What an offer, eh! I hope the "catchy" subject line didn't put
My Wood Badge ticket includes at least four items with which I
need your help -
(1) Helping the Scribe create a true monthly Troop Newsletter,
as distinct from but incorporating the thing the CC puts out to
parents 2-3 times a year. If you can send me a sample of your
Troop's newsletter (Email or snailmail) and let me know what
software you use on it, I will send you one of our first issues;
(2) Helping the Librarian create a Troop Resource Center in
place of the ammo box of old merit badge booklets we have now.
The resource center would include collections of various useful
books, pamphlets, maps, etc. on subjects of interest to Scouts
and Scouters; Woods Wisdom; equipment information; activity info
(places to go, things to do); how-to guides; and so on. If you
have any suggestions on how to physically organize this and/or
run a checkout system, they would be appreciated;
(3) Creating a brochure for prospective new Scouts and for
Webelos considering the Troop. The samples and examples you have
would be very helpful; and,
(4) Creating a Troop Handbook. I would like to rip off the best
ideas from Troops that already have one (imitation is the
sincerest form of flattery <g>). Again, Email or snailmail a
copy of yours and I will return the favor. You may find a few
ideas in ours that you can use!
Troops on the Web - I have just hit all the Troop Home Pages
listed on US Scouting Service (HIWAAY, etc.) and on the Berkeley
Troop 24 resource page, so I have your web-posted samples -
thanks a lot. And, Cliff Golden, I have your great quarterly
newsletter so you needn't send it again (I still owe you one of
ours when we get it done).
