Other Items to Note:

· Several virtual merit badges are available on the Chickasaw Council calendar. Visit this site regularly to review the ones offered and register. The Scout needs approval from Scoutmaster Issing (call his home number) to begin the merit badge. Space is limited, so act quickly if you would like to register.


· Interesting article on The Congressional Award for youth – many Scouting activities overlap with these requirements, but you must register (nothing before you register counts):


· All Troop 48 in-person activities are cancelled until the church informs us that we can return. The troop is meeting virtually on Tuesdays, so watch your emails for the WebEx links.


· A message from Ken Allen from the Chickasaw Council: We are putting together our fall recruiting plan for the coming year and are looking for everyone who has a special connection with the schools we serve.  Are you, or anyone you know on the PTO for any of our schools?  Do you ever help with things like final bell logistics?  Do you know the principal well?  We want to provide them better service…. and we could use your help to understand the best ways to do so.
