Dear Troop Families,

    • Scouts - Please review your merit badge selections on the troop website here. If any changes are required, please contact Mr. Fordham and Mr. Swami as soon as possible.

  • Calico Ghost Town Campout

    • Thanks to Mrs. Kennemer for all the planning for this fun campout. Hopefully, we will get enough adult drivers to transport all scouts to camp. The weather forecast calls for dry and warm weather. Scouts should always “Be Prepared” for all weather conditions. Please remind all scouts to carry refillable water bottles and plenty of sunscreen.

    • Please review the event page for the Spring 2022 Eagle Court Of Honor here. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, May 31st 2022. This is a great opportunity for scouts to be part of the ECOH to present Scouts BSA’s highest honor of Eagle Scout to 4 of our youth leaders (including 3 SPLs!).

  • Senior Patrol Leader Elections

    • I am pleased to announce that Steven L. will be the Senior Patrol Leader for the term of July 2022- December 2022. Big Thanks to all other scouts who ran for this position and delivered some great speeches at the meeting on 17th May. 

    • Scouts - If you want a leadership position in the Patrol Leaders Council for the next term, please contact Steven by email and copy Mr. Stewart and I. Mr. Stewart has graciously offered to keep track of youth leadership contracts for the next term too. 

    • Youth Leadership Positions details are available on the troop website, please review those for the requirements of specific positions.
