Scoutmaster message of January 16, 2017

Reminder Troop Announcements from last week below.

THIS Saturday, January 21st we will be having a Scout House cleanup focusing especially on knocking down the weeds that are growing with all the rain we have received. We need EVERYONE to show up and lend a hand! We will take whatever time you can give. We especially need you to bring lawnmowers and weed trimmers to help with knocking the weeds down. We will start the cleanup at 8:00AM. This will ONLY get cancelled if it is raining! Currently the weather forecast shows it cloudy but no rain.

We will be returning to our normal meetings on Monday, January 23rd .  We will be having our Troop Elections at the January 23rd  meeting so if you are interested in having ANY Leadership role (SPL, ASPL, PL, APL) please plan to attend.

We will be conducting a Mandatory Leadership Training session on January 27th – 28th  to give the new leaders tools and ideas to help be better leaders. All leader  need to attend this weekend training. This will be an overnighter and will be held on the Church grounds. More details will be given.

Our next Court of Honor will be held on Monday, January 30th. Please work on finishing up your Merit Badges and see your SPL and Mr. McVeigh about any items you need to get your next rank. WE will be conduction another Rank Advancement breakout at the January 23rd meeting so please remember to bring your Scout books.

Please sign up for the upcoming campouts. We need to have you signed up and paid at least Two Weeks before the campout in order to properly have time to put them together.

February 18th – 20th – Death Valley
March 17th – 19th – Camp Pendleton Campout

Scout Sunday has been tentatively set for Sunday, February 12th. We need All Scouts and Scout Leader sot attend FUMCORS 10:00AM service to show our thanks and support for them. This will  last about one hour.

The Troop has voted to go to Camp Cherry Valley for Summer 2017. This camp is a n awesome camp but is also one of the most expensive around $600.00 to go for the week. We have a signup sheet  and ask if you plan to go PLEASE sign up and start payments to Mr. Grace. We need to send a deposit of $100.00 to them for each person going by the end of January so we need commitments and monies from everyone over the next few weeks or we will need to make other plans and postpone Camp Cherry Valley to 2018.

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
