First and foremost – Congratulations to Charles G!

Next week 6/9 there is No Scout Meeting (Hanover County Schools Exams) but the Committee will meet and do advancement for the boys who need Boards of Review (who have already done their scoutmaster Conferences).

On Wednesday June 10th at 7:00 PM the Hanover County Board of Supervisors will present proclamations congratulating Eagle Scouts Kurt G. and Charles G. the Board of Supervisors meets in the Board Room of the County Administration Building at Hanover Courthouse. Scouts and leaders are encouraged to attend for the ceremony.

We will have our next regular meeting on 6/16. On the 16th and 23rd we will be going over information and preparation for summer camp. We plan on building a Gateway for our campsite. If you have ideas for a gateway bring them on the 16th!

Our meeting on the 16th will be the first meeting of the Summer! Our SPL has graciously decided that we will go to Class B uniforms for summer meetings! (Class B is a scout related t-shirt ). We will still travel to all special events and camps in full class A’s.

If you still owe money for summer camp, bring it to the meeting on the 16th.

Plans for the trip to the Spy Museum on the 20th are in jeopardy! Without leaders to go, we will need to reschedule. Last call for leaders! Please contact the Scoutmaster (scoutmaster@troop555.net)

We have plenty of leaders going to summer camp, but we would like a volunteer with a truck and towing hitch to take the trailer out on Sunday 6/28 and bring it back Saturday 7/4. If you can help out with this please contact the Scoutmaster (scoutmaster@troop555.net)

Advice from the Scoutmaster: “We never fail when we try to do our duty, we always fail when we neglect to do it.” Sir Robert Baden Powell
