Good evening Troop 395,


 I hope that some of you are putting some thought into leadership in the troop. Leadership is an opportunity to help lead our Troop in the right direction. When no one steps up to fill the leadership positions, there is no direction. Ideally leadership positions should be filled by 1st Class or higher rank. You will need to lead in order to get your next rank after 1st class. 


 I wouldn't expect for every Scout to know if they are ready to take the step into leadership. That is why I ask for interested scout's to come and talk to me. We can put together a plan for you, so that you are ready at the right time. Every boy advances at their own pace. It's not about age, but more about maturity.


 We might need to fill some spots with junior scout's. These spots will be filled by scout's interested in learning a position. Credit towards advancement can not be earned until you reach 1st class rank. Please let me know if you might be interested in running for a position. Not every Scout is ready to lead, but every leadership spot needs to be filled.
