Parents and Scouts,

Each spring the troop runs an advancement program during which opportunities are provided for Scouts to work on ranks or merit badges.  This spring we’ll do the best we can using online resources.

The program we’ll use is Zoom, which can be downloaded to any device.  Go to and download the free “Basic Plan”.  This program allows for online meetings between an instructor and a group.

Our rank advisors for Tenderfoot, 2nd Class, and 1st Class will be in touch with candidates for those ranks via email.  They will provide information on upcoming Zoom meetings or other means of fulfilling the rank requirements.

Scouts who have already earned (or nearly completed) 2nd Class or higher rank should try to complete a merit badge this spring.  The troop will be offering the following Eagle-required badges:

1.  Citizenship in the Community
2.  Citizenship in the Nation
3.  Citizenship in the World
4.  Communications

Scouts will work with the merit badge counselor via Zoom meetings and email to complete as many requirements as possible.

For Scouts who have already achieved (or nearly completed) 2nd Class or higher rank:  WHICH OF THESE MERIT BADGES WOULD YOU LIKE TO EARN THIS SPRING?  

Parents, please send me your Scout’s top two choices by this Friday, March 20.  I’ll organize groups and get back to you with next steps. 

Many Scouts will have extra time over the coming weeks, providing an opportunity to complete requirements for a rank and/or one of these Eagle-required badges.  I urge every Scout to take advantage of the opportunity.

Steve Marcy
