Reminder, next week is our Spring Court of Honor. Please invite your family and friends to attend.
Thank you, Scouts, families, and friends. 1344 pounds of food in over 100 bags were delivered to Open Table. Well done!
Week in Scouting Recap
Troop elections were held this week. First, congratulations to all who ran. A scout is brave. It is not easy putting yourself out there and many of you did this, which takes courage. Keep it up. While not everyone may have been elected to the role that the wanted, there will be more opportunities coming in the fall. Please do your part to help all the new leaders with their positions. We all need to help each other. Here are the results:
PLC Meeting planned for Monday. Former PL’s and scouts invited. As part of your transition, we will have a self-evaluation form to be completed.
Troop 132 Food Drove. Remember, tomorrow is pick up and consolidation day. Just to be clear, track who you left the flyers with. Be ready to pick up tomorrow, 6/13/2020 from 9-10 AM. Then you have to arrange with your patrol leader, Cameron, Ben, and Lincoln, to collect your collection. The PL will consolidate the food for delivery to Open Table Maynard on Tuesday. This helps Open Table by having fewer drop off’s and helps our community at large.
Week in Scouting Recap
Another excellent meeting this past Tuesday. Memorial Day presentation by Lucas, Knot Kahoot by Ben, and JJ presented on how our Troop works – elected and appointed positions. Each scout who holds a position of responsibility described what they do for the benefit of the entire Troop.
Congratulations to Charlie Stone for earning First Class!
Scavenger Hunt was a big success. Great job Lincoln for doing this and all those who took part. Five Guy Gift Certificates valued at $10 were awarded to Grady, Ben, Lincoln, and Lucien.
Remember 6/23 is our virtual court of honor. Please make sure you review the award preview attachment that was provided at the beginning of this email.
Blue Cards and other items need Sign Off
I have an old milk box (back in the days with milkmen) on my front steps so that we can exchange blue cards and other signatures. This will keep my mailman happy because he didn’t like seeing blue cards in the mailbox. So if you need to drop off anything, please use this box and I’ll sign as needed. Also, email or text me (remember to copy another adult).
PLC on Monday and we need to plan for the summer. Coming up we have elections and re-appointments for positions. So run for SPL, PL, and express your interest in new challenges. Reading merit badge continues.
The Troop is moving ahead and good scouting is being done. You should all be proud.
Aloha, That was a great tour of the USS Missouri. The highlight of the week in fact. Looking across Pearl Harbor and what a wonderful site. Full of history. I hope you all enjoyed it. I mentioned my mother's first cousin, Robert Mansfield, who is a Concord native and he attended Concord High School (now Emerson Umbrella). He died during the war in Guam. He is buried in the National Cemetary called the 'punch bowl' in Hawaii.
My father quit high school and gave up half of his senior year and joined the Navy to serve in WWII. Not unlike this class of 2020, who doesn't have their graduation. Instead of graduation, he was shipped out to Pearl Harbor. So there are a lot of Concord connections. Maybe we should plan a trip and stay on the Missouri?
Don't forget to do the Lincoln/Troop 132 Scavenger hunt! Bring your family and friends and stay socially distant. Enter to win and no matter how many you did we will have a drawing.
This summer will be interesting and we will rise to the challenge. I can’t say enough words of praise to the entire Troop. I’m proud that you are working on scouting and weaving scouting and the Scout Oath and Scout Law into your daily life.
We are kicking off a food drive. Good work scouts.
