1)  WEAR MASKS!  Please do not come to the meeting without one.  You will not be able to stay at the meeting without a mask!

2)  BE WELL!  if you have a fever, cough, or show any signs of being sick, do not come to the meeting.  Be ultra careful!

3)  BE PREPARED!  It’s summer in DC – so be prepared for bugs and thunderstorms.  This will be an outdoor meeting and we will not go into the Church.  We will have drinking water available.

4)  WEAR YOUR UNIFORM – Class A Field Uniforms.  No neckerchiefs are required during the summer months.

Bring Headlamps!  It’s getting dark earlier and they are needed!

Wood Chopping:
It looks like our in person meetings will be held outside for quite some time, so in true scouting manner we will prepare!  At the Troop Meeting, we’ll be chopping and sorting dead wood for weekly campfires
If you have loppers, camp saws, bow saws, etc, this would be a great time to try them out!

We will Honor Thomas Haymes on Monday August 24 at the beginning of the Troop meeting.  Please join us for light refreshments and to honor Thomas for his achievements and contributions to the Troop.
