Troop 370 Parent Meeting Minutes October 6, 2014
1 PLC Report: John R, SPL. Camporee this weekend. Planning for that tonight and then planning for Halloween Walk. Elections will be in November. PLC would welcome meeting ideas from parents.
2 Scoutmaster Report: Mike K, SM Would like to put agenda on calendar. Would like to have recruiting leads – one transfer and one recruit. He is recruiting in his neighborhood. Disappointed in how many Scouts showed up at Sunday’s event – no Scouts. Faith formation volunteering is an option for Scouts throughout the year. Also, would like to do tours, museum, etc.
