Tonight Troop 60 Scouts completed their shared work on the Personal Management merit badge and now just have to complete the homework, tracking income and expenses and intentions to save money.
Jacob then began the Golf merit badge, which will be our focus when we return from Thanksgiving camp (there is no regular Troop meeting next Thursday).
Finally, Sarah gave her last official Scoutmaster Minute, thanking the Scouts for allowing her to witness their development over the last 5 years into leaders, campers, hikers, and kind, compassionate young people. Thank you!
Troop 60 celebrates our new Scoutmaster, Dawna!
Winter Camp attendees, be sure you are in touch with ASM Nick and have a great time at Winter Camp! Troop 60 returns to regular meetings December 5th. Happy Thanksgiving!
Troop 60 welcomed a new Scout tonight! SPL lead the Troop through the packing list for this weekend’s Winter Camp outing; participating scout families should be in contact with ASM Nick regarding logistics and arrival/departure times.
Tonight is the final meeting of November (there will be no regular meeting next week: Happy Thanksgiving!).
On October 20th, troop 60 participated in a paintball tournament at Off Limits Paintball in Elm Grove. Everyone had a great time as they took on the opposing team.
Tonight Troop 60 was excited to welcome Bo, Jacob, and Tripp from Pack 20 to our meeting. These Webelos Scouts will be transitioning into Troop 60 soon. Jacob led a discussion of the differences between Cub Scouts and BSA, the youth leadership structure, and the rank advancement steps toward Eagle.
Troop 60’s newest Eagle Scouts were also honored with the presentation of Eagle Scout walking sticks. These sticks are custom hand-made and personalized for each Eagle Scout to include dates, advancements, and merit badges specific their accomplishments. They are beautiful keepsakes to mark their Eagle forever.
Tonight Jacob led the Troop through more assignments for the Eagle-required Personal Management merit badge while Scouts snacked on candy and Halloween-themed treats!

The Troop enjoyed a visit from Netami DE Neal, who joined the discussions about types of bank accounts and product warranties (his shared wisdom about carpet cleaning machines is unforgettable).
