    August 15th Meeting! 

    The first meeting of the school year is this Thursday, August 15th. The meeting will start promptly at 7 pm. Please arrive about 6:50 to help set up.

    This meeting is a packed meeting. We will hold elections, choose a new Patrol Patch, discuss December – July activities and dates we do not have Mesnier. We will also discuss the Uniform Policy and Cell Phones.

    Court of Honor is Thursday, September 5th. The last day to turn in any completed Merit Badge Cards to be awarded at the September Court of Honor will be August 15th.

    If a Scout needs to have their book signed off on, they need to bring it to the August 15th Meeting. The last day to do a Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Reviews will be on August 22nd.

    As we are now resuming meetings, if a Scout needs a Merit Badge card, they need to ask either Mrs. Tague or Mr. Nehring. We will no longer accept an email or text from parents. The SCOUT needs to make sure they ask well in advance of any Merit Badge activity. It is the responsibility of the Scout and Parent to read the requirement for each Merit Badge that the Scout is signed up for

    Cell Phone Policy 

    As we approach the start of the school year and our first meeting, I am reminding parents that cell phones, MP3 players and any electronics are NOT allowed at meetings, camping trips or OA Events. The ONLY exception when one of the Scoutmasters approve. (That will only be CABIN camping trips. No electronics are allowed in tents, especially phones and cameras.) We will discuss this with the Scouts at our first meeting.
