leadership at the meeting on December 10. If you son wants to run for Senior Patrol Leader, please have him see Mr. Mick. Other leadership positions are also available that satisfy rank advancement requirements. Current leaders will complete their 6-month tenure in December. Leaders elected in December will retain that position for 6 months, until June 2020.
STEM – The second STEM is this Saturday, November 16 AT EWU.
WEBELOS SKILLS DAY- This is a mandatory event that we put on each year to introduce local cub scout packs to us, and to basic scout skills. This year it will be December 7 from 9-12PM at the Hamblen Park Shelter. More details to come.
GIRLS TROOP – There has been some interest in starting a girl’s troop here at 313. Some adults here have been working behind the scenes to find out what needs to be done to get one up and running. Right now, we are trying to assess the interest, and find out if we have enough girls to feasibly get things going. Message me or come talk to me at a meeting if you have a daughter who might be interested, or if you know of a friend or family member who might be. An informational meeting is being planned and we want to get the word out.
