Links to Practice the Scout Rank Knots

Hi All,
As we discussed in the Break out Room tonight, those who are trying to earn the Rank of Scout should practice their knots.  Some could develop frayed nerves trying to practice Knots, whipping and fusing, but that is why we need them.

Scouting for Food, Please Help!

Posted on Apr 24 2020 - 10:17pm

It is Scouting For Food time again!  The St John Food Pantry needs our help!  They served 135 families last week, an increase from 80 families prior to the pandemic.  In keeping with the stay-at-home order, boy scouts will do things slightly differently this year.  Instead of going door to door personally collecting food donations, GET CREATIVE in safely telling family, friends, and neighbors to directly donate to St John Food Pantry!  Consider posting a sign in your driveway for those walkers on your street.  Send an email to your friends and family.  Post an announcement on your social media.  Write some postcards and send through postal mail.  **A scout is helpful and kind**
