CPR/AED training

Posted on Apr 18 2018 - 8:26pm
Interested in learning how to save someone's life?  Three years ago T5 Scouts on their trip to Camp Roosevelt in Maine got to witness as T5 dad, Dr. Dave Phillips, preformed CPR on a man at a Sox game.  It worked!!  
Sign up now on the T5 calendar.
The AHA's Heartsaver CPR AED Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. This course is designed to prepare students to provide CPR and use an AED in a safe, timely, and effective manner.
We will have a CPR instructor join us before the meeting on May 1st to provide certification for those scouts and parents interested in learning perhaps the most important and useful tool in saving someone’s life.  In order to be efficient in this endeavor, the training will be divided in 2 parts, online and classroom.  The online portion MUST be completed prior to the skills class on May 1st.  

Guest Speaker, Mrs. Folsom, This Tuesday, April 17

Ever wonder how the food for a McDonald's commercial, or that billboard you pass every day looks so good?  Darcy Folsom, mom of our T5 SPL, Schaeffer Folsom, will be speaking this Tuesday evening about the art of making food look good for the camera.....and the tricks she uses on the set as a food stylist.  You've heard of makeup artists for newscasters, and movie stars, well, food gets that same treatment....from a food stylist.  

T5 Men's Gathering

Posted on Apr 2 2018 - 5:39am



T5 Alumni and current member's,

The annual T5 dad's picnic is schedule for Saturday, April 14th at the Nalle Compound. Please check your schedules and make sure you made time for some good food (oink oink), beverage, fellowship and stories that continue to get more adventurous that actually happened. Additional information I hope I on the flyer.  If you have a Class B tee shirt to wear that would be fun to see where our scouts have been during their travels in T5 and if not no problems. Remember to also bring a side to pass with the meat. Look forward to seeing you all.

An Opportunity to Serve

Posted on Feb 11 2018 - 5:02pm

The backbone of T5 is the tremendous support the parents provide the program.  As we get into the Spring there are a couple positions that we will soon need to fill.

First is Record Keepers.  This position is typically filled by two adults who keep the records of rank advancement, service, camping nights and merit badges earned.  Anyone interested in this position will want to shadow the current record keepers for this semester and assume the position in the fall (with some continued support until they feel comfortable).

Second we need a new BOR coordinator.  This person will coordinate Board of Reviews for Scouts as scouts request.  Basically sending an eblast to dads and staff the BoRs.

If you have questions about either of these positions (or where you may serve elsewhere) feel free to contact Committee Chair Dean Jett (dean@deanjett.com).
