Update on Troop 61 Meetings & Activities

Leadership Positions Appointed

Please see the following Google Sheet for appointed positions.
These changes to leadership positions are effective immediately.

Virtual Campfire update

The virtual campfire is on FRIDAY, APRIL 10 at 20:00 (8 pm).

Leadership position update

After a discussion in the PLC meeting on April 5, 2020, PLC has decided to suspend all PL elections (PLs would continue doing their jobs) and move forward with appointed leadership positions.
As a result, I, ASPL, will prioritize those that are IN NEED of a leadership position first before moving on to those that aren’t.

If you are in need of a leadership position or have not been interviewed on February 27, 2020, please email me (Ethan) and Liam (SPL).

Thank you.

Update on April 1, 2020
