Hello, I hope all continues to be well with everyone during this pandemic! With this said, I continue to encourage the scouts to work on rank advancement and merit badges. If you need a board of review, please reach out to me. There are several online events coming up in the next couple of days that I hope you can all join in on. Please see below:
The first is that I will be hosting a zoom meeting for all the scouts tomorrow night at 7:30 pm. The meeting code is 593-845-8299 password is 7Ugysi
Next , At 6:00 pm tomorrow evening- talented and dedicated members of the summer camp teams at Ten Mile River Scout Camps and John E. Reeves Cub World invite you to participate as they proudly present a GNYC Virtual Campfire. Tune in to see some of your camp favorites. The link is www.nycscouting.org/live
Also, on Saturday May 2nd, beginning at 11:00 am the National Boy Scouts of America will be hosting a Camp-in on Facebook live. From friendly competitions to campfire singalongs, this virtual event will bring the best parts of Scouting to life with activities all can enjoy from their living room or backyard. https://www.facebook.com/theboyscoutsofamerica/
Summer Camp is still a go of right now. The early bird deadline has been extended to May 17th. Please let me know if you are planning on attending camp this summer and if your attending for one or two weeks. We will talk about payment in the coming weeks.
Finally, we will be having a committee meeting on Friday May 8th @ 7:30 pm via zoom conference. This will be the last committee meeting of the scouting year! Be on the lookout for details for that meeting from Pat.
I would also like to congratulate Jacob, who successfully passed his Star board of review last Friday night. Jacob was the first board done virtually. Congratulations Jacob.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Again, if I can be of any help or assistance during these trying times, please reach out.
Be Safe Everyone! I miss all of you! Hope to see/hear from you tomorrow night!
