Hello Troop 737,

 

Monday night we will be meeting at Marshdale Park, which is next to Marshdale Elementary.  The plan is to play games on the fields so wear Class B uniforms (exception see below) and bring footballs, soccer balls, Frisbees, etcBring your own water.  Parents you might want to bring chairs if you are staying. 

 

We will be doing Scoutmaster Conferences and Boards of Review.  As always you will need to be in full uniform for a Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review so plan accordingly.  The Court of Honor is at the end of September and there are a lot scouts who have completed their requirements over the summer.  Please don’t put this off until the last minute.  I will be limiting the number of Scoutmaster Conferences that can be done in one meeting so don’t miss out.  There are already 4 scouts on the schedule. The best way to schedule Scoutmaster Conference is to send me an email.  NOTE: I will not be at tomorrow night’s meeting but Mr. O’Connor will be taking my place, including doing all the Scoutmaster Conferences.  If you email me I will forward your name on to Mr. O’Connor.

 

Parents, please come to the Parent Potluck Dinner on August 30th from 5 – 7pm at Evergreen Lutheran Church.  Learn about the upcoming Troop events and how you can help out.  Also get to know some of the other adults in the Troop.  REMINDER:  We ask that every family has at least one adult who does something for the Troop.  It takes a community to run a quality scout Troop.  Yes, scouts do like to go camping and learn outdoor skills but there are plenty of jobs that do not involve camping.
