Welcome Pack 455 Senior Webelo parents!  Boy Scout Troop 455 wishes to invite you and your Scout to several upcoming Troop activities to assist your Scout in achieving his Arrow of Light and Summit Achievement Award requirements!

 

First though, the transition from Webelo to Boy Scout can be an exciting time for your Scout, but confusing to you, his parent.  I highly recommend that you read up on the process, and a great source of information about the transition period is on the Troop 455 website.  To get to the information, simply go to www.bsa455.org and click on the bullet on the left entitled “Webelos Transition”.   Here, you will find a wealth of documents for you to print out and read. 

 

In addition, you can contact Charlie Lampert, the Troop 455 Webelos Transition Coordinator for 2006 if you have questions on the process.  Finally, I am always available for questions, as well.

A note regarding Arrow of Light requirements and a second invitation . . .

 

Attending the Camporee will fulfill the Arrow of Light requirement for participating in a Boy Scout event.  If you are not able to attend the Camporee, we invite you to the Troop 455 Court of Honor on Tuesday, September 26, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., at Red Pine.  This event will also meet the Arrow of Light requirement.  If you can, please join us for both!
