Community Night Out – Aug 2 (TBC)- We would like to host a table at this Community Park Pool event. This is a great vehicle for Silver and Gold Awards to get out reach. Troops can also use it for their Journey Take Action or Bronze Award. A Troop can also host a crafting event that we can use for recruiting. We have supplies and instructions. Contact Barbara T if you are interested in hosting this – email@example.com
Open Jobs for next year –
QSP/Nuts – Troops get to keep 10-15% of sales depending on level. If anyone wants to participate, we need a coordinator. It is easy to manage as we have only 4-5 Troops participating. Otherwise we will not participate next fall.
McCaffrey’s Receipts – Troop can keep half of proceeds. This is a good way for a parent to participate on their own time. Interested Troops should contact Barbara Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org
Leader’s Meetings -
We will be conducting a survey to make the Leader’s meetings more accessible and useful to improve attendance. Please participate and give us your perspective.
NEXT MEETING: Leaders Party Thursday June 16th 7 pm Karen Freundlich's home, 9 Stanford Place
