Troop 493 Tidbits 

February 13, 2018 

 

February 19, 2018 – Committee Meeting at the Grubb home – 118 Paxton, Schaumburg – all parents are welcome 

*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.
