Troop 118 Elections

The SPL Election will be Monday, February 2nd. Three Scouts have put their names in and will give their speeches to the Troop. Please attend so you can have input in your new Senior Patrol Leader.

On February 9th, we will have Patrol elections, and work on filling the other leadership roles. Some of the special positions are: Den Chief, Quartermaster, Chaplain’s Aide, Librarian, Historian, and Scribe. Some others we’d like to fill are: Leave No Trace Coordinator, Webmaster, and Bugler. That’s right, Bugler. Please see your SPL and Scoutmaster if you are interested in filling any of these Leadership roles.


Crossover will be Friday, February 6th at the Cubs Blue & Gold Banquet. Any Boy Scouts that are interested in coming, and if there are Scouts who want to wear Tribal attire and/or volunteer to help with the ceremony please see Mr. Swartz, Mr. Safley or Mr. Lisac.
