[Troop222All] Scoutmaster Updates: September 22, 2013

Last May I lost my wooden pen, I loaned to a scout at our Flood Park meeting and never got it back.  If there is a strange wooden pen in your hose (that happens to have my name on it) please bring it back, it has sentimental value to me.
New Resources on the www.t222.org website!
Please checkout the updated information on the website. 
– On the home screen I have added a chart that shows the topic for the meeting and the scout in charge as well as the Patrols responsible for the Flags and room setup.  It is right below the calendar!
