Troop 108 Winter Court of Honor – December 8th

The Troop 108 winter Court of Honor is scheduled for Monday, December 8th. Please plan to join us in the old sanctuary to celebrate all of the boy’s achievements. They all have been working hard and we know that you will be surprised by how much they have accomplished since last spring.

There will be a parent meeting that will start at 6:15pm and the Court of Honor will follow at 7:00. We will be discussing troop business, including summer camp plans, and announcing some exciting changes in troop leadership.

Please plan to bring finger foods to share. The troop is providing desert.

Troop Election Time Again

ASPL

Any scout, First Class rank or higher, who is interested in running for Assistant Senior Patrol Leader of the troop should contact Scoutmasters Harllee and Ludolph at tonight’s meeting.  The Scoutmasters reserve the right to deny a scout’s request to run if they feel that the scout isn’t yet ready to fill these big shoes or if the scout has areas in his personal behavior that need work first.

Remember that this is a year-long commitment – the first six months you serve as ASPL and while doing so learning how the SPL job should run.  Then, after six months, you are promoted to SPL and a new ASPL is elected.

The election will be held at the December 1st, 2014 meeting and results will be announced at the troop’s Court of Honor on December 8th.

 

Christmas Angel Tree

 

The past couple of years Troop 108 has sponsored a bicycle for a young boy from the Unity Presbyterian Church Angel Tree.

This year we have been asked if we would sponsor a Scooter and helmet for a deserving child. If you would like to participate, please bring any donation to the next couple of meetings and see Mrs. Ludolph or Mr. Finch.
