Librarian and Quartermaster Needed

Posted on Mar 6 2021 - 11:06am

Have you wanted a POR but then the one you wanted is taken? Check out both of these PORs that are currently open!

Librarian: The librarian manages the troops books (mostly merit badge books) and holds them until someone needs them. This POR is much easier than all of the other PORs, and would probably better suit someone who isn't looking for something time consuming. Quartermaster: The quartermaster manages the troop gear. This includes the trailer, shed, etc. Even in though we have COVID we still need a Quartermaster. Someone has to manage the gear for the upcoming campouts. Email Nick P if you are interested in any PORs.
