I trust we all had a nice Thanksgiving spending time with our loved ones and reflecting on how lucky we are. I know I did.
The Holiday parade is this Friday, December 2nd. Scouts will meet at 6:00 at the old South Street School. The parade starts at 6:30. Even if you "forgot" to sign up just let Mr Roby know you will be there. There will be hot cocoa and home made cookies in the Fellowship Room of the Church after the Parade. Right now the weather is looking seasonable with temps in the low to mid 30s and only a 20% chance of rain. Keep an eye on the weather though because it is always changing.
This Monday will be a PLC meeting at 6:00. If you are a patrol leader or assistant patrol leader you should plan to attend.
Congratulations to Andrew R. and Vincent S. who were our troop's top popcorn sellers this year! Way to go!!
Popcorn prizes will be in within the next couple of weeks.
Special Thank You to Mr. Sanders who has been our Popcorn Kernel for the past several years. This was his last year helping us out with Popcorn and he will be handing the reigns over to someone new next year (we are needing someone to volunteer please). In addition to being in charge of popcorn Mr. Sanders has supported the troop in many other ways. He served time as an Assistant Scoutmaster, has attended many camp outs and has even spent entire weeks at summer camp. He has said on many occasions that he enjoys seeing the effects of Scouting on our boys and how much they grow and mature while being in the Troop. He has been an asset to the Troop and will be missed.
All Scouts will be using the new advancement requirements after Jan. 1. You can find the new requirements here: www.scouting.org/filestore/boyscouts/pdf/524-012_BS_Requirements.pdf
More information on the advancement change will be announced in the next couple of weeks.
There is a new handbook available here http://www.scoutstuff.org/bsa/literature-media/handbooks/handbook-bs-13-ed-pb-rs.html#.WD2j3Wq7qUk
If you would rather I would be happy to pick one up for you at the Scout Store, just let me know. It would make a great stocking stuffer :-)
Congratulations to Kentaro T. who successfully completed his Board of Review for Second Class !!
