Committee Minutes
October 25, 2023

Meeting started at 7:00, went over the last month's meeting minutes. 


Jose explained that although Robert Stewart is doing the job of the scoutmaster, he is not the scoutmaster. We should share the role and not solely be dependent on him nor have the expectation that he will serve in this role. We do not want to inadvertently overwhelm anyone with these duties.


Outdoor Activities: We will depart Sat morning 10/.8 at 8am for Rainwater with 11 Scouts.

Our next backpacking/hiking campout is 11/12 at Big Hill Pond. Robert has begun preparing the scouts for this event.

December winter camp is TBD based on interest and parent participation.

It was determined that we will offer future financial assistance through a signature added in the weekly emails for those who reach out.


Religious award update: 11/18 2:30 religious emblem class will be at 4pm mass, followed by dinner. This will allow the requirements to be completed. Jana is planning an event for Scout Sunday - which will be attended in February on a Saturday night. We plan to honor and reflect on Kevin Rawson during this time, as well as present the Religious awards.
