Scoutmaster-Update
Outside Troop Meeting! 
The last troop meetings have been successful and safe!  Join us again at the FBC outside auditorium Monday night at 7:30-9:00 pm.
For those of you not familiar with the area, it is the “Additional Parking Area” past the cones, past the troop shed.  Scouts will walk from the front parking lot to the back area.  A few guidelines:
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 – It’s hung up in your closet, right?  It is NOT under your bed crumpled up by that bag of doritos your parents don’t know you have in your room.
Troop Tradition dictates that we do not wear neckerchiefs in the summer months!!
I will be out of town camping with my family, but SPL Heckel has it under control!
