Troop Current Events
Welcome to a new year of Scouting! I am proud to be taking over as Scoutmaster this year. Last summer when Mr Caporale has asked me if I would take the position, nobody would have imagined the challenges we are dealing with today. COVID has made us reexamine the ways we plan and hold Scouting events. The summer camp at home and a completed Eagle project proved that Scouting can continue in the era of social distancing, masks, and Zoom meetings.
We have been planning some exciting things, some new ideas and roles we hope to implement in the meetings, hikes and campouts, and have several Eagle projects and fundraisers on the way.
Here’s to a great year!
