Boy Scout Troop 30 Newsletter

December 2015

Court Of Honor

A special ceremony for boys moving up ranks and receiving merit badges will be held on December 21st. This is a wonderful time to celebrate all the scouts accomplishments before moving into a new year.

Awards for popcorn and prizes will also be distributed after the Court of Honor.

Wreaths

Wreaths should be finished up and money should be coming in.

The troop has discovered the quality of the wreaths are not what we are use to. Many people have complained and we will be searching for a new supplier next year. Ron Bowerman found a replacement for us with very little time ~ Thank you Ron! Now we have time to make informed decisions. If anyone has suggestions, please let John Shafer know. John is now in charge of the wreaths.

New Scout Rank Requirements

Beginning January 1, 2016, scouts will have to meet NEW requirements in order to obtain the next rank. These will probably not be in your Boy Scout Handbook since it is older than the new update.

"Scout" is not currently a rank, but will become a rank effective January 1, 2016. So boy scouts will go through a Board Of Review before obtaining the Scout rank from now on.

Scouts Not Meeting

When school is not in session, scouts do not meet. We will be on vacation from December 24th until January 4th, when school is back in session.
