Thank you, Mr. Rypka for all of your work on this!
COFFEE POLICY OUTLINED
Current Troop policy says that it is never
appropriate for any scout under the age of 18
(which means all youth members) to drink
coffee or any coffee beverage. Decaf included.
The OA is looking for scouts (must be members of the OA) to be
on the ceremonies team. The goal is to get 10-15 scouts who
would be willing to participate in 1 or 2 ceremonies per year.
beyond the Eagle Rank. Currently there are only 3-4 scouts which means it is very
difficult to put on any ceremonies other than the ones at district
functions. Until we have an OA rep, interested scouts may see
Mr. Marineau for details. USEFUL MOOSE & MUSKY NEWS
Each issue we’ll highlight something just for new Families. BUT
parents might find an antler tip or two in here, too!
If your Scout received a rank advancement at the Court of Honor,
you notice that it was pinned upside down – your Scout may turn
it right side up after he has done his 1st “good turn” towards
others. (Then he can sew it on properly, of course!)
The cards you receive with your rank advancements and merit
badges should be kept! This is your son’s record of completing these important accomplishments.
Merit Badges are sewn on a special diagonal green sash (available
at the Scout store or The Chalkboard), usually in rows of 3 across.
Ensure your Scout sews his MBs on the FRONT of the sash, as it is
worn over the RIGHT shoulder. Some Scouts prefer to wear their
sash folded and then tucked over their belts.
Missing an item from your Scouting uniform? Mesdames See and
Wycklendt manager our uniform exchange program. Perhaps
there is something gently used in their stash you can buy –
nominal fee of $1 per item. They also have for sale new hats,
scarfs, slides, and a few Class B shirts. Check them out.
