SCOUTING FOR FOOD – Thank you to everyone who was able to participate! It was a huge success and I know there will be so many families in our community that are grateful for you this season!
PARENTS MEETING – TUESDAY DECEMBER 8, we will have a ZOOM Parents meeting to review how we did this fall, and talk about next year. Please plan to attend.
RECHARTER – THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE RESPONDED! I am encouraged and delighted that so many of you are staying with us while we hang on until we can meet in person again! Please LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS REGARDING HOW WE CAN IMPROVE AND SERVE YOUR SCOUTS DURING THIS TIME!
If you have not checked in with me yet, please do so. I will only renew the membership of scouts at the time if recharteing if I have been explicitly told your scout is continuing. You can rejoin after the new year, but that may require a new membership application. Dues are $120, and I would appreciate payment by November 25. This is because all scouts who recharter have to be paid for from the scout account, and it hurts out troop if we pay for scout who does not pay, or who has no intention of belonging for the coming year. Those intending to be registered adults, I need updated Youth Protection certificates as well. Thank you!
PLEASE let me know if you want your scout to continue, but need financial assistance. WE WANT EVERY SCOUT TO BE ABLE TO JOIN SCOUTING. It is available on a case by case basis.
Here is how to pay electronically:

MEETINGS – If you missed any of the Pinetree Meetings from this fall, you can view all the recordings on the Troop 313 YouTube Channel.
Jim Davis also has a YouTube Channel with other videos for Rank Advancement. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDRO9sW_DXRQbzdKBJBYZOg
IMPORTANT!!!!!! Attendance in the Zoom call does not mean they are checked off for that skill. Once your scout feels like they have mastered a skill, you will need to contact Mr. Davis to set up a phone call or Facetime call to demonstrate proficiency. He can check off completion in Scoutbook. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check the calendar for next weeks’ topics. PLease make sure that if they need rope or other equipment that they have it ready for the meeting. Zoom Link for these Classes will be in Scout Calendar
ALUMINUM CANS – I want to keep this Activity going. It provides a substantial amount of revenue for the troop which helps keep our dues low. I am hoping that a lot of you have been collecting cans since we stopped seeing each other in March. If you have cans that you’ve been collecting, bring them to my house (5226 S. Madelia) and leave them by the front door. I will get them to Bob.
