Scoutmaster Musings

Merry Christmas The next few weeks are a perfect time to check in with past scouts that are home for the holidays on break from college to enjoy time with family.

Our troop has a special meeting early in January where they recap the year and get commitment to the year ahead. This is a perfect time to invite past scouts back to see how the troop is doing and hear from them about their recent adventures. We have recent scouts in MN, AZ, CO, MA, WI, ND, and IA so having the current scouts hear what they've been up to is a good thing.

To do this successfully, you'll need contact information for scouts after they leave your troop. This is a great task for the troop historian as scouts age out - keeping a file of past scouts, their addresses, emails, and phone numbers. If you send a short alumni newsletter twice a year, the list should stay up-to-date without much effort.

The BSA has a Scouting Alumni site to help keep past scouts connected.
