Dear Troop 354 Families,
At our 5/15/2019 Troop Meeting we’ll be conducting Order of the Arrow elections for those eligible. In order to have an election ballot we need to have 50% of the Troop’s youth membership present to vote. It is important that we have every Scout be present at our Troop meeting on 5/15/2019 to have a successful election.
On Saturday 5/18/2019 from 3-9PM will be having an “Activity Day”; we’ll be gathering at OLH/SL hall and begin hiking to the KofC hall in Edgemere. The Knights will be treating the Troop members to a dinner and afterwards we’ll be participating in a US Flag retirement ceremony (like last year’s event). We’ll have the Scouts call their families in time for them to come down & participate in the ceremony once we know the particulars. More details about the 5/18/19 Day Activity will be given out at our 5/15/2019 meeting and via text & email by Friday 5/17/2019.
Don’t forget that Week Camp Physicals must be valid & current for Camp Sinoquipe July 7 – 13 /2019. See Mr. Richard to be sure if the physical we have on file will be valid for Week Camp!
Just off the cuff Alex, Eric, & Ben will need new physicals. PLEASE NOTE; ONLY BSA PHYSICAL FORMS ARE ACCEPTABLE! DO NOT USE ANOTHER FORM! Go the following web page, download & save the BSA form, pre fill out and take the form to your doctor for signature ;“Events over 72 hours”: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/
Mr. John registered all the Scouts for the Merit Badges Class they wanted, once again we’ll be offering to purchase the MB books so each Scout can prepare the prerequisites needed to be completed before attending Week Camp. Each MB book cost $5 – we’ll be collecting the list of books & monies at our 5/22 meeting.
Parent’s remember to clear any conflicts on Wednesday, June 12th; we’ll be having a Week Camp parents information meeting at 7:30PM. One parent must attend to receive all the Week Camp information and handouts about Camp Sinoquipe, it’s also a great time to ask questions.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me via email.
See you at our Troop meeting & OA elections this Wednesday 5/12!
In Troop 354
