2016 SPL Elections

We are looking for the next Senior Patrol Leader to lead the troop during the next 6 months through Bartle summer camp.

We will be holding the election at the scout meeting on December 19.

If a scout is interested, they must at least be of a Star rank and be prepared with answers to the following questions:

1. What is your name, rank, and how long have you been in the troop?
2. What makes you a good leader for Troop 459?
3. How will you increase interest in meetings and campouts?
4. What improvements will you make for the troop?
5. How will you help with rank advancements among scouts?
6. How will you increase turnout and recruit new scouters?

Congratulations to our new Eagle Scouts

We had a great Eagle Scout Court of Honor this weekend and recognized fourteen new Eagle Scouts. Our guest speaker was Congressman Kevin Yoder.  He gave a very inspiring speech about the values we hold dear and the necessity for each of us to give to our communities.  Thank you Congressman Yoder for joining us and helping make this a great celebration.

2016 Fall Eagle Court of Honor

Our Eagle Court of Honor is this Sunday, October 9, at 2:30 pm at the Colonial Quivira campus (where we normally have our Monday scout meetings). Fourteen boys will be recognized for attaining the pinnacle rank of scouting. This will be an important experience for the Eagle boys and their parents and guests, but would also be for all boys on the Trail yet to become Eagles!

To get an idea of the preparation behind this event, take a look at this Sign-up Genius page showing the responsibilities performed by this wonderful group of volunteers! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b48aaa923a31-eagle

We ask that all members of the troop attend in full Class A uniform to show support both for the new Eagles as well as the work of the volunteers!

Thank you,
Brian
