Troop 493 Planning Meeting for 2018 Monday, January 22, 2018, 7 pm Schaumburg Main Library, Conference Room

Portillo’s Troop 493 Dine to Donate – Monday January 22, 2018 5-8pm 950 S. Barrington Rd. Streamwood, IL Please bring flyer below: http://troop493.nwsc.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/1-22-Troop-1.jpg

*We are in need of a volunteer to manage the money and   paperwork for Napowan Summer Camp. Please talk to Kim Haywood, khywd5@comcast.com or Lisa Garig, lbuttong@aol.com  

*Need Assistant Scoutmasters. Please talk to one of our Scout Masters.

To fulfill obligations to the troop, the Scoutmaster, with the assistance of the troop committee, recruits assistant Scoutmasters to help operate the troop. Each assistant Scoutmaster is assigned specific program duties and reports to the Scoutmaster. They also provide the required two-deep leadership standard set by the Boy Scouts of America. An assistant Scoutmaster may be 18 years old, but at least one in each troop should be 21 or older, so he or she can serve in the Scoutmaster’s absence.
