Hello Troop 737,
How about those BRONCOS!!
Based on the forecast please look at your email before heading to the meeting tomorrow night. I will send out an email by 5:30pm.
This Monday is the PLC (Patrol Leaders Council) meeting. If you are a Patrol Leader or in a troop leadership position please come and help plan the upcoming Troop activities. If you are a Patrol Leader and you cannot make it to this meeting you need to talk to your assistant Patrol Leader or someone in your Patrol so that all Patrols are represented at the PLC.
We had to reschedule the Winter Camp Training to Tuesday, February 2nd, from 6:30 to 8:30. Please let me know if you are interested in attending. . The Troop requires both scouts and adults to go through Winter Camp Training once before they can go camping from November through March. This means that if you want to go to Klondike, which is a BLAST, you need to go through this training.
Neil Snyder has reserved a bind to few the Cranes for our Crane viewing trip in March 11 – 13. We need to make a final payment on this right after the Court of Honor on February 8th. We did this trip 2 years ago and both scouts and adults loved it. This is a family trip and we will be staying in a hotel so bring the whole family. Put this on your calendar and stay tuned for more information.
Upcoming signup deadlines
February 22nd for Klondike on February 26 -28
Scoutmaster Minute Review
There was an interesting article in the February Boy’s Life magazine about citizenship. “You are automatically a citizen of the country in which you were born. But that doesn’t automatically make you a good citizen.
As a citizen of your community and your country, you have certain rights, such as freedom of speech. You also have certain responsibilities, such as paying taxes. The more you can do to go above and beyond to improve your community, better you can do your duty as a citizen. This includes community service projects, like projects you undertake as a troop or one that you complete to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
Community service is anything you do that benefits the people or area around you. It shows that you care about others and are willing to help, even if there’s nothing in it for you. Consider it a way of saying thanks for the gifts of citizenship, freedom and democracy that we all enjoy as Americans.”
So don’t just be an average citizen, do your duty and be a good citizen by giving back to your community, country or the world.
