Happy Thanksgiving

Posted on Nov 24 2015 - 8:04am

As We Give Thanks...

This week we celebrate all for which we are thankful. Our faith, good health, family, friends, peace and a myriad of other things come to mind while we are giving thanks. We would like to add one more thing for which to give thanks: Our youth leaders.

These young men are asked to lead a large group of boys. Parents know first hand how hard it is to lead a family, let alone a group of boys excited about the opportunities that Boy Scouts offers. It is not an easy task to lead such a large group. Nor is it an easy task to lead even a small group like a patrol. Leadership is a learning process; many times you have to fail several times until the lesson is learned. Often times "good leadership" is not the issue, being a "good follower" is.

So we ask that during your Thanksgiving celebrations this week, families take the time to discuss what it means to be a good follower. How can your Scout work to become a better follower, for it is through being a good follower that we understand what being a good leader is all about. Once your Scout learns to be a good follower, the path to being a good leader is much easier.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving week!

TFC Homework From Last Meeting

There are two homework assignments for TFC Scouts from our November 15th meeting. You can find the homework documents here.

Requirement 9b: Please review the document regarding the "three R's". We will set up a time at the TFC meeting during the PLC meeting on 11/23 to review this material.

Requirement 10: The intent of this requirement is to have Scouts meet with their parents, agree on a set of chores to perform over a 4-5 week period, agree on an amount of money the Scout will earn for each chore and then track the chores performed and money earned. Scouts must save 50% of what they have earned.
