Upcoming Dates & Updates!

Several parents & leaders met this past weekend to talk about the upcoming year in the Troop & to establish a draft calendar.  This calendar is a work in progress.  It will be reviewed & adjusted at Committee Meetings as needed.  Parents are encouraged to attend Troop & Committee Meetings for the latest updates and to volunteer to continue to make Troop 20 awesome!  Please also check the blog for updates on dates, timing & location.  There are a lot of exciting activities in the works for the upcoming Scout year! 

Ryan Grady's Eagle Project is underway!  Ryan needs help this Saturday, 9/3 starting at 9am.  If you are able to attend, adults are encourage to bring drills to assist.  Scouts are encouraged to wear clothes that may get dirty and to bring work gloves, water & a hat for sun protection.  Scouts will be painting the benches that the adults will be assembling.  Ryan's project is to build an outdoor classroom at the HBB school so that each elementary school will have their own outdoor classroom!
The address to help  on this Saturday, 9/3 is 37 Winter Street.
On 9/25, Ryan's project will continue at HBB starting at 9am.  Hopefully that will complete Ryan's project!  Way to go, Ryan!

The first Committee & Troop Meetings of the year will be held on Thursday, 9/15.  The location is Central Congregational Church located at 2 Webster Street, Middleboro, MA.  The Committee Meeting will be at 6pm and the Troop Meeting will be at 7pm.  At the Committee Meeting we hope to elect a new Scoutmaster as we have a couple of people interested.  If you are interested in the Scoutmaster position, please prepare a letter of interest and see the details below on the blog post from 8/18. 
We are still in need of an Advancement Chair & an Activities Chair.  If you are interested in assisting the Troop, please reach out to a leader or Sherri Swindle directly.  Please see blog post from 8/18 for more details on these positions.
At the Committee Meeting we will also discuss leadership positions for the Troop.  There are many opportunities for Scouts to earn credit for leadership positions.  More details to come on these exciting positions!
