That was my reaction and I agree with you 100%, but...
Page 157 of the new SM Handbook states that the responsibilities of the
troop committee include: "Develop community service projects." I believe
this was written in error. The Troop Committee Guidebook leaves service
projects out of it's similar listing of responsibilities on page 13.
To me, service projects are an integral part of the Scouting program and the
committee has no direct role, other than to support the PLC and the SM.
