First Meeting: Don’t forget the first meeting of the 2021-2022 Scout Year is on Thursday, September 16 at 7:00 pm back at St. Paul’s. Check your email for more specific information.
Help Wanted: The Troop still needs Scout youth leaders (including a webmaster) so please contact SPL Chris K. Without youth leaders, the Troop will not function. If you have ideas for meeting topics, outings, activities, etc., want input into the Troop, and want to continue advancing in rank, considering taking on a youth leader position.
Parking: Please check your email for the Otisville Carnival Parking sign up (September 10th, 11th, and 12th). This is an extremely important fundraiser for the Troop so please sign up to help. There are still many open volunteer slots.
Fun Fact: Did you know that when the Space Exploration Merit Badge was introduced in 1965, Astronaut Ed White took along an actual Space Ex MB with him during the first ever spacewalk by an American. If you ever go to Philmont stop by the National Scouting Museum where the patch lives. Want to read more about the Space Ex MB? Bryan on Scouting’s post has more interesting facts.
