Scoutmaster Update

This past week was great!  First, we had a special Troop presentation for Mattie Coolen, honoring him for all the extraordinary work and support he provided to the Troop during his three years with us, then we had Thanksgiving (plenty of turkey sandwiches for a few days!), and on Saturday, we had a special Eagle Court of Honor for Trevor McGall, to include a video connection with his grandfather and one of his uncles in Southern California.  Trevor’s grandfather and two uncles are Eagle Scouts, and it made the ceremony even better for Trevor and his parents.  A very special thank you to Kimberly Dickerson for all her work setting up the ceremony, Brent Browning (Emcee), Alan Cyron (conducting the Eagle pledge), Andrew Aguilar (SPL), and Andrew Zhu and Bryan Webb (honor detail).

There are still a few time slots for Scouts to sign up for Wreath Sales on Sunday, December 6th.

Saturday, December 12th, is the Salvation Army Box Making service event we have been involved with for the last few years.  This is actually very fun, it is a great way to give to those that are less fortunate than us, and Scouts earn service credit hours.

Next Tuesday we do not have a regular Troop meeting at the LAUMC Creekside building.  We will be having fun at Sky High in Santa Clara in lieu of the meeting.  Sign-ups are still open.  Pay attention to the special Sky High waiver to be completed on line with the company, as well as our normal activity consent form.


THIS Tuesday

Mrs. Stanley will be conducting a Board of Review.

Keeping with the STEM theme for the month of December and before the Council’s STEM Merit Badge Midway on Saturday, the Main Troop will be having some of the Scout’s parents involved in STEM-based jobs and activities making presentations of what it is they do.  Kind of like a “bring your parent to school day!”

First Year Scouts will be catching up on rank requirements.

Sign up today for Jump Sky High Dec 8

Susan Stick

In place of our regular Troop 33 meeting on December 8, 2015, we will meet at Jump Sky High.  Check in at 6:45, and jump from 7:00 - 9:00 pm.  Scouts must provide their own transportation to and from Sky High.  Sign up today, and come ready to bounce off the walls!   

For questions, contact the AC Susan Stick or the SMIC Brett Pauly.

Mrs. Stick will be at the meeting this Tuesday to collect your forms and payment.
