Troop 458 is back from the summer. We never officially took a break, but since returning from Kia Kima, we have been low key.  Now it’s back to 7:00 starts and Class A uniforms.

Most of you know already, but I have taken over as Scout Master and Mr. Anderson will continue helping Troop 458 as an Assistant. Glenn will be in charge of advancement and advancement tracking.  A role I am very grateful he has taken on. George Harvell will use his many years of experience to continue teaching Scouting skills.  Jonathon Cannon will help with the development of leadership skills while ensuring we have fun.

The adult leaders are now:

Scout Master-James Pitcock (901) 848-3574

Assistant-Glenn Anderson (901) 634-4584

Assistant-George Harvell (901) 674-7007

Assistant-Jonathon Cannon (901) 517-5284

Last Tuesday, the Scouts spent the entire meeting planning our next six months worth of meetings and a full year of outings. I felt you all would like to know our future plans.

The Scouts decided to keep the meeting format the same. The meetings will be run by the Senior Patrol Leader and the Merit Badge Instructor.

The Troop Adult Committee met last week and are anxious to help in anyway needed. They have been invited to the Court of Honor and I hope they will attend.

The Court of Honor is scheduled for Tuesday September 11th at 7:00. It would be fun if people brought some dishes for a pot luck dessert party. (Details to follow)

If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, feel free to call me or come to a meeting and talk. The goal is for the Scouts to learn leadership and scouting skills while having fun.

Thank you,

James Pitcock
