On Tuesday, Feb 6, we will work in patrols and finalize gear for the 9-11Feb ski trip.
This will be my first meeting as your president and I’d like you all to come in uniform with your scout books. I have asked Patrol leaders Harrison and Kavita to lead us in saying the pledge of allegiance and the scout oath. I will lead us in saying the scout law.
All parents and adult volunteers are invited to the monthly committee meeting tomorrow 30 Jan at 7pm during the youth business meeting. Please email me any agenda items you would like to include in addition to the ones listed at the end of the email.
This week we will have a pack check, so everyone who is going, bring your bags. We will be distributing AMC gear too, so be ready. Ms. Holmes also wants to finalize plans for the wilderness first aid trip, so people going there need to get ready too.
Tomorrow we will be splitting the group into two patrols, then sam will lead those going on the trip in preparing for a pack check and meals. If we have time wr will let the patrols come up with a name, call, and flag.
As we’ve discussed at a couple previous meetings, our unit is getting ready to take on a high adventure trip this summer! A small group of us will spend a week canoeing in the Maine wilderness with experienced guides on 7-13 July (please note the date change), and we still have a few open spots left for this opportunity!
All registered youth who are 13 years of age before 1 Sep 2018 are eligible. Please read the attached document and feel free to email me if you have any additional questions.
So far, we have going:
Adults: Andrés and Jeni
Youth: Harrison, Dante, Roberto, Daniel Ballesteros
We have spots available for a few more youth, but we need a signed contract (attached) and the first round of payments* by February 1st to guarantee your spot!
*Note that we are applying to the trust for funding, so we should be able to reimburse a large portion of the costs for this trip, pending their approval.
The following Scouts each worked a 2 hour shift at St. James’s Helping Hands Food Pantry yesterday:
Kevin, Henry, Harrison, Lixing, Hima, & Gray
These Scouts sorted and distributed food, and assisted with bags and carts for 50 families. The uniformed Scouts made a big and positive impression on the guests who gave them loud applause. They were also given kudos at today’s church service.
These Scouts exemplified the Scout Laws of Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, and Kind.
