Warren High Awarded the Silver Beaver

Posted on Mar 30 2014 - 9:39pm

Our own Warren High is one of the recipients of the Silver Beaver Award this year.  The Silver Beaver Award is given by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America upon recommendation of the local Council to persons who have had an outstanding impact on local youth over an extended period of time through service given to the Council.   The local Council presents a limited number of Silver Beaver Awards each year.  This award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish, and effective service to the community, usually through the program of the Boy Scouts of America. Because Scouters may not nominate themselves for this award, only those persons who have been nominated by their Scouting peers are considered. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest recognition a local Council can bestow upon volunteer leaders.  Please join us in congratulating Warren on this well-deserved award!

Troop 161 Recognized with Journey to Excellence Gold Unit Award for 2013

Posted on Jan 16 2014 - 8:21am

For the third year in a row, Boy Scout Troop 161, has been recognized as a Gold level Troop by the Boy Scouts of America under the Journey to Excellence program for its performance during 2013. The “Journey to Excellence - Gold Unit Award” is the highest award a Scouting unit can receive and is based on the Troop's performance in 13 objective criteria such as opportunities for camping, completion of service projects, Scout advancement and retention and adult leader training.  These criteria were developed by the BSA based on reviews of the performance of actual units that the national organization found to be delivering the Scouting progam in an exemplary fashion.    Troop 161 was also recognized for being a 100% Boys Life unit.  Boys Life magazine is the monthly magazine of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  All Troop 161 Scouts receive a subscription to Boys Life magazine. Congratulations to our Scouts and adult leaders on this well-deserved recognition!

BSA Health Form Revised Again

Posted on Mar 14 2013 - 1:38pm

The Annual Health and Medical Record form has been revised again.  The latest revision is dated 09/2012.  Please begin using the new form immediately.  The form comes in two parts, Parts A - C are required for any outing over 72 hours in length, including summer camp.  Part D is an informational packet for parents and physicians with respect to Scouts attending a high adventure camp.  For those Scouts attending Philmont, you need to have Parts A - C completed and Part D for your physician (parents should also review Part D as it explains some of the medical concerns related to high adventure camps).  Philmont is using the current national version of the form attached to this Announcement.  You can find both parts of the new version of the form on our website in the Files section and attached to this Announcement as well as a document published by the BSA with frequently asked questions regarding the form.  In case we have any families with religious, philosophical or medical objections to vaccinations and immunizations, I have also uploaded a copy of the Immunization Exemption Request form published by the BSA.  You can also find these forms on-line at www.scouting.org.
