Troop Meeting and Ski Day

Posted by eriggert on Jan 19 2020 - 10:32am

At the PLC the Scouts decided to move the troop meeting from January 20th to January 27th to give everybody more time to study for Finals.

Good luck on Finals!

Congratulations, Hunter and Gil!

Over the weekend, Hunter and Gil and I attended the Fall Ordeal for the Order of the Arrow at Lost Valley.  There were about 40 candidates in all.  Everybody completed their service, and we had two nights of interesting camping!  Friday we slept under the stars, and it got windy and misty.  Saturday we had the option to use tents, which was a good thing because the wind blew harder and it rained most of the night.  But, everybody made it through OK!

Hunter completed his Ordeal and Gil earned Brotherhood.  Gil also helped out with ceremonies for the weekend, which was unexpected, but he did a great job.

Thank you to Mrs. Serdinsky for driving the bunch of us out there and picking us up - it's quite a long round trip (x2)!

At about 8:40 this evening, Joshua Riggert became Eagle Scout #54 for Troop 623.  Congratulations!

A special thank you to Mr. O'Connor, who stepped in to represent me as Scoutmaster, since I was parent of the candidate this evening and could not be in the board.  Also, thank you to Mr. Nieblas, Mrs. Bailey, and Mrs. Baker for coming out this evening to volunteer to sit on the board with members of the District.
