Monday, June 25, 7:30 – 9 pm. Scout meeting @ church and Troop Committee Meeting / Board of Review

All interested adults are welcome to attend the monthly Troop Committee meeting, which handles the ‘behind the scenes’ part of the troop including trip planning, budgeting, coordinating training and fundraising, etc.

We will continue to focus on key themes from the parent meeting: shadowing and transitioning key adult leadership roles, preparing for girls in scouting, and preparing for ventures.

Board of Review is the essential final step for scouts who are advancing their rank.

Look ahead: Sign up for July’s White Water Rafting trip (28th-29th)!

For the second year in a row, we are looking for early sign-up to attend the rafting camp out in Ohiopyle. Last year, this was one of the highlights of the year! It is a great outing for parents to attend with their scouts and a Ton of Fun!
