Thanks for your patience while we firmed up plans for the semester. We've been in a bit of a holding pattern waiting on new program materials to be released for the Woodlands Trail Unit, so we are bit behind the curve getting things kicked off. That said, we are ready to get things going and excited to be getting back into a regular routine! The following are important dates for everyone to make note of:
Monday, August 28, 2017 - Leaders' meeting
This gathering is for all the existing leaders (all registered adult leaders for the troop) AND any other dads who are not currently registered but interested in helping out with the troop. We need as many leaders as we can muster to make the program a success, so we ask all you dads to consider rolling up your sleeves and helping out. No prior "scouting" or camping experience required. We can use any of your talents and abilities! More details to follow this coming week.
SUNDAY, September 10, 2017 - Welcome Back Outdoor Activity
This is something new we are doing this year. We thought it would be fun to get as many of the boys, leaders, and dads together for a day of outdoor fun to welcome everyone back and get reacquainted. Our hope is to make this a fun annual tradition for the troop! More details will follow soon, but mark your calendars and make plans to attend this special event. If you have friends that may be interested in joining TLUSA, this would be a great way to get them introduced to the Trailmen, leaders, and other parents. Potential recruits are welcome!
Monday, September 18, 2017 - First Official Meeting
This will be our first official meeting of the school year. In usual fashion, it will be held at POPC in the gym from 6:15-7:30.
Remember that our regular meetings for the year will fall on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Monday nights throughout the school year, with a few selected breaks for major holidays. The troop-wide calendar will be posted soon, so stay tuned for more on this.
If you have any questions about the leaders' meeting, the welcome back activity, or the first meeting of the year, do not hesitate to give Troopmaster Brad Hatchett a call (601-832-4040), or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking to recruit new boys for the troop, so if you know anyone interested, please share this blog post with them. We will also be posting something on Facebook that you can share. If you haven't liked our facebook page (www.facebook.com/troopms1031).
