Just a quick note to update you on our boys.
Troop 113 Pride!
First, let me just say how proud I am of our boys. Last night, we packed 25(ish) boxes of food for starving and malnourished kids all over the world. That works out to be 5400 meals. Not only that, but we were CLEARLY the fastest group at packing these thanks to some great teamwork and communication. It was fast paced, fun, and there was a lot of shouting (in the best way). I’ve included some pictures below (the one with the boxes is a voluntary prayer over the food that we packed).
I don’t want to recap the Totem Pole here, but there are a couple of upcoming events that I want to highlight.
- Fish Fry – I believe (as of today) we have enough participants. This is for our chartering org so it’s an important one for us. They boys will get food there.
- Planning Trip – This is a mandatory activity as it sets the planning for the year. We have a secret destination that the adults (bears) have planned for the boys. I’m super excited about this years destination.
As previously mentioned, council has presented us with some new technology that we are in the process of adopting. This is going to be a change, but on net a good one. I’m going to start sending invites out to you and I believe it will help not only see what we have going on, but offer some transparency into what the boys need to do to advance in the troop (something that I personally have struggled with). If you would like to add your son (we have set it up so that it is your choice) you simply need to go into their profile and add their email address. We are looking for feedback on this tool, so thanks in advance for your candor.
Yours in Scouting,
