Dear Troop 354 Families,
Please offer special prayers for all the healthcare persons on the front line of this fight helping the recovery efforts! Please offer prayers for everyone during this period of the unknown, remember to practice the Scout Oath & Law within your families and with your neighbors!
As we enter the month of April 2020 and continue “Social Distancing”, I want to share with you the plans for the days covering of 3/30 – 4/5 (ALL TROOP ACTIVITIES ARE CANCELLED). I will continue to monitor events over the weeks ahead and issue Scoutmaster's updates as necessary to keep everyone informed.
IS THAT ALL MR. AL?
CAN I LET MY BRAIN TURN TO MUSH DURING THIS TIME AT HOME?
OR CAN I STIMULATE MYSELF TO THINK OUT OF THE BOX?
WELL IT’S ALL IN YOUR CONTROL – ATTEND OUR VIRTUAL TROOP MEETING 7:30PM ON 4/1/2020 – MR. HUGH & MR PRICE’S BIRTHDAY!
Rank Advancements worth doing (family orientated) :
Look in your handbook – 2nd – 1st Class Rank Requirements – as an example 2nd class req. 7a; 8c &d - 1st class req. 7d &e ; 9b & c
Go to the following web sites:
Login on Scoutbook - Here you can see your Advancement Records for your rank, partial MB’s, etc.
Click on MB’s & print off a MB workbook and fill in your progress for each requirement & bring to your MB counselor meeting.
Open the site scroll down to the bottom to the “Scouts BSA” section – look at the suggested activities and click on the MB’s to obtain the requirements for each.
Please inform me by email if you starting on a MB so I can sign your Blue Card!
Zach is setting up a virtual Troop Meeting online for this Weds. @7:30 PM; using SKYPE program, hopefully, it will would work best for us using multiple devices. If you have an IPhone or an Android phone you can download the SKYPE app ahead before this Wednesday. If you have a laptop, desktop or tablet computer with a camera & microphone the program should work as well.
Zach will be contacting you to establish a SKYPE connection so you’ll be ready for our virtual Troop Meeting.
As for Week Camp 2020 – according to the Camp Director the plans are still in place to have week camp as scheduled – we’ll know more after Easter concerning WC’2020.
