I have attached the meeting minutes from our last meeting. We welcomed potential new scouts this past Sunday. It's that time of year where we will be welcoming new scouts. Tonight we have some important decisions to make and items to discuss regarding Summer Camp, Potential Merit Badge University, Philmont and upcoming camp-outs. Please join us. New ideas always welcome!
Troop 219 Committee Chair
Happy New Year everyone. I trust that you enjoyed your holiday.
We have an Eagle Board of Review at 7:30 for Chris Fueg. So the Committee meeting is rescheduled for 24 Jan at 7:30. Apologize for the inconvenience.
Troop Committee Chair
Parents and Current Committee Members,
What: Committee Mtg
When: Wed., 15 Nov, at 7:30 pm
We are quickly approaching 2018. The Troop has just changed leadership positions and the adult leadership will also transition new ASMs in the near future.
In addition to upcoming events, and Campouts we will discuss the Christmas CoH (save the date 10 Dec 1-4pm @ United Methodist Church of Chugiak).
As always if anyone wishes to include specific items to the Agenda please forward those to me through tomorrow by noon.
Trying new meeting format to decrease the meeting to no more than an hour. We know your time is valuable and I certainly appreciate participation from not only ASM's but parents at large.

Who: Any identified Merit Badge Counselors who have already volunteered to teach (so far we have Aviation, Personal Management, Communications, Citizenship of the Nation, music, art, scholarship, traffic safety and automotive maintenance) We would like to offer 12 courses. We will also be having the 2nd Annual Dutch Oven Master Chef team competition. We have so many opportunities to teach our scouts. If you want to be a Merit Badge Counselor please come; let me help you with the process. Additionally, any one who wishes to volunteer with food prep, overnight supervising of the scouts, or any other duties that come up during this 2 1/2 day event.
When: Planning Meeting 5 October, at 7:00 pm at JLC
You will be seeing many messages from me in the next couple of weeks as this Educational Offering requires a lot of support to ensure its success. Scouts will be allowed to take a minimum of 3 merit badges and possibly 4 depending on the number of instructors.
*the first person to spot a mistake on this email and respond by email will receive a candy bar of their choice.
Thanks for all you do
