Hello Scouts! This Troop Meeting we will hold elections for Patrol Leaders. Troop meetings will now have the following format:

  • Flag Ceremony
  • Announcements
  • Break up the Troop into Patrols where the Patrols will elect a Patrol leader, discuss their plans for the next meeting and discuss outdoor activities.
  • Closing Announcements.

To aid in the social distancing requirements and ensure all scouts excel, Patrols are going to be reogranized to the diagram below. Think about where you are and what group you will need to report to. See you Thrusday!

We will continue to meet in person for rank advancement, however this week we may or may not have a virtual meeting afterwards for a merit badge that is yet to be determined. This week New Scouts will be coming up with Patrol Names, Patrol Yells, and Patrol Songs, so start getting creative!
