Looking Ahead
January 25th, 2004 PLC (5:30 - 6:30 PM) and Parent/Committee (7:00 - 8:00 PM) Meetings

Beginning with these meetings in January, we are setting aside a half hour for anyone who has questions about Scouting and the Scouting program. Scoutmaster (Brian Tarbox) and Assistant Scoutmasters and Committee Members will be available from 6:30 - 7:00 between the PLC Meeting and the Committee Meeting to answer any questions and offer an overview of how the Boy Scout program works. Scouts and adults are cordially invited to these informational sessions. We hope these informal meetings will help newcomers learn the ropes and also answer questions from the more seasoned Scouts and adults.

Sunday, February 1st: Casco Bay District Scout Show
Each troop in the Casco Bay District sets up a booth at the Cumberland County Civic Center to show what Scouts do.
