Hey Scouts, Scouters and Parents,
Looking forward to an exciting year with Troop 77. I am looking forward to working with Chris D as SPL.
He had his initial planning meeting and has a terrific set of events lined up. It was impressive to see the turn out of Scouts who wanted to give input to planning Troop activities. He will be looking for help planning these events.
Chris also plans to organize the Troop into patrols by age. Each patrol will have a Patrol Leader and an Assistant elected from his age group. Rumor has it that there will be a "Pine Tree" patrol for a particular aged group of Troop 77 members.
Vicente will oversee the other leadership positions; Librarian, Historian, Scribe, Troop Guide, Bugler, OA Troop Representative, Quartermaster, and Instructor. Don't forget that Den Chief is a leadership postion and a very important one since it promotes the Troop to Cubbies where our next generation of Boy Scouts comes from. If you need a leadership postion for advancement, make sure you mention it to either Chris or Vicente so you can be brought on board.
Our first campout will be a Canoe and Kayak trip down the North River. We had such a great time last June the Scouts decided to do it again!
See you Sunday.
