Adult Volunteers Needed for Eagle Board of Review 6/16/22

I am in need of 3-4 adults to sit on an Eagle Board of Review on Thursday, June 16 at 7:00 PM at the Riverside Presbyterian Church. Current Eagle Scouts who are 18 are encouraged to volunteer.  Sitting on an Eagle Board is a very rewarding opportunity to be a part of a Scout’s final step to achieving the rank of Eagle. No experience is necessary.  If you have not sat on an Eagle Board previously I can provide you with resources to familiarize yourself with topics that are discussed at the Board.  Additionally, the Board is run by our Council Representative. The time commitment is approximately 1-1 1/2 hrs.  Wearing a mask is recommended.

If you are available to help please RSVP by email me at dmgmitro@aol.com.

Thank you,

Dawn Gmitro
Troop 24 Eagle Committee

Swim Tests TONIGHT at 7:30 pm

*We have several posts today so please be sure to read to the end.*

All scouts attending summer camp at Tesomas and adults attending Tesomas who intend to boat or swim should plan to take the Boy Scout swim test. The swim test is required every year, not just for new scouts. You should take the test UNLESS you completed the Swimming Merit Badge in 2022. Scouts and adults attending the Lake Michigan sailing trip or boating in Kankakee should also take the swim test prior to the trip.

The swim test will be offered for Troop 24 members at the Pav YMCA (in Berwyn) on the following dates:

Wednesday, June 8th at 7:30 pm – sign up HERE
Wednesday, June 22nd at 7:30 pm – sign up HEREe
Friday, June 24th at 7:30 pm – sign up HERE

Scouts will need to bring swim trunks, swim goggles (recommended) and a towel. There is no fee for the Swim Test and you will not need to purchase a YMCA guest pass.

If you do not attend one of these test dates, you will be asked to take the test upon arrival at Camp Tesomas or you will be designated a non-swimmer.

Website Content Editors Needed

Hello,

As you may have heard, Troop 24 will be upgrading our website and moving to a new platform that is specifically designed for scout troops. We are very excited about this update and expect the new platform to be more user-friendly, easier to organize campouts and events, share pictures, etc. and hopefully it will be easier to find content.

Before we make the transition, all of the current data needs to be reviewed, edited and updated. This signup lists all of the pages on our current website as a separate line item so each can be signed up individually for review. Some of the pages are very short and some are longer and will require a complete overhaul. Please sign up to edit a few pages if you can.

In order to make this transition before the new year starts this fall, content needs to be edited and turned in by the end of this month. We are asking volunteers to copy and paste the wording from our existing website to a Microsoft Word, Google Doc or Apple Pages document, edit, add, delete, etc. and email the attachment to troop24events@gmail.com by June 30.

PLEASE ALSO feel free to send suggestions about how to reorder, combine or group pages or topics for consideration.

FYI, we will not take down the current website for at least a year after the transition has taken place. Thank you for your help!

Sign up here, thank you!
