The Pleasanton Scout troop has been meeting since the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year; however, they did not receive their official charter until January of 2020.

“We were just getting started when the coronavirus hit, and we couldn’t meet,” said Scoutmaster Nathan Meik. “So this year has been crazy, but we do have the okay to meet now but with parameters in place for the safety of the troop members.”

The troop currently has five members and is hoping to grow and gain new members as the troop itself grows.

“We can take kids from the beginning of sixth grade through the age of 18,” said Meik, “and we are also looking for a volunteer to take on the role of female scoutmaster for any girls who would like to join.”

Meik noted there are a few girls who would like to join, but without a female scoutmaster they cannot let them. The female scoutmaster is required for the girls for certain activities and events, and to begin a girls’ troop, there would need to be a total of five members who want to join initially then the troop can grow from there.
