Just a recap of last night’s meeting and some announcements:
Summer Camp – If you haven’t signed up for merit badges yet, let me know and I will enter you into the system.
Rank Advancement – Be sure to let me know if you have completed a requirement and need an older Scout to sign off. We have several Star and Life Scouts eager to work with you.
Service Hours – Our troop encourages our Scouts to look for ways to give back to our community. “Do a Good Turn Daily” because you are a Scout, not because you need to “check a box”. Scouts should contact me for approval before performing your service project.
Merit Badges – The Scouts that have participated in last week’s and this week’s meeting have completed requirements 1a, 1b, and 1c of the Cooking merit badge. Make sure you fill out a blue card and keep track of your progress. A lot of you are working on merit badges which is great. Make sure you keep a record, let us know which merit badges you are taking and send us a filled out blue card.
Clothing Drive – Ethan is running a clothing drive for his service project. Please consider donating what you can. Please contact him at the firstname.lastname@example.org
SPCA Drive –
Dear Troop 376,
As you know I am making dog chew toys for the SPCA of Westchester. Please donate any old t-shirts, flannel shirts, sweat shirts/pants, fleeces, or anything you may have that I can cut up and make into a chew toy for a dog. The larger sizes are better.
Please bring your donated items to Peter’s house located at __
