First of all, congratulations to our newest Eagle Scout, Jonathan! Oh, he’s a jolly good fellow… Seriously though. Jon’s been in the troop longer than I have, and that’s a really long time! Thanks Jon for all your commitment and contributions to Troop 900.
Here’s some goings-on in the troop’s near future:
On the 31, this Saturday, we’ll be having a car wash at the Pep Boys on Crater Road from 1-5 PM. Tell your friends! With the enormous cloud of pollen that’s been recently plaguing the central Virginia area, I’m sure everyone is eager to get that yucky plant stuff off their windshields and leave pollen collection to the bees.
For any of you who showed up for a meeting tonight and for some reason couldn’t find anyone there, it’s because there wasn’t a meeting tonight! We have a Court of Honor tomorrow in the social hall. Wear your Class A best, and don’t forget your sash! Oh, and Friends of Scouting will be there too.
A Spring Break hiking trip is on the horizon, planned to take place between the Thursday and Saturday of break. It will be in the bee-yootiful Shenandoah National Park. Let the Scoutmaster know if you want to come, or else the trip could be canceled!
For scouts 13 and older, a Wilderness First Aid class is being offered at Albright’s on 4/27-4/29. It will cost $60. Again, let the scoutmaster know if you’re interested.
Merit badge weekend is in less than 2 months, and it’s a great way for new scouts to get up to 8 shiny merit badges for their moms to put on their sash. KIDDING! All Boy Scouts do their own sewing, am I right?
That about sums it up. There’s a new calendar out, so the next post will be an update of that. Be sure to check it out!
