Troop 500 Families:
Welcome to all of the new Scouts and families that have crossed over from Webelos. We look forward to seeing you at our weekly Troop meetings on Wednesday nights, and at upcoming scouting adventures.
Summer camps at Mataguay, our local boy scout camp, and Emerald Bay on Catalina Island, are being arranged, and Scouts need to sign up in February for these summer opportunities. Please see the sign-up sheets at the Troop meetings, or contact one of the Adult leaders in the Troop for more information. Other activities are planned for all scouts, see our calendar to save the dates.
Troop 500 is very active and needs Assistant Scoutmasters (ASMs) and other volunteers to make these events happen for our boys. We are always looking for interested adults to help as little or as much as you wish. If you have an interest in helping out and engaging with the Troop in the areas of advancement, outdoor programs, or service programs, please give me a call.
We are also upgrading this webpage, look for the new version soon, with easier access and sharing of pictures, as well as some other web site enhancements.
This is an exciting time for the Troop. Many Thanks to Todd Shinohara, the outgoing Scoutmaster, who has provided great leadership and direction to our Scouts for the past several years and thank you to those who have entrusted me with an opportunity to continue the traditions of Troop 500 and expand the opportunities for our boys to become Leaders in their schools and the Community.
Thank you for all YOU do for Scouting!
Yours in Scouting
George Briest, Scoutmaster
