First Troop Parent / Committee Meeting - THIS MONDAY 8/22

Posted on Aug 22 2016 - 1:13pm

All Adults are invited to attend the 1st Troop Parent / Committee Meeting of the year this coming Monday, August 22, at Trinity Bible Church from 7 – 8:30 pm.  All parents of Scouts are welcome and encouraged to attend.  We need your help in multiple ways throughout the year, and this first meeting is a great way to get an overview of all the things the adults do to support the Scouts in our Troop.  The Committee will vote on the Troop event calendar for the year, and any adult who is a registered member of the Troop is eligible to vote on Committee business.  All adults can attend the committee meetings, which are typically held the Monday after a campout, and simultaneously while the Patrol Leadership Council (the boy’s leadership committee) is also meeting at TBC.
