Committee Corner May 2015

The May Parent Committee Meeting will be this Tuesday, May 5th. As a reminder, all parents are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings the first Tuesday of each month.

April Court of Honor

A big thank you to Jyll Doubleday for her help in organizing the April Court of Honor. Thank you to everybody who attended and brought a meal, dessert or drink. Thanks to you, we had a wonderful event and nobody went hungry!


Congrats to the entire Troop for their fantastic performance at the District Camporee last month. Once again, the Scouts brought home multiple awards and made us all proud.

Thank you to Jim and Sandy Hirsch for their help in organizing the Saturday night BBQ at Camporee.

Parent Reminders

Summer Camp is coming up soon. Please be sure to help your son get his merit badge choices into Mr. Brown ASAP so they can be requested.

Please check with Susan Swider for any outstanding payments for Summer Camp or Philmont.

If you have any questions about camp scholarships, please contact me, Susan Swider or Andy Barrad.

I will not be able to attend this month’s Parent Committee meeting, but if you have any questions, please feel free to email me. I receive all messages directed to [email protected] or you can email my personal email address.
