Our Next PLC Meeting will be held NEXT Monday, July 24th starting at 6:30PM. We need ALL Leaders to attend!!

Cedar Badge Leadership Training is coming up on September 29th – 30th. This will be held in Riverside. This is the first of three leadership course the BSA puts on for the Scouts to trach them leadership skills. Any Scout who has not been to Cedar Badge should considerer going. See your SPL for details.

Mrs. Navarro has taken over as our Script person. Script is a great way to help defray costs for Scouting activities (camps/campouts) and it costs you nothing to participate. It is very easy to do. We normally order Script around the first week of each month and have it to you by the next Troop meeting. Details on this easy fundraiser can be found at the Troop meeting. There is a packet available with information on how to participate. See Mr. McVeigh for any questions.

The Council is looking for individuals, families, and of course Scouts to assist in working on Camp Helendade this summer. This would be a Great Patrol project to assist the Council and gain service hours and give back! They would like to repair the camp from the fires a few years ago to try and open it back up. Opportunities to camp free are available if you help. Details can be found at the Troop meeting.

Mt. Rubidoux District is working to get a group of Scouts together to go to Philmont High Adventure Camp in July 2018. There are still a few spots open if you are interested. Details can be found at the Troop meeting.
Be sure to bring your Scout Books to the Troop meetings!  This is part of your uniform. We are working on Rank Advancements but you need your book in order to participate. All Scouts should be in Full Class “A” uniform with a Class “B” shirt under their Class “A” for activities and games. Please come properly dressed to the meetings!

Thank you,
Michael McVeigh

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country

To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
