Summer camp chat, eagle practice, and ice cream – what a night!

Our meeting next Tuesday (6/2) will be Charles G’s Eagle Court of Honor at the Ash Creek Clubhouse. While the ceremony is at 7:30, scouts and leaders are asked to arrive about 6:45 to help set up and get in position.

Thursday (6/4) will be a PLC. Carson Building 7:30.

Tuesday (6/9) there will be no scout meeting due to exams.

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.

Mr. Tehan thanked those who helped with the flags over Memorial Day.

The updated Summer Camp Merit Badge list and information was passed out at the meeting. Those going to summer camp should let Mrs. Coffey know what badges they want to take. Check on the Prerequisites, they need to be done ahead of time. Summer Camp Medical forms need to be turned in. Payments are also due – fees for boys $210, leaders $100. Mr. Showalter can let you know what is in your scout account and if you’ve made a deposit.

We are hoping to do a day trip to the Spy Museum on June 20th, but we need leaders to step forward to lead the trip. If you can be a leader on this trip contact Mr. Tehan.

Also for leaders – Please go to ww.Scouting .org and update your youth protection training and other on-line training.

Important Note to Parents: If you are dropping your scouts off before the meeting, please make sure that there is at least one leader there before you leave - It is an important safety concern.

Advice from the Scoutmaster: Don’t get discouraged! Discouragement is the devil’s favorite tool!
