Path to Eagle Meeting

Please see email below. Scouts who have started or plan to start, or have started, working towards Eagle Scout should attend this meeting.

The meeting is open to parents and scouts. We request that scouts attend and invite a parent.

Boards of Review

The final step for any scout to advance in rank is an interview with a board of review made of 3 parents. We have 14 scouts ready to advance on Oct 24. But, if we do not have enough parents to staff the boards, some may not advance. If your son is scheduled for a board of review, we expect one parent to be there to help. Please confirm with advancement.troop1011@gmail.com.

Advancement Notes

Our next advancement night is Monday, 10/24. For Scouts to advance, requirements and skills reviews must be completed by 10/17.

If you are ready for advancement or have questions about your status, please contact Mrs. Sullivan at

advancement.troop1011@gmail.com

We’ll work with Mrs. Bailey to get your skills review scheduled.

Conservation Weekend offers the opportunity to earn up to 3 merit badges over the course of less than two full days. Plus, you’ll get the opportunity to camp in the crisp autumn air in North Georgia with you troop. Meals are provided at the camp — so you don’t have to cook.

Eagle Merit badge for Sustainability or Environmental Science is available.

This event includes a conservation-themed workshop with games and information on how to create, execute and document a conservation project.

Service Project – Collecting Old towels

Troop 1011 will be collecting old towels and donating them to Pet Shelters around East Cobb. We will begin collecting them every Monday night at the 1011 Scout Hut from September 3rd to October 3rd. A collection box will be located inside the 1011 Scout Hut.

If you are interested in earning service hours for old towel collections, you can talk to Mr. Flowers about doing a large collection around your neighborhood.

If you have any questions please email me or ask at the next meeting.
