Boston Butts 2020 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you did not pick up your forms last night, please email Ms. Herald to register for selling.

We are excited to kick off this year's selling season for our annual Scout fundraiser.

Attached are this year's forms and you'll notice some changes.  In order to streamline our event, make it easier for our Scouts and leaders to keep up with the paperwork, and ultimately put more money in our Scouts' accounts, the team has developed some new forms for you to use.

New Month, New Focus: A Scout Is...

Thrifty

This month's Point of Law is a great one to apply in many areas of our day to day life.

Thrifty Scouts look for ways to save money.  It could be not spending on some items that we can do without.  How about applying the lessons learned in your Second Class Rank, as well as Personal Management and Family Life Merit Badges?  Thrifty even applies to other elements like Leave No Trace and the Outdoor Code.  

September is a great month to practice another element of Thrifty and that is the ability to earn your own money for your scout activities.  Camping, High Adventure, and several other troop activities require money and this month, we will be kicking off our annual Boston Butt fundraiser.  This is your chance to earn money for your scout account.  We'll have more details coming soon about how to sell, timing for the event, and all the fun that comes along with it.

What can you do this month to earn money, save more, and spend less?

The Ten Essentials

Posted by rtownsend on Aug 28 2020 - 12:19pm

Tuesdays night's meeting is all about The Ten Essentials.  You've heard the term.  Now it's time to get yours together and make sure you are always ready for adventure.

One of the best ways to "Be Prepared" is to use your resources.  Below is a link to the BSA's Official Ten Essentials.

One of the items listed is your personal First Aid Kit.  You'll find the details for what you need in your kit in your Scout Handbook or listed in the link below.

Be sure to include a copy of your Medical Forms A & B in your kit.

On Tuesday, scouts will be reviewing each other's essentials, demonstrating the use of some of the items, and possibly completing a patrol challenge or two.

New Month, New Focus

A Scout is Cheerful.

What does being cheerful mean to you?  Does it mean that you are always smiling and happy?  Does it mean that you never get disappointed or upset?  The dictionary defines cheerful as "noticeably happy and optimistic" or "causing happiness by its nature or appearance".  

We may not always be smiling but we can certainly be optimistic or help others with our attitude.

This month, take the time to think about how you can help someone else be cheerful.
