Our winter Court of Honor was last week and it was led by Senior Patrol Leader Simon along with Lucas and Christian. Congratulations to all of you for both your accomplishments and for supporting each other. We only do these three times a year and it’s a special time to savor and encourage all our scouts to attend with parents, friends, and relatives. We follow a process by which a scout learns, is tested, is reviewed, and is recognized. A special shout out to those scouts earning the 3 Point Award (Points of the Scout Law): Wesley – Cheerful, Brandon - Brave, and Jonah - Trustworthy. These 3 Point Awards are nominated by the PLC, your fellow scouts. Past SPL recognition was also provided to Ben Spraque, whose term ended in January for his leadership to the troop. Good job scouts.
This year the Oustanding Order of the Fir (OOF) was given to several Scouters (adults): Mr. & Mrs. Spraque, Mr. Carter, Mrs. McLoud and Mr. Paulter (who was provided a model u-Haul truck) for all the outstanding help for the Christmas tree pickup which resulted in over $7400 being raised for the Troop. Mr.Anthony was presented with an interesting book about Mt. Washington in the 30’s and 40’s as a small gift of appreciation for his many hikes, ski trips, and support. Thank you.
The patrol leader council (PLC) meeting was also held last week and planning was conducted through the first of April. Good job.
Next week the Webelos will be attending our Troop and this is an opportunity to bring your boots in to be waterproofed in preparation for Mt. Washington.
Scouts – you asked to go to Mt. Washington and it’s a week away. 16 slots are available and only 4 scouts are signed up. Adults and scouts are encouraged to do one of the two trips. It’s a good challenge and we have equipment if you need it. Don’t be shy. The weather is warmer and there will be later sunsets with daylight savings kicking in. Sign up today and you can find additional information below.
