Two weeks in a row we got rained out. Last week we thought it would clear and anxious to deliver on the patrol cup ice cream treat but the weather had other plans. Going forward we will make the weather call earlier in the day and get the word out so people can make plans.
This weekend, I’m traveling with my son Will to the Oshkosh Air Show and then staying in Chicago for the week for business. At the airport I glanced and say a book titled “How To Lead When You are Not in Charge” and thought, all our scouts know that. But I bet adults need reminders.
Every scout can show leadership in four (4) ways; Self-Leadership, Cooperative, Supportive and Directive.
Mr. Hillman has offered to help the troop with ice cream next week and we will stick to the same format. Meet at Emerson, hike over to Bedford Farms and back for pickup. Always check in and check out with your senior leaders.
Summer is a great time to continue working on advancements. Bring your book to summer meetings and get signed off.
Do your good turn daily. It does not have to be big. Start with small things like opening the door for someone or picking up trash. It’s easy but you have to do it and you always feel good when to do your good turn daily.
