First Meeting at the Wesley Center a big success!

Troop 60 had their first meeting at the new location–the Wesley on University Parkway–and it was a great evening! Scouts learned and practiced square lashings and clove hitches individually and then using the EDGE method to assist other Scouts.

Then they broke into groups and those Scouts who have finished the Citizenship in the World merit badge led an overview of what it means to be a world citizen and the methods of becoming a U.S. citizen. They used question cards based on the Civics citizenship test to challenge each other about their knowledge of US government, the Constitution, and history.

Meanwhile, adult leaders discussed fall fundraising efforts and met with Scouts about their advancement records.

Last but certainly not least, three Scouts made exciting advancements! JP met for his Eagle rank Scoutmaster Conference; Stephen held his Life Board of Review; and Noah held his Second Class Board of Review! Congratulations to all!

Popcorn sales begin on Saturday, so be sure you’ve checked your email and signed up for a slot so your Scout can assist with our fundraising. Contact our Popcorn Kernal, Amanda, with any questions.
