Scoutmaster's Minute

by Jason Sutton

Happy Holidays! All of us at Troop 629 wish everyone a healthy and happy holiday season spent with family and friends!

In addition to relaxing from school and sports, hopefully you will have some time to try and finish out those Summer Camp merit badges! Use that down time riding in a car or plane, or just lying around the house, to finish reading the merit badge book, taking notes, and getting ready to meet with a counselor to sign it off. Your new year will start off with a bang by doing that and it will also help you stay motivated and keep you rolling along at a steady pace.

Our final meeting this year on December 17th will be the Holiday Party and “White Elephant” gift exchange. Scouts participate when they bring a wrapped new or gently used item costing less than $20 to re-gift/exchange with other Scouts.

Our annual Troop Tree Recycle Service Project is set for January 5th and all Scouts are welcome to participate. We meet in the SOUTH CAMPUS parking lot at 8AM and dress in RED Troop t-shirt and other items based on weather… gloves are always helpful. This is a great way to add some funds to your High Adventure account!

Our January outing is a sleep-in overnight at the Georgia Aquarium with some behind-the-scenes encounters. It is set for January 11th. With advanced reservations required, the due-date to register for this outing is our December 17th meeting – so please turn in your registration as soon as possible so we don’t have to cancel our reservations.

Remember that flyers for the above, and for all of our events, are posted on the Troop web site under the “Events” tab and copies are on the table in the back of the room at our weekly meetings.
