Scouts and Parents,
We have very little participation in the Veteran’s Day Parade and Flags. These are both tremendous opportunities for our scouts and I’d hate to see them wasted.
Veteran’s Day Parade: The first one is to provide gratitude to the Special Forces Veterans and walk down the street with some of the world’s finest! They asked our Troop to walk with them and that is a huge honor. Right now I only see 4 scouts signed up! We can do better that that! Please go to the Sign Up Genius Link that I sent you and sign up! The details for the parade will be at the bottom of the email.
Flags: We still need volunteers for flags. This is a great opportunity to offset your costs to all our activities and instill some pride by putting out American Flags. We still need 3 Scouts in the morning, 5 Scouts in the afternoon and 3 navigators in the afternoon. This is a really hard task to accomplish when we are lacking participation. The Rotary Club is going to talk to us about flags tonight because we have been so short on scouts that we have not been able to properly execute this duty and we risk loosing this opportunity. Also, for scouts to be considered for Scholarship opportunities for summer camp and such, they must participate in Flags. Please go to Sign up genius and volunteer! The SPL will call everyone over the next two days to confirm or solicit participation.
Thank you! I know the 5th will be a busy day but rewarding day. With teamwork we can accomplish it and be very proud of our contribution to the community and our veterans!!
Meeting tonight at 7pm, Dino Death Prep, Committee Meeting, Rotary Club Talk about Flags, and possible a Scout Master Conference. I need max participation, I encourage parents to attend the committee meeting and we need at least 5 ASM’s at tonight’s meeting to help get all this done.
Also, if you are not getting the sign up genius emails for all these activities then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add your email address.
