Hello Troop 12 Montclair!
This Week’s Meeting will be held upstairs.
It will be the last chance for Scouts to get their Advancements completed before the Court of Honor on the 10th of February! If you are ready with your requirements and need a Board of Review and Scoutmaster Conference, please email Sam Joslyn before Friday’s meeting.
Tomorrow will also be the last chance to hand-in Merit Badge blue cards and get final sign-offs before the Court of Honor.
We will be participating in services at The Episcopal Church of St. James as part of Scout Sunday. Scout Sunday is an annual Scout event where we show our appreciation to St. James for the support they give us. Due to scheduling, we will celebrate Scout Sunday at St. James a week earlier than other Scout Troops (more info on the National Scout Sunday can be found here). Scouts are encouraged to come and participate in the service in full uniform (that means Merit Badge sashes too) and afterward, we host the Coffee Hour and meet with other members of the St. James Community. Scouts and Scouters who will attend should email back so we can plan accordingly.
Summer Camp is Coming!
Troop 12 will be at Camp Keowa at 10 Mile River BSA Camp this year from July 9th to 15th. We had an information session last week during the troop meeting. Here are some links in case there are further questions:
