Troop 777 Update on Activities and COVID-19

Post date: Mar 21, 2020 2:17:25 AM

Hello Troop 777,

In alignment with governmental guidance on COVID-19, we are suspending in-person troop meetings, patrol meetings, TLC (Troop Leadership Council) meetings, and any other in-person group functions until at least April 13th, 2020. We are investigating alternative ways of maintaining scouting activity and engagement, and will be planning online meetings. Our SPL, Matthew Shapiro, will be sending information out later this week on virtual activities for the troop.

We are working on ways scouts can experience scouting activities safely, including virtual Merit Badge work and Advancement (Rank Requirements sign-offs, Scoutmaster Conferences, Board of Reviews).

Although it is unfortunate to postpone our in-person activities for a time, Troop 777 will still be a community for scout and adult engagement. We would like remind scouting families of the Scout Oath and Scout Law in their efforts to respect and care for others during this trying time.

Best Regards to all our scouts and families,

John Lee, Ian Kirkwood, & Doug Stinson
