Another good, informative and fun meeting this past Tuesday. Nice job again to the leaders, who met on Monday night (PLC) to conduct detailed planning. The Troop meeting consisted of learning about morse code, knife safety, and we listened to one of our Troop alum, Private Nick Higgins. Welcome back, Nick! Nick described his basic training and mechanics training with the National Guard and how he had an edge up over other candidates because of his scouting background. We also heard from scouts about their good deeds over the last week. This was a good exchange of kind acts.
Use your time wisely. At the Troop meeting, I showed a site called www.Windy.com. If you like weather, use this site. It’s used by mariners and pilots and is very comprehensive and world-wide. Another site that was interesting and brought up in Public Health was the John Hopkins COVID 19 site; https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html The amount of data science and analytics is interesting and powerful.
Congratulations to our newest Life Scout Christian Perrotta who passed his board of review last week.
Remember to go your good turn daily and keep up the good scouting. Be prepared to share your good deed on Tuesday.
