SCOUTS, Now is the time to check your records in Scoutbook  If you don’t have access to Scoutbook, please ask your parents to grant you access.  You can see your BSA ID #, rank, completed merit badges, leadership position, patrol, contact information (parents, address, phone number), to name a few details in your record.  It is good to check this information during your scout journey so that you are familiar with these records (and the records are correct) when you start work towards Eagle.  Questions?  Please reach out to the Advancement Chair.

It cannot be emphasized enough that the troop can only have these fantastic scouting opportunities with adult volunteers.  If you do not hold a volunteer position, please contact Charles (charlestai2@yahoo.com) and Cynthia (cynsmn@yahoo.com).  There are a number of key adult volunteer positions open.  Past volunteers are more than willing to assist you during your transition. Communications Coordinator (Troop website and email blasts), Treasurer, Membership Chair.
