Two Rank Advancements, and End of Year Advancement Plan

April 13, 2016

Troop 410 Scouts and Parents,

We have two rank advancements to announce:

Tonight, Ryan Bolitho successfully completed his Board of Review and advanced to the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest possible rank in the Boy Scouts of America.

Drake Testa successfully completed his Board of Review and advanced to the rank of Star Scout on April 6.

Congratulations Drake and Ryan.


There are 7 regular Wednesday Troop meetings until our next and final COH of the Scouting year:
April 20, April 27, May 4, May 11, May 18
May 25 – last meeting night for Boards of Review to be included in the June 8 COH.
June 1 – last meeting night for submission of blue cards for Merit Badges to be awarded at the June 8 COH.
June 8 – Final COH of the year

If you are interested in advancing rank before the June 8 COH, put your plan together and take action to achieve your goals. Follow the steps for rank advancement found on the Troop website and see me at a Wednesday meeting when you are ready for your Board of Review. All Merit Badge and Rank Advancement information is available in your Scout handbook and on the Troop 410 website here: See me at any Wednesday meeting.

Note for new parents and Scouts crossing over to Troop 410 this Spring: We will hold a session to review the merit badge and rank advancement process during one of the meetings in May. Watch your email for an announcement with the date and time.

Yours in Scouting,
Mr. Garvey
