2016/17 Scouts season kickoff

Greetings Scouts and Parents;

Hope everyone has been enjoying the last few weeks of Summer vacation.  Lots of scouting things going on – Weekly meeting changes, Court of Honor, first trip and S.O.A.R.

We are adjusting our meeting time, to 7:30 with the first meeting next Wednesday (Sept 7th).   Scouts should plan on bringing their scout books and wearing their class A uniforms.  At the meeting, we will have our elections for offices. If you are interested in holding an office, please write up a brief speech that you can present to the troop on “why you would be the best ———–” .

On Sept 17th, we will be having a Court of Honor.  All scouts plan on being at the hall at 10:00am for setup and in their Class A uniform.  Guests will arrive at 11:00.

The first trip of the year is planned for the weekend of Sept 24th/25th.  We are planning some camping/hiking and details will be provided as we get closer to the weekend.   Our October trip will be to attend S.O.A.R, the Mass Scout Jamboree, on Oct 8th -> 10th.   Other trips and events are now updated in the troop Calendar.

And… if you were not at Camp this summer…   Yes, again… we find that Westford’s smallest and most spirited troop has won the Troop of the week for Camp Sandy Beach!   YEA!!!    It was a full week of cheering, merit badges, and advancement.

Thanks;

Mr. Valante
