Leaders make first 'state-of-the-troop' report to Auburn Rotary

Troop 50 leaders had the first opportunity to make a state-of-the-troop report to members of the Auburn Rotary Club, which serves as the troop's chartered organization. The contingent included (staring second from left) Scoutmaster Andrew Baird, Troop Committee Chair Rob Stanford, and Chartered Organization Representative and Auburn Rotarian Michael Tullier. They are pictured with Martee Moseley, the club's president. Troop Committee member and Auburn Rotarian Jim Perry was also present.

The three Troop 50 leaders outlined the basics of the Boy Scouting program, shared an account of troop organization and of recent meetings and outings, and offered opportunities for Auburn Rotarians to serve as troop leaders, mentors and merit badge counselors. Most importantly, the update allowed the troop to inform Rotarians of how the annual financial investment Auburn Rotary makes in Troop 50 benefits Scouts and provides the necessary financial support to underwrite event, equipment and registration expenses.
