First Year Trainer Needed

Posted by shawn.ovenden on Nov 12 2019 - 4:00pm

Mr. Krause has requested that we find a replacement when our new group of Scouts join in 2020. We appreciate all of the time Mr. Krause has dedicated to Troop 558 for numerous years. The role we need to fill is imperative to our First Year Program and it would be ideal that a parent or parents take this on. This has worked even when a parent has a scout in the first year program. Please speak to Mr. McLaughlin if interested. 

ALL ADULTS - Please read if Rechartering with Troop 558!!!!

Posted by shawn.ovenden on Nov 12 2019 - 4:00pm

The BSA is requiring that ALL ADULTS must sign and return a Background Check and Disclosure Form prior to Rechartering. Many may have already received this in an email last week from the BSA. Mr. Crom CANNOT RECHARTER you until it is signed and returned. You can print at home from your email and bring to the meeting. This is past due.

Attention all Life Scouts, Star Scouts and their Parents:

Former Scoutmasters, Mr. Doug Klug and Mr. Shawn Ovenden, will meet with Life Scouts/Star Scouts and their Parents on Monday, November 18th during the meeting to discuss next steps towards the rank of Eagle Scout. Come prepared with questions about how to complete Merit Badges, how to start and apply for your Eagle Scout Project and the timeline involved.

Eagle Co Chair Contact

Posted by shawn.ovenden on Nov 12 2019 - 3:59pm

Eagle Co-Chair: Eric Lowe  iron.horse.eagle@gmail.com

You must contact this gentleman to set up your Eagle Scout Project approval once you have gotten signatures from all involved.  This is meant to be done only by the Life Scout and not a parent.  You would email Mr Lowe to arrange meetings to discuss Projects and have applications approved once signed by the Committee Chair and Scoutmaster. **** No paperwork for the Eagle Rank can move forward without approval and signatures from Mr. McLaughlin and Mr. Crom!! ****
