A Big Thanks to Mr Lee!

Posted by godfreyc on Sep 8 2018 - 1:45am

At the recent Kickoff Picnic/Court of Honor, we (finally) honored our longest-serving Scoutmaster, Hanson Lee, for his years of service to the Troop and the Community.  From 1990 to 2017, Mr Lee held the position of Scoutmaster, overseeing a group of boys that some years, numbered as low as 10, while in other years, was as high as 43!  In all, well over 200 Scouts have spent time in the Troop with Mr Lee as Scoutmaster, and 50 of them them have earned the rank of Eagle Scout!

Troop Committee Chair Michael Nowosatko presented Mr Lee with a clock for his years of service as Scoutmaster.  We also took the opportunity to present him with a customized "Scoutmaster" patch, with the word "Emeritus" embroidered at the bottom.  Whether he chooses to wear that patch, or a stock Assistant Scoutmaster patch will be up to him, but that shoulder has been without a patch for too long.

I won't try to list all of the ways Mr Lee has contributed to the community outside of his position in the Troop, but the ones that come to mind to me include Order of the Arrow (OA) Chapter Advisor, National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) Course Director and Scoutmaster, Advisor for Venture Crew 1888, and he's already scheduled to head up next August's Wood Badge Course.

Schedule 2018-9

The PLC met today and produced a great framework schedule for the upcoming year.  If all goes as planned, the scouts who are not yet at first class should all be able to get to that rank by March 2019 at the latest.  We also settled the campout schedule until the next summer camp.  I think the PLC did a great job developing the program and it should be exciting to see them execute it.

We had a very productive week at summer camp!

We elected leadership positions for the upcoming year.  Nathan H will be the Senior Patrol Leader, and Huron T will be the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader.  New patrols were formed and patrol leaders selected.  All other Troop positions were filled.  

More Merit Badges!

Recently, Jett E completed the Personal Fitness Merit Badge and Rohith P completed Communications Merit Badge.  Way to go guys!

Mr Hachigian presented these Eagle Required Merit Badges to Jett and Rohith during last week's Troop Meeting at Leonard Elementary School.


Rohith P was also awarded the Music Merit Badge the prior week.  Is Rohith just getting caught up on Merit Badges or is he a force to be reckoned with going forward?  Only time will tell...
