I want to welcome al the Scouts and parents to the Troop 33 2017-18 year.  School is back in session (or almost!), summer activities are now memories, and we have much to offer for the Scouts this coming year.  I hope you all had a great summer, with travel, family reunions and/or visits, Scouting activities, and just enjoyment of the summer.

We all will be meeting Tuesday evening for a recap of the summer’s Scouting activities, as well as what we had done last year, plus a preview of the multitude of exiting adventures for the months ahead.

Please take the time to refer to the Troop 33 web site Calendar and Activities links to see what activities and events are scheduled.

We will be starting the new leadership term in September, so next week will be the Senior Patrol Leader election.  If you are interested in the SPL position, or any other leadership positions staring in September, the sign-up sheet will be available at Tuesday’s meeting.

We will need four (4) First Year Program Scouts to assist in this Sunday afternoon Eagle Court of Honor.  You will get service hour’s credit as well as Troop activity credit for this event if you have not done it before (a one-time deal).  Please let William Stanley know at Tuesday’s evening if you can attend.

Los Altos History Museum Train Days is September 16 – 17, and they are looking for Scouot support again this year.  You can earn service hour’s credit for this event.  There are six displays and workd shifts are for three hours, 10-1, 1-4, or both on Saturday and Sunday.  There are a limited number of slots and they cannot accommodate “drop-ins,” so you need to sign-up to participate.  Please contact Mr. Doug Dull directly at  

PLC meets Tuesday evening at 6 pm in Room 9 for September planning.

I hope to see you all at our opening meeting!
