We need Assistant Scoutmasters
The troop is
asking adults to become
Assistant Scoutmasters (ASM's) so that we have adequate scout
supervision and assistance at meetings and trips. ASMs aren't
required to camp out or attend every Tuesday meeting. What's most
important is a commitment to help our troop remain successful.
While we strive for a scout led troop, the reality is that Troop 76
can't offer a strong scouting program without adult volunteers.
scouts...your sons...become successful, independent and morally strong adults.

said the experience made them better parents.
adequate adult coverage, the troop faces the possibility of cutting
back on the fun events and trips. Please get involved. Take the first step by contacting
Committee Chair Jodie Francis.
