Scouts continued learning about the creation of our unique form of government and the ways that their lives might be different without the colonies’ rebellion against Great Britain and the foundational documents of our country. Please help your Scout review the Bill of Rights (in their Constitution books) and complete 4d 1-10 if they didn’t at the meeting (Scouts should have items 1, 4 a-d, and 5 complete by now).
Scouts were reminded that this Saturday is our first popcorn sale day! Please come on Saturday to the Brookshires on the bypass from 10-2 IN UNIFORM to help raise needed funds for our Troop.
Also, next week a representative from Alliance Compressors will be donating to our Council during the Troop meeting. Please make sure your Scout is wearing his class A uniform for the photograph. Let’s look smart!
Camp Turkey registration is ongoing. Registration forms are linked in last week’s post and in Forms above and can be mailed directly to the Council office.
Finally, Troop 60 received a lovely “thank you” from Dr Chris Hynes, NSU Advance Program director, which is shared below. I’m proud of these Scouts and all they do for our community!
Dear Troop 60,
I wanted to thank you and the Boy Scout Troop 60 volunteers for helping NSU-ADVANCE move out of the dormitories at the end of our program. I received a lot of complimentary feed-back from parents and staff.
Troop 60 exemplified the Boy Scout virtue of “DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE: Many people need help. A cheery smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily and helping when you’re needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do your part to make this a better world.” You truly helped out those in need by the giving of your time and energy (and sweat!)
Helping young students move out of the dormitory may not seem like a huge worldly thing, but the grass-roots effort of Troop 60 was greatly appreciated.
Thank you ALL!!
Chris Hynes, Ph.D.
Director, NSU’s ADVANCE Program for Young Scholars
