T406B+G-Troop Schedule Changes Regarding COVID-19
The adult leadership has been monitoring the rapidly changing response to COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, we have cancelled the March 16, 23, 30 Troop Meeting and the new Scout campout scheduled for March 20-22. Also PLCs for both Troops B&G are cancelled.
This is a result of both Circle 10 Council cancelling all council and district events until March 31st as a result of Governor Abbott declaring a state disaster for all counties in Texas.
Crew 406 leadership will send a message to its members regarding its schedule. We will continue to monitor the situation and make additional decisions as necessary.
The Scoutmasters and SPLs will work to put together a plan for our new Scouts so that they may work on rank advancements while at home. We also encourage our experienced Scouts to take advantage of this time to work on rank advancement or complete merit badge requirements.
We are committed to the safety of our Scouts and their families. As always, each family must make choices that are best for its members. We respect any family’s decision not to participate during this outbreak and look forward to returning to our regular calendar.
A Scout promises to help other people at all times. Please take care of one another.

For over a century, the Boy Scouts of America has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The BSA believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.Boy Scouts of America
Troop 406 has a Boy Troop and a Girl Troop that are both active and growing BSA program in McKinney, Texas. Our scout-led troop has developed a great program that includes loads of fun with outdoor activities and challenges. The Scouts in our troop decide our program each year at an event called Troop Organizational Workshop (TOWs). This program outlines the scout themes and campout locations for each month. The program also defines the locations for summer camps. For 2020, we are going to summer camp at Camp Constantin (Texas) and Camp Buck Toms (Tennessee). We are also sending a crew to Sea Base and Swamp Base this summer. Our troops are committed to the community and performs service projects for its betterment.
