Hi Scouts and Families
No meeting Sunday 20 August. We want all of you to be well rested and prepared for your first day of School
Attention all Scouts: Any scout needing a Scoutmaster Conference for Rank Advancement please text or call Mr. Puterbaugh at 351-8826 No Later Than Monday.
Sunday 27 August we will be having our Troop 219 Court of Honor. The event will take place at Joy Lutheran, 6-8pm. Uniform for scouts is Class A with sash (for those who have sashes). We will start in the meeting hall for a potluck style dinner and then proceed to the JLC sanctuary for the formal part of the ceremony. Absolutely this is one of our year's highlights.
This past week I along with 7 parents conducted two simultaneous Boards of Review to look at advancing scout's progress. We had 9 new scouts meet the board and we have 9 new Tenderfoot Scouts.
I am told that Steve has met with several more boys since then and we are looking at the next Board of Review to be 24 Aug at the JLC from 6-8 pm. Scouts will have appointed times and will meet with 3 to 4 adults to answer questions so that we may ascertain if the scouts are ready to advance. Our new scouts are reflective, intuitive, bright, conversational and funny. They tell us they are enjoying their experiences thus far. I can tell you we have a group of nice,responsible, capable, young men in Troop 219 and I am so proud of our Scouts and look forward to the positive impact all of you will have with one another.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I prefer text or phone calls at 748-4350.
