Reminder for all Scouts from Mr. Dennis

Posted on Jan 17 2019 - 9:29pm

During the PLC meeting on regular Monday troop meetings, 6:30 p.m., at the Scout hut, help will be available for any Scout who hasn’t yet earned First Class rank. Those who have earned First Class rank or above are asked to be instructors. It’s a great opportunity for older Scouts to teach using the EDGE method. Participating will not only show you have Scout Spirit for your own future rank advancement, but will give you a chance to practice your Scout skills, leadership skills, and gives time to know better the newer or younger scouts in our troop.
