Parents Meeting


August 30, 2010    7:00 - 8:30 pm


Parents meeting to cover troop information and plans moving forward.

This is to remind you that Monday night is our Kick Off night for our new scout year. We are excited about being at this point. We strongly believe we have a lot of good things ahead in this upcoming year.


Parents, it is vitally important that you are all in attendance for this meeting. We want to make sure that we start out on the same page and that we stay in contact in a face to face forum periodically. This is YOUR unit, and we want to ensure that your scout is getting the most out of the program as possible.

We will have information on upcoming events, fund raisers, etc.. Even if your scout is a "short timer" (working on his Eagle) - you should really be in attendance.

We look forward to working with each of you as we move forward in this scouting year!
