This week’s meeting opened with a uniform inspection and discussion of what having and wearing a uniform means (and what it means to be a Scout). Iditarod participants talked about their weekend adventure and the competition, and we made plans for our own race-style skill challenge in coming weeks.
Then, Troop 60’s Order of the Arrow representative explained the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s Honor Society, and how to qualify for election.
Elections for the Spring fellowship and ordeal in April are next week, so Scouts are encouraged to attend and vote for the Scouts who best exemplify the Scout Oath, Law, and cheerful service to others. Scout Handbooks were updated with recent camping and service hours, and the Troop talked about the upcoming backpacking trip.
And while all this was going on, one Scout passed a Board of Review.
Congratulations to our newest Star Scout, Stephen!
