Christmas party and white elephant gift exchange-

Our ever popular wrapped $5 white elephant gift exchange will be held Dec. 11th.  For anyone unfamiliar with the term white elephant gift, it’s something goofy, it’s something different, it’s something no one would expect a teenage boy to open for Christmas, ha ha.  But whatever it is, it can’t cost more than $5.  And it’s important that you wrap the gift prior to coming to the meeting (otherwise the fun of the surprise is missing) and parents, you are more than welcome to come watch the exchange.  Also, each scout, please bring a snack to share.  Sure to be a festive and fun time!

Rank Advancement Scoutmaster Conference & BOR

Rank Advancement Scoutmaster Conference and Boards of Review scheduling prior to next Court of Honor-

We normally hold Boards of Review at our Committee meetings once a month, but because we take December off, we do not have another Committee meeting before the Jan. 22 Court of Honor.  So if your scout is ready to complete his next Rank, he needs to contact Mr. Andrews prior to a Troop meeting to schedule his Scoutmasters Conference.  As soon as he completes his SM Conf, he needs to contacts Mrs. Stephens ASAP to schedule his Board of Review prior to the next Court of Honor.  Your scout can not just show up at a meeting and expect to get either of these done that night as we only have 3 meetings prior to the Court of Honor.  Please keep this in mind.

PLC Meetings attendance mandatory for Troop leadership

Please note that if your scout holds a leadership position with the Troop, it is his responsibility to attend all PLC meetings the last Monday of each month while he holds the position.  His leadership position is part of his rank advancement, and if he is unable to fulfill the responsibilities of the job, he will be removed from the position.  Please note that Troop elections are coming up December 11th.
