Looking Ahead
February 29th, 2004 Patrol Leaders Council (5:30 - 6:30 PM) followed by Parent/Troop Committee Meeting (7:00 - 8:00 PM)

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.

Possible Upcoming Events:
  • Ice Fishing - looking to complete that Fishing Badge? See your leaders if you are interested...
  • Polar Bear Campout - tentatively March 13th. Possibly inviting Cub Scout Pack 13 for building shelters...
