Volunteers

posted Jun 9, 2013, 3:58 PM by Colonia Scouter

There have been several appeals to parents to become active in the troop. It is simply impossible to run this troop without the help of ALL the parents. We need everyone's cooperation to make it possible. 

Can we count on you to help?

Please come to the next troop meeting and see any of the adult leaders and simply say: "I want to help - what can I do?" Remember volunteering is good for everyone including your Scout!

The new troop site has public and private sections.The public sections can be accessed by anyone who enters the web site. The private section includes troop photos, trip planning guides and other material that is intended solely for registered members of the troop and parents. 

In order to access this additional content, you must receive permission from the webmaster for this site. Permissions are controlled based on a list of approved log in email addresses. If you already have a gmail account, then simply provide your gmail address to the webmaster at the link below. If you do not have a gmail account, you can use any email address but the first time you try to log in, you will notice that you do not have a password to enter. In order to fix that, simply check off the option for a forgotten password. You will then receive an email from google with a link to "reset" your password. Of course, this wont be a "reset" but rather the creation of a password. Once that is done, you now will have an email and password that will allow you access to all the content on our website. 

If you want this additional access, please email a request to the link below. The request must include the following information:

1. Who is making the request.
2. Confirm whether the account will only be accessed by the adults, Scout or both. Note, it is preferable to maintain separate accounts for scouts and adults, but not mandatory.
3. What email address should be authorized.

Once this information is provided and permission granted, you will be sent a confirmation email from "Colonia Scouter". Please speak to Mr. Ghiano if you have any problems setting up an account or accessing the full features of the web site.



Merit Bages

A reminder to all Scouts to complete their merit badges prior to the next Court of Honor. If you have questions about requirements or would like to know what merit badges are available, this link to MERITBADGE.ORG will be very useful. In the coming days, we will post a list of adults in our troop that are signed up to be Merit Badge Counselors. It is the Scout's responsibility to reach out to these adult counselors and make arrangements to meet and work on their merit badges. Keep in mind that there are 12 specific merit badges required to attain the rank of Eagle Scout and you should avoid waiting until the last minute to complete these!
