Congratulations Ryan on becoming the new lodge chief of Pachachaug Lodge 525!
Held each year to recognize those who have gone above and beyond in service as well as to celebrate the incoming and outgoing Lodge Executive Board.
Here are the latest SMC Scores. It’s still very close for all the patrols.
The bottom groupings reflect leaders in certain categories. Ties are reflected by two or more patrols showing the same category.
Come out to the Veteran’s Day Parade and earn more points for your patrol!
Remember, the winning patrol will earn the coveted Water Buffalo Trophy!
Today I heard from a local resident, that a scout representing Troop 37 came to their door soliciting for money. We’re not sure if this “scout” was really from Troop 37, but the official position of the Boy Scouts of America is,
“At no time are units permitted to solicit contributions for the unit or their programs.”
The Boy Scouts of America has provided long-standing guidelines on permissible fundraising activities for its units. These guidelines are intended to clearly define to the Scouting community and the community at large the role in fundraising of the National Organization, Local Councils and Units. These guidelines are based on the Charter and Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of the Boy Scouts of America and in compliance with IRS regulations related to nonprofit organizations. They are reviewed on a regular basis by committees of the National Executive Board as the fundraising environment is constantly changing.
