Troop Meetings – Mondays, 7-8:30PM

Scoutmaster's Corner

Troop 845,

The time finally arrived! This year’s Wimporee starts in five days. We have a full house with approximately 130 Scouts from within the Aquia District planning to attend. Our Scouts will enjoy themselves learning new skills, camping in cabins, and making new acquaintances. If you haven't already done so, please consider volunteering of yourself in any of several areas of your choosing. The success of this event depends on our support. On that note, there are 33 Scouts in need of transportation to the campsite. At this time, the troop has six vehicles committed to supporting this movement, but we could use two additional vehicles. We will be meeting at SPC on Friday at 5 PM and departing at 5:30. Please email me (crrodriguez44@verizon.net) if you can help.

Scout Sunday - we have eight Scouts signed up for this event tomorrow. Please consider coming out and supporting SPC. They do so much for us and ask for very little in return. If you can come, please be at SPC at 10:00 AM in your Class A with sash.

On Monday, the troop will conduct final preparations for the Wimporee. Scouts will be rehearsing their skits and songs for the Saturday evening campfire program. I look forward to seeing all the Scouts present for the rehearsal – it will be blast. Additionally, the Scouts will have an inspection, so they should come in their Class A uniform & sashes. Several Boards of Review will be held for Scouts who are ready for advancement.

Please remember parents and Scouts should discuss and sign the Code of Conduct, and then bring it to the Troop Meeting. Also, bring any medical forms and payments for Wimporee and Summer Camp.

Yours in Scouting
SM Rodriguez

Parent Review of the Code of Conduct

Posted on Jan 9 2016 - 8:35pm

The troop bylaws require each scout and a parent/guardian to read and sign the Troop 845 Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Policy each year during re-charter. Last month, the scouts reviewed the policy with their scout leaders and signed the form. Please review the attached policy with your scout. You and your scout may either sign the form at home and bring it with you to the next troop meeting or sign the form we have on file at the church. You can find a complete copy of the troop bylaws on the troop website. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support. Becky Ragon, Committee Chair
