Hello scouts and parents,
This week is the second week of Patrol Month! During Patrol Month, there will be patrol competitions with points for attendance, wearing your uniform, doing service, and completing scouting skills challenges. This week’s challenge is citizenship. Here is the flyer with the information about Patrol Month: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yjrLC8P7PkEiB6UVMEy6LZt_rfiGihEv_ndrU8LlJqA/edit?usp=sharing. It also has the patrol assignments if you don’t remember which patrol you are in.
Our next few upcoming things:
— On April 22 there is the Good Turn for Ecology Day (aka Earth Day Trash Pick up in Cherry Creek Res) from 7:30 am to Noon. It’s a great chance to get conservation service hours and help clean up our state park. Please sign up here (they want us to register participants in advance) https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0E4AAAAD22AA8-good.
— On April 29 at 9:00 am there is a Lions Club Convention Flag Ceremony, we need scouts to perform the morning flag ceremony. Please let Mr. Wilcox know if you are interested in helping.
