Senior Leadership continues to deliver great meetings. Well done scouts. We took a tour of Bryce Canyon, got an update on the Order of the Arrow, learned to tie a taut-line hitch. Family Life and Public Health merit badges continue each week and we are continuing with virtual boards of review for scouts.
This weekend is National Camp-In Weekend: “Saturday is The weekend is scheduled to include virtual fun such as skill-building, community service, and camping from your own back yard or living room. The fun-filled digital event is meant to restore a sense of fun and adventure for families and even for families whose children are not currently in scouting. You can find out more by visiting the website. Please check out the agenda for Saturday, it looks like a fun day.
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 about for years to come. But it takes time and you can't start too early. Often what you think you want to do will change and that has to be in sync with the beneficiary. Some of our Alum 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.
I am looking forward to hearing more about your good deeds, which we share at each meeting.
Keep up the good scouting and use your time wisely. It is a gift.
