Scout Troop Meetings Going Virtual Again
Unfortunately, the community spread of COVID-19 has increased in Boone County to the point where the county has entered the Red status as reported by the Northern KY Health Department. The current guidance by the Dan Beard Council is that once in the Red status for KY that the units move all interactions to online. This means that the Troop meeting coming up this Sunday will shift back to being an Online meeting.
In regards to the campout that is scheduled for Nov 13th-15th, we will make an announcement at the Troop Meeting as to what will happen and it will be based on the status Boone County is in. We have options for an in-person campout, a fully virtual campout, or even a hybrid of some kind.

We will be retrieving the flags from the cemetery on Tuesday, Nov 17th. The time is at 4:30 PM sharp! Please come as a family again, just like during posting. Retrieval often is faster than posting, so make sure to show up a couple of minutes early if you can.
PLC Meeting on Nov 18th
Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday the PLC have decided to have their monthly meeting on Wednesday, November 18th. It will be at 6 PM and be held over Zoom. The meeting invite will go out to the PLC via the SPL.
It’s Recharter time, so please take a moment to complete the Recharter form and let us know if your scout is coming back in 2021 or not. Payments are due by Dec 1st unless you make other arrangements. Even if you complete the Recharter form your scout will not be added to the roster unless the dues are also taken care of.
This has been a hard year for all of us. Please do not allow financial hardships cause your scout to miss out on the Scouting program. If the dues are an issue, please reach out to Mr. Wood or the Treasurer and we will ensure we make arrangements.
