I wanted to take a quick moment and wish everyone a happy new year! Like most people, our troop has several goals set for 2016…
We are always looking for more ways to help communicate with everyone involved in the troop. There have been a number of times that we have heard “I had no idea” regarding upcoming events. To help prevent this, please take a moment and complete our communication survey located here.
This will help us find better ways to communicate with everyone and keep those dreaded 4 words from ever having to be uttered again.
At a PLC (Patrol Leaders’ Council) last month, the youth leaders agreed that the 1 trip a month is a good goal to carry into the new year (for the main troop). With this in mind, we will be putting dates on the calendar for the entire year within the next week [DONE].
Please be aware that there may be months with 2 trips depending on Order of the Arrow events (these dates are already on the calendar).
As leaders, we can only push so hard for our candidates to earn their Eagle. We rely on the candidates themselves and their parents with support from the leaders to make reasonable goals.
With support from everyone involved, we have 5 or more candidates that we would like to see wrap up their projects this year…
Let’s make it happen! 🙂
Of course there are other goals on our list (advancement, training, etc), but these are the ones that most stick out right now in my mind.
