Even for me, who grew up in this area, it is a little hard for me to comprehend that it was over 70 degrees last weekend and today there is snow in the ground. We went round and round, trying to figure out a good way for the camping/horseback riding trip to happen, but at the end of the day, the weather was just too extreme. A special call out to Brendan Mulvaney, who while on travel was the liaison to the facility and was writing emails literally in the airport and as he was boarding a plane!
We WILL reschedule this event and hopefully have better weather next time!
IN PERSON MEETING:
We will have an in-person meeting Monday at 7:30 at Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill.
Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill– Parish Hall
3606 Seminary Rd, Alexandria, VA 22304
The parish hall is behind the main sanctuary, from the parking lot, just keep walking around on the sidewalk and you will see the entrance up the hill a bit.
There is a PLC this Monday at 7:00. Senior Patrol Leaders, Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders, and Patrol Leaders (or Assistant Pratol leaders if the PL is unavailable) should plan on attending.
The two primary goals for the meeting are:
· Review the upcoming troop meetings through the end of the school year- and the goals for each of those.
· Start to plan the major weekend outings for the Summer and Fall.
The Merit badge registration opens on March 31st, and we want to get the scouts into the system well before that time. In this way, we have a fighting chance to get them the activities they want as some of the favorites; shooting sports, aquatics, first aid, etc. fill up very quickly.
