THE REWARDS TRIP IS COMING!!!

THE REWARDS TRIP IS COMING!!! This year, we will be heading west to Kalamazoo where we will be touring the AIRZOO museum, eating out at a local restaurant and then heading to CLIMB KALAMAZOO for an all-night LOCK-IN!  We will be departing on Saturday, December 14th and returning the following morning. For this one event, small electronics including cell phones will be allowed!

TO BE ELIGIBLE TO ATTEND THE REWARDS TRIP, SINCE JUNE 15th, SCOUTS NEED TO HAVE:

1) Attended at least 3 Troop Meetings or PLCs.

Urgent Need for Den Chiefs!

Scouts,

There is an immediate need for Den Chiefs to support local Cub Scout packs in our area. Den Chiefs are needed for all Cub Scout ranks. The Den Chief is a leadership role that qualifies for leadership credit. Key responsibilities include:

- Assist the Cub Scout Den Leader at Den Meetings and Pack Meetings (this is key - you need to be present and engaged with the Cub Scouts)

- Meet with the Den Leader to review the Den and Pack meeting plans

- If serving as a Webelos Den Chief, prepare boys to join Boy Scouting

Fall Court of Honor Tonight!!!

Reminder that the Fall Court of Honor is tonight at the Community House. Flags go up at 7:30 pm sharp!  For this CoH, we will be presenting Rank Advancements, Merit Badges and Special Awards earned since the last CoH in May, including all Merit Badges earned at Summer Camp!

All family members all welcome, so come out and celebrate all the great achievements of our Scouts!!

Reminders:

- All Scouts should wear their Merit Badge sash.

- All OA scouts MUST arrive at 6:45 pm to help set up for the CoH.

See you tonight!
