Merit Badge Sessions

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

This is not just a chance for reverence, but also a chance for our Scouts to say thank you in some small way for the continued church support and use of the facilities.

Please wear your Class A uniform.
