It is no secret that troop 241 needs some additional adults to help.  But how is the best way to get someone to volunteer????? Let them see you having fun

Ever read Tom Sawyer? Remember how Tom got his friends to whitewash the picket fence. He made the job seem enjoyable. The difference for t241 is that we are not actually asking people to do our work for us – but to do a job that will provide a better program and experience for their kids.

Some units call it “Parents and Leader Meeting” and others call it “Parents Adults Leaders Meetings” but either way scouting calls it PALMs.  

Parents here is something to do

Are your 2019 Goals "Smart"?

Here’s an old Boy’s Life joke:
How can you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time!

How can you fulfill a vision? One goal at a time.

New year is a great time to plan your advancement

Advancement Requires Mentorship.


Your advancement is not a competition. Rather, it is a joint effort involving the leaders, the members, other volunteers such as merit badge counselors or mentors, and your family. Though much is done individually at your own pace, scouts often work together in groups to focus on achievements and electives. As you do this, we must recognize each scouts combination of strengths and weaknesses. As watchful leaders, either adult or youth,we lend assistance as called for and encourage members to help each other according to their abilities

From Cub Scouting through Venturing and Sea Scouts, we put the methods to work. Together they lead to mission fulfillment. For example, Scouting ideals, put forth in the timeless instruments of the Scout Oath and Scout Law, represent the most basic method. Moving on, we know young people want to belong to groups. Throughout the Scouting program, we provide a place where the sense of belonging is an outcome of practicing skills, exploring interests, learning values, forming friendships, and enjoying adventure. Associations within families and with a variety of adults are critical methods too, especially in terms of providing support and recognition and in developing mutual respect.
