Congratulations to Kevin O’Neil who passed his Eagle Board of Review on Thursday 10/15/2020. The board is conducted by the District Advancement Chair and I (Scout Master) introduce and sit in on the board. Kevin did a nice job answering some interesting questions about his scouting and what it means to be an Eagle. Here’s something for all the scouts. What do you think it means to be an Eagle Scout?
We met virtually last week and had a chance to connect. The Troop Committee also met to discuss and plan to support the Troop’s activities. Next week our plan is to meet virtually starting at 6 pm. I will also host the wrap-up for Family Life which will start at 7 PM using the same zoom meeting.
Lucien will be planning to cover some topics of importance to us all, including stove types and lighting to lashings. These are two specific areas we can use some help on. All scouts will benefit.
Here are the details for the troop and family life wrap up:
We will go back to Meetings Outside: Tuesday, October 27, 2020 we will meet in person at Emerson Field at 5 pm. Sunset is early and then we set the clocks back in November. We will announce our plan next week as to how we plan to meet. The challenge will be making the most of daylight or not, perhaps some night hiking or some sort of meeting outside.
During these times we need to innovate and be flexible to make our meetings challenging, scout based, and fun. Let’s continue to try new things. If any adults have any creative ideas (tour your work location, you have a cool topic to share, you have neat skills to demonstrate and share, and etc.) to share, please email Mr. Duggan with your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do your good turn daily. There are always opportunities you just have to look for them and think of others.
