Our on-line meetings continue to be informative and focused on scout related skills that benefit the entire Troop. This week we learned more about signals and codes as well as one knot we should know, called the taut-line hitch. Two Troop merit badges, Public Health and Family life are in progress. Each week I am really pleased by how skilled and mature the scouts are organizing and running the meetings. You are learning life lessons and adapting with enthusiasm. Keep up the good work.
Virtual Boards of review are happening. Our congratulations to our newest Life Scout, Christian Perrotta.
Some scouts attended the district Life to Eagle seminar. While this focuses on the process and steps, I just want to remind scouts that thinking about a project that you would like to do with the beneficiary (someone who needs it) can never start too early. This is an opportunity to do something on your own, that you would like to do and feel proud for years to come, but it takes time. Often what you think you want to do will change and that has to be in sync with the beneficiary. Some of our alumni scouts who come back can describe the ebb and flow of early planning. If you have an idea, share it with your parents, Mr. Rzepczynski, or me to get some feedback.
This week, be prepared to talk about your good deeds. Let’s see; with about 30 scouts times 7 days that’s 210 good deeds in a week. Let’s hear about some of them.
