Scoutmaster's Minute
Jim Horvath

We are an active Troop! July was Summer Camp and Brad Mularcik’s Eagle Project. Both were great successes! Scouts earned over 80 Merit Badges at Summer Camp and some completed additional rank requirements. Both Summer Camp and Brad’s Eagle Project were great fun! In July we also marched in three parades; two on the 4th of July and the third one was as color guard for the Special Kids’ Soap Box Derby at Derby Downs.

Upcoming activities are Massillon Bike, Camp, Canoe Campout, deadline August 12; Ohiopyle Whitewater Rafting and the Buffalo Naval Park, both have commitment deadlines of August 31. We must know the actual number of Scouts and families that want to attend the Whitewater Rafting and the Naval Park so that we can try to add or drop reservations if necessary. Please email jhorvath99@aol.com with the count for your family attending each activity as soon as possible. If no one from your family will be attending an event, please email that information, too. Because the Troop takes off the last two Tuesdays in August, this communication is even more critical. Information sheets, permissions slips and waiver forms are available at the Troop meetings.

The Fall Court of Honor will be 4 p.m. Sunday, October 5. This is the largest Ceremony of the year due to the 100 or so Merit Badges earned at Summer Camp and elsewhere. We hold this COH on Sunday so that more families can attend without the conflicts on Tuesday evenings. Second Class Cooking is offered at August 5 and 12 Troop meetings. Email Mr. H. your menu ahead of time for required approval. Must meet the My Plate Nutrition requirements. (See Handbook)

Ohiopyle Pa. White Water Rafting Family Event

Scouts and siblings must meet age/weight requirements.
