Sponsored by Rotary, Troop 46, I Kith Mike Strait as Scoutmaster and Robert Merchant as assistant, will meet every other week. On alternate weeks, the Patrols meet. Monthly programs are planned a- head and 'the November meeting will feature Saline History. * The Explorers, composed of older boys, will have Lauren Wild as advisor, and an assisting committee not yet named. Their program will include weekly meetings, with internal leadership changing every three months. Leadership training can thus be spread, as the four categories of events scheduled each three months- are covered. These include social activity, such as football dates for games away from home; service events, similar to the recent job the boys did in distributing Community Chest posters; vocational events, including trips to commercial institutions - Detroit newspapers for example-; and out - door activities which might feature overnight trips, or field days in cooperation with Explorer troops from other cities. Chosen from the boys are "event directors" whose job it is to plan and carry out the projects with the coordinated help of the others. Two Explorers, Douglas McKenzie and Gary Wild, attended the Jamboree this past summer and have shown slides and given an enthusiastic report of their trip before the Rotary, the Kiwanis, and their own troop. From the age of eight - on through the teens the Scouting program provides for steady growth through added responsibilities and awards. AH boys are welcome. Parent assistance is always needed. Our Community Chest dollars help sustain the programs. Remember this when you make your donation!
