Troop 493 Tidbits     

April 23, 2018

** Troop committee meeting Monday April 23rd at the Grubb’s home: 118 Paxton, Schaumburg

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

*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.  

Class “B” red t-shirt orders sheets will be available at the Wednesdaymeeting April 25th. Order form:

Once order is placed it will be approximately 2 weeks until delivery.

Money is due on delivery or at time of order. Will have some sample plain t-shirts available for sizing  

Please remember to bring your Scout books and wear your Class A shirts to every meeting.
