One item that is bothering the back of my mind - why is the CO no longer
interested in the Troop? It may be that the Troop has failed to prove its
value to the CO - like anyone else, COs like to know that those they are
helping appreciate them. If the CO is a church - the Troop participating in
church work-days or having their own work-day for the church is a wonderful
way of giving back. Have Eagle projects that help the CO; in newspaper

on; have special ceremonies presenting the Charter to the CO - you get the
It would be a sad thing for the Troop to leave a CO with a poor
