Without our volunteers we would not have a functioning Troop and with the new year coming up we are desperately after some parent recruits to help out. Below are the following positions that we need to fill.  A few of these positions, you do not need to be leader trained for, and can easily do from the comfort of your home.  Any questions at all regarding these positions you can contact SM Mary Ostlund or person listed after the position for verification.


-       Secretary – Someone to attend the Committee Meetings and take the minutes of these meetings and then send out to all Members. Contact Vicky Jeffries Vicky@jeffriesmedia.com

-       Merchandise Chair – Someone to take control of the stock of merchandise that we have and hopefully make a plan to bring along to future meetings to see if we can sell this off.  Also, for any new scout joining, to complete their merchandise order. 

-       Communication Coordinator – Someone to send out the weekly updates to let the Troop know what is happening. Contact Vicky Jeffries Vicky@jeffriesmedia.com

-       Fundraising Chair – Mr Tuazon who has done this for a few years will be finishing up next year due to his son aging out.  We will need someone to take over the duties of the Popcorn Kernel and any other fundraising that the Troop chooses to partake in.  For questions you can contact Hank Tuazon hank-t@att.net.

-       Leader Training Coordinator – Mrs Boylan has taken charge of this position for a few years and also has a son aging out and will need someone to take over her position.  Contact her at ecboylan@sbcglobal.net for questions.

-       Advancement Chair – to help with the input of details into Scoutbook and arrange the awards that are handed out at the quarterly COH.

* RECRUITMENT PERSON NEEDED: We are in need of a recruitment person to help recruit scouts, especially since LDS is disengaging with BSA soon.  If interested please contact Mary Oslund.

* SECRETARY POSITION: We are in need of someone to take the minutes at each Committee Meeting.  If interested, please contact Mary Oslund.

* POPCORN KERNAL/POPCORN CHIEF SCOUT OPPORTUNITY: We are looking for a new parent to start shadowing Hank Tuazon to be our replacement Popcorn Kernal in the coming year.  His son is aging out soon and we are going to need a replacement to take over.  Also a scout to serve as Popcorn Chief to assist with popcorn sales and learn the marketing side of selling!  If this is your scout then please see Mary Ostlund for more information and to request the position.
