Scoutmaster message of September 18, 2017:

Please sign up for the upcoming Events / 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.

October 14th – Deep Sea Fishing Trip
November 10th – 12th – Afton Canyon Campout

Our next Court of Honor will be held Next Monday, September 25th.  If your Last name begins with A-M please bring a Side Dish to serve 8-10 people. If your Last name begins with N-Z please bring a Main dish to share with 8-10 people.

Popcorn Sales have begun. We have the order forms and flyers at the Scout House. This is a Great way to fundraise for your Scouting expenses. All orders and money need to be turned in at the October 9th Troop meeting. You will receive your popcorn to deliver around November 4th. You can also order on-line for any family or friends that are out of the area but still want to support your fundraising! All details are in the handout.

Our Host – First United Methodist Church of Riverside (FUMCOR) is hosting a Ministry Fair on Saturday, September 30th. This is to show the community of Riverside all of their programs which includes Boy Scouts. They will have a table for us and want Scouts to be there in Full Class “A” to talk to those who may be interested in the Scouting program. This is a great outreach to the community and us supporting the Church who has given us so much! We have a signup sheet for you to sign up for this event. This will run from about 9:00AM – 1:00PM.

We are planning an Open House in November. Time to be determined, but likely in the afternoon. In addition to showing off what our Troop has to offer, we have invited the Tribe of Tahquitz to perform a full Native Indian dance exhibition. Please make plans to participate - we need All Scouts and Parents to help with making this recruiting opportunity a huge success!

We are looking into having someone visit the Troop and give some Leadership Training to our Parents (Adults). We need more adult leadership to assist with the program. See Mr. Grimes or Mrs. Sovine if you are interested so we can schedule this with the District.

As we look ahead we will be started Re-Charting by next month in order to have it turned in by the November deadline. I have been informed that in order for ANY Adult leader to be registered you need to have a current Youth Protection certificate in place.  Youth Protection is now going to be managed by the National headquarters rather than the local Councils. This certification  will now be required Annually so please go online and get your Youth Protection completed so we do not have any delays! WE are recommending that everyone take the Youth Protection Training in the next month so that every year the YPT training will line up with re-charting time. This will make it easy on everyone.

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

Be conservation minded.
