International Scouting Day - Mexico

Posted by eanthony on Jan 7 2019 - 7:38pm


Scouts in the Washington, D.C. area are invited to set foot in Mexico for half a day to learn about the nation, its culture, and its scouting program at the Mexican Cultural Institute (2829 16th St., NW) on Saturday, February 2, 2019. Whether you are getting ready to participate at the World Jamboree, or you are just interested in learning about Mexico, this is the event you do not want to miss. Besides, it is an incredibly fun and interesting way of meeting requirements for Citizenship in the World Merit Badge or the International Spirit Award.

International Scouting Day
February 2, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Mexican Cultural Institute (2829 16th St., NW)
Registration is only $10 per participant

Share this invitation with the Troops and Crews in your district.  This is a great opportunity that should not be missed.

This event is organized by the International Committee of the National Capital Area Council and the Mexican Cultural Institute which is part of the Mexican Embassy.

Announcement from Chris Wolz

Hi all -
Welcome back from the holidays - hope you all had some nice time off!
I wanted to let you know that we're in the midst of our annual "rechartering" with BSA. And this is also the time when we sometimes make changes to our Troop committee roles. So two points:

  1. This is a great time for you to get involved with the committee! You can join and just start attending and lending your input. This is also a good time to step into one of the roles we have to lead an activity, whether a once-a-year action, or an ongoing role.
  2. Related, I've told the Committee that I'd like to step down as Committee Chair. I've been pleased to help the Troop in the Chair role for the past four years (and about eight years before that as committee member and ASM.)
    We're looking for someone to take on the Committee Chair role after me, and which is an important, and rewarding, role in helping keep the troop well supported.

If you'd possibly be interested in taking on the Committee Chair role, please reach out to contact Jim Buchanan, our "Chartered Organization Representative", who can answer anything you might want to know.
Thanks, and hope to see some new faces at the next Committee meeting, Monday, Jan 21st at 7:30pm.
