It feels more like fall than the end of July. Still, the school year is only a little more than a month away and it’s time to think about scouting in the fall as well.
We are making some changes online, first is this website for the troop, rockawayvalleytroop69.org. This is a WordPress site. It will allow for an open site (no login) for posting information such as this, provide links to other sites and information such as how we want to run the troop and other FAQs.
More information can be found in the sidebar, including a link to ScoutBook, Upcoming events, and a few recent photos. To get to the sidebar, click on the “stack” icon next to the “Troop 69” title.
We are also adding a service, called ScoutBook, to track individual Scout achievements and event planning. This site, which costs us $1/scout/year, is very nicely done, user friendly and easy events, on mobile devices. It provides different calendars for the troop. RSVP from those invited and achievement planning for meetings. You’ll have invitations soon to join ScoutBook.com and to link to Troop 69.
