PLC Meeting. Service Patrol: Leadership Patrol

No Meeting - Holiday Break - No School

All meetings officially start at 7:30 p.m. in the Carriage House at Jesse Lee, unless otherwise specified. With the return of regular meetings, the PLC voted to reintroduce two previous practices from our pre-Covid era:
- Service Patrol: 15 Minutes before the meeting, a patrol will be responsible for opening the QM, collecting the flags and stands, setting up the Carriage House for the meeting. At the close of the meeting, the same patrol will be responsible for putting the flags and stands back in the QM, sweeping the floor and making sure the Carriage House is as neat and clean as we found it (Leave no Trace principles). The patrol responsible will rotate from a fixed list every week.
- Games: 15 Minutes before the meeting, scouts can show up to play group games. This is not required, but the scouts have loved doing this in the past.

Wreath Sales
To help fund our fun activities, we raise money every year by selling holiday wreaths and pine roping. Please read and download the overview of the fundraiser; it's a .pdf presentation.  And you can download sales forms for the wreaths and roping that you sell.  For an overview of this important fundraiser, please check out our dedicated web site.  If you have questions, please contact Mr. Mooney, the fundraising coordinator and troop treasurer.


Troop 76 Registration - Mandatory
Every scout MUST complete the annual troop registration at the beginning of the scout year.  Easy to complete on line as soon as possible.

Covid-19 and the Troop
In addition to state guidelines, the Town of Ridgefield requires masks indoors in public places for the unvaccinated.  Troop leadership developed a set of guidelines for us to follow which allow our scouts and parents to stay safe during our camping and service events.  Please review the troop guidelines by clicking on the link near the top of the left column.

The Troop wants everyone to understand that participation in these in-person activities is completely voluntary and scouts are not required to attend any in-person events.  This is a personal family decision which Troop 76 respects.  We will continue offering virtual gatherings for those scouts who are more comfortable with limited social interaction.

We are hoping these options offer our scouts ways to remain engaged with one another.  Troop 76 leadership is incredibly proud of the work our troop has done during these last three months, we have still been able to come together and offer a scouting program that encourages personal growth and advancement.  BSA and Troop 76 are dedicated to giving Scouts a strong and meaningful program during a pandemic.

Financial Assistance
If a scout family is in need of financial assistance at any time, please contact Troop Committee Chair Yvette Thompson.  All financial assistance requests are kept strictly confidential.

 

 
Merit Badge Counselors Needed
Our troop needs parents to become Merit Badge Counselors to help scouts earn merit badges.  Most needed is Environmental Science but please go to the merit badge page and please let us know if you're interested in another badge.  There are many many other badges as well.  If you have any interest in becoming a Merit Badge Counselor, please reach out to Ms. Chris Sullivan.
