Troop Elections

Posted on May 18 2020 - 10:56pm

Even with all that is going on, it's that time for our troop elections. We are currently working to allow scouts to indicate what positions they would like to take to support the troop, and develop a good method to share information.

A Google Classroom was created to allow Scouts to vote in the upcoming election. The first round will be to indicate your interest in the position. This needs to be completed by Monday 25 May, 2020.

We will then run a voting period to allow scouts to select those who are interested in the position.

Troop Meetings Suspended

Posted on Mar 13 2020 - 1:13pm

Hello all,

We are going to suspend troop meetings while the schools are closed, for the same reasoning. The health authorities are asking us all to take steps which will slow or at least spread out the transmission rate of the coronavirus. This will help our health care system to manage the most critical patients with less chance of being overloaded.

Your Scoutmaster and his assistants, as well as the troop committee, will be looking for ways to maintain everyone’s involvement with scouting.

If anyone reading this is having difficulties managing the upset in your daily routines, even if it’s not directly related to the troop or to scouting, please reach out to me.

Be Safe, and Be Prepared,

Thom Spear
Committee Chair
