April 1, 2020 – No Jokes Here – COVID-19 & More

Welcome to April – we hope all of you are doing well with the current situation. We certainly know it can be difficult for those working and helping their kids with school, but together we can hopefully flatten the curve as they say and get back to normal.
 
Mr. Waxman has been sending out useful information with regard to keeping scouting going during this Pandemic. With approval from the NNJC we are able to perform Scoutmaster conferences and Board of Reviews via ZOOM and other video methods.
 
Scouts please contact your Patrol leader for advancements and sign offs. Patrols are meeting via Zoom for virtual meetings.
 
Don’t forget the Troop is still doing the sneaker & hiking boots service project. Save those sneakers and hiking boots
 
See recent e-mails from Mr. Waxman for the Merit Badge Counselor List.
 
If you have any questions feel free to contact Mr. Waxman or Mr. Grewal.

Welcome to Our New Website!!!

Parents & Scout welcome to our new website!

Mr. Melhorn & Mr. Covan have been working on the new Troop 12 website for several months and after meeting with the Committee on March 4 have now gone live!!

There are some great new features on this site, one of the biggest being that the site is now computer and mobile browser compatible.

Also is the addition to a Google Calendar under Meetings & Events tab. This allows the user to subscribe to the calendar and now keep up to date with Troop 12 events right on their phones and calendars.

We will be adding links to permissions slips on the events as well, though they will be available under the Permission Slips tab as well.

If you have any questions of feedback please click here to e-mail the webmaster and as soon as possible.

We hope you like and enjoy the new site!
