We have not one, not two, not three, but FOUR different email
lists to communicate within our troop:
The main one is for EVERYONE involved with the troop -- Scouts,
leaders, parents. It is an announcement-type list, with
usually one or two messages per week.
The second list is only for the troop's adult leaders. This one
is unmoderated and gets a lot more traffic for planning and
The third list for members of the PLC (Patrol Leaders'
Council), and their parents. This list is to allow the youth
leaders to do some planning and toss around some ideas.
The last list is for FRIENDS of Troop 72. Usually these are
former members, or parents of former members, but it could also
be people who are fans of the troop but don't want detailed
emails every week. Messages to the "troop72-friends" list are
limited to invitations and announcements of big events, such as
Scout Sunday, pancake breakfasts, and Court of Honor
ceremonies. Typically this list sees only one message every two

lists, send a note (along with your name and phone
