Troop 204 Improves it's Communication
||We are continuing to improve our communication
skills and we have come a long way from the Morse Code that used to
be required for First Class Scout.
This web site will continue to provide information about the
Troop and will continue to be the longest term source of
information. Due to the limitations of web design and update, it
will continue to be updated by the webmasters,
Tim Shannon and
'official' Facebook page will be a source of immediate or timely
information and be a venue for our Patrols to post and share
information about and within their Patrol. All posts will be
monitored for both content and Scouting values and appropriateness.
We encourage posts about Scouting and Troop 204 by all members both
youth and adult.
We will continue to issue email blasts for all persons who
have provided a correct email address to the Troop. Make sure that
Donna has your email address to be included in this.
The Bear Patrol Leader has initiated a new Yahoo group that
all interested adults can join. This URL is
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Troop204BearPatrol/ . If you do
not have access contact Mike French or Tim Shannon.
If you have concerns about your younger Scout having access to
Facebook or he is not yet 13 years old, no problem. Our first recommendation is that Mom or Dad
have a Facebook account and be willing to relay information to your
Scout. If you have questions, please contact Tim Shannon.
Communication is at the minimum a two way media. Please let us
know your feelings and suggestions about this new addition to our
Merit Badge Tip:
If you want to meet with a Merit Badge counselor at a
Tuesday night Scout Meeting, do not just walk up to the counselor during the
meeting. Meetings are Troop time and your Patrol probably needs your focus.
Instead plan ahead and possibly arrange to meet the counselor before
pre-opening. You can contact your Merit Badge Counselor in advance by phone,
email, or seeing him/her at a prior Scouting activity. If your counselor is at the Troop meeting, that is a good time
to arrange for other Merit Badge activities such as getting together to
launch a rocket for Space Exploration Merit Badge.
Be sure to take advantage of the on line leadership
training opportunities. From the comfort of your home computer you can take
Youth Protection Training, Boy Scout Leader Fast Start, Safety Afloat, Safe
Swim Defense, Troop Committee Challenge and Hazardous Weather. Just go to
Click on the course you want to take and log in to your
account. After successfully completing the course, You can print out the
completion card. Be sure to show this to Tracy Ellis so it can be entered in
the Troop records.
If you do not already have an account, you will need to
create one. For this you will need your account number from the front of
your BSA membership card. If you don't have a membership card you need to
get registered with the Troop. See Donna Vinson to get the forms, and pay
your Scouter dues.
Remember every Scout
deserves a trained leader!
