  • This week we will be voting for our new Sr Patrol Leader as well as each of our Patrol Leaders.  This year, since the patrols will be doing all the programming, the patrol leader positions will be particularly important.  The Assistant Scoutmasters and Mr Pullen have also made the committment to really help out the patrol leaders and Sr Patrol leader in doing their job.  If you want to take on the task, then we will have your back.
  • All positions other than the SPL and PL's are appointed by the SPL with the approval of the Scoutmaster.  If you are interested in one of these positions (scribe, ASPL, Historian, QM, Webmaster, Bugler, Leave No Trace Trainer, etc) then you will need to talk to the newly elected SPL and let him know what you will be able to do to help the troop in that position.  If you are a den chief and want to step down, let Mr Pullen know.  Otherwise, all the den chiefs will stay in the position they are currently in.
  • During patrol time, each of the patrols will be working on their next program month, 
    • Gang Green=Wilderness Survival  you must finalize your meeting plans!  you're up in two weeks!
    • Donuts of Destiny=Cooking
    • Spartans=Public Service, including game night, broomball, prep for game camp
  • Please sign up for the next adopt a highway which is on September 26.  We are hoping to really turn this committment around this year.
  • If you can help out the pack and Mr Stuart, please come to the Pack Signup night looking sharp at 6:30 to help them make walking sticks and generally tell the little kids how great scouts is!!! (before the troop meeting).
  • Monday, Sep 21st Mt lebanon will be holding a community wide signup night at Bird park (by the fire ring).  All the Troops in Mt Lebanon have been asked to participate and to show off scouting to kids thinking about joining.  If you would be interested in representing the troop, sign up on our website.  So far we only have one and we need a couple.  We'll be showing off our banner and lighting matches with an axe!
  • Finally, don't forget the Court of Honor on Sep 24th. All families are invited to attend and celebrate the accomplishments of our scouts and leaders.
