Troop 60 broke into patrols and did another quick reminder about what to pack and how to prepare for the campout this weekend, assuring the new Scouts that the cold and rain will be fun! Just pack lots of socks and spare shoes. These kids are tough!
Then they talked about how to write a proper letter to our senators or representative last night, and the Patrol Leader shared his example letters and discussed recent news issues. After brainstorming topics, the Scouts had a chance to draft their letter. These should be revised and mailed to complete item 8 in the Citizenship in the Nation merit badge requirements.
Scouts attending Camp Turkey need to meet at the parking lot on Saturday by noon with all of their gear; we will take the van up to Garland Scout Ranch for a fun-filled long campout!
