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 –

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

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
