March 28, 2004: PLC (5:30 - 6:30 PM) and Parent/Committee (7:00 - 8:00 PM) Meetings
Beginning with the 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.
