Once again, the Event has "Sold Out".
Eagle Scouts Edward and Christopher Merz from Troop 39, Mattituck attended the 2016 New York State Delegation of Boy Scouts at the Albany State Capitol. Scouts from each county of NY get to visit Albany and talk about why the Scouting program is important to them. They met with guest speaker Senator Martins, Assembly Member Jean Pierre of Babylon and Senator Michael Venditto of the 8th District of Western Suffolk. Chris Boyle was the MC of the event. Mr. Boyle sat next to the Scouts during the OA Suffolk Winter Banquet and gave them an autograph patch. They also met a Scout who earned all of the merit badges!! They were impressed by Albany’s architecture and recommend that any Scout who gets the opportunity to visit Albany should go!

POPULATE YOUR "PIN"
Currently the primary method for new families and interested youth to find out more about Scouting is the BeAScout.org website. Individuals can visit the site, put in their zip code and find out units in their area. When they click on a unit they are given contact information for that unit so they may either call or send an email to find out more.
We realize many of you may NOT be the Top Leader or Committee Chairperson of the unit but we need you to check out your pin at www.BeAScout.org
. Put in your zip code and when the units come up click on your unit and see what information is listed. If the information is the council it needs to be changed to the unit information. Now if it's not populated here is the information you need to populate the pin. Please be aware that Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Crew Advisors, along with the Unit Committee Chair and the Chartered Organization Representatives are the only volunteers who have first-time access to set up the BeAScout.org pin. These leaders will then be able to set up a total of 6 individuals in the unit to access the editing features of BeAScout.org.
