Kick off meeting for 2018-2019

Tuesday, September 4

Welcome back to another year of Scouting.



Attached are many of the documents/info for Tuesday night’s troop program kick off meeting.  All Troop families should have a parent in attendance with their son.


Troop Assistance.  I have attached a list of the roles of the various Troop Committees as well as Assistant Scoutmasters.  We need every family to commit to assisting the Troop in some way.  I need a couple of folks to step up as Assistant Scoutmasters to help at Troop Meetings, as well as members on most of the Committees listed in the document.  We can also use more Merit Badge Counselors to work with the Scouts at meetings.  Many of the active parents have sons who are juniors or seniors in High School – or whose son graduated from the Troop.  We also need more parents on many of the trips.  We need the next generation of parents to get involved to keep the Troop program and activities at the quality & level that they are.

BSA Medical Form – I Do Not Need another copy if you went to Resolute with the Troop or to Phil-Not or Mexico.  I have them.  Everyone else I need an updated health form – does NOT need to be signed by the doctor.
