Congratulations to our newest Eagle Scout JJ Moberly Chan who passed his Eagle Board of Review on 3/30/21 (during our Tuesday meeting). JJ provided good answers to many questions about his scouting career which included many Troop roles (including bugler, patrol leader, assistant patrol leader, and Senior Patrol Leader, and others) and he did a stint working at TL Storer. Congratulations again JJ!!
Thank you to Mr. Cancio (who recently scaled Mount Washington in March!). Mr. Cancio constructed an orienteering course in Fairyland for the scouts this past Tuesday. The past month the scout’s theme has been map/compass and orienteering. In past meetings, they had to orient and read maps, orient the compass, find direction, and determine their pace. There are a number rank advancement skills that the scouts worked on and some scouts are working towards orienteering merit badge. Saturday, April 17 is Scout-O and all this is good practice and skill-building.
We welcomed the Webelos parents to our Troop this past Wednesday. Thanks to Mr. McWilliams and all the other Scouters (adults) who helped describe our Troop. Mr. Carter explained summer camp and I think we all agree that this is a key event for Webelos and our Troop.
Remember, no Troop meeting this Tuesday. We will have a big Saturday (April 10) with breakfast, Scout House clean-up, new Webelos welcome, and a Bike Trip.
PLC Meeting Monday night April 5.
