Greetings Troop 253 -

As I'm sure all of you are aware, the COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly.

Yesterday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine banned all indoor and outdoor events with more than 100 attendees and provided the estimate that the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ohio will likely peak between late April and mid-May.

As such, after consultation with Pastor Amy Gopp Vigne and Committee Chairman Kyle McClain, Troop 253 is suspending all in-person gatherings at Kent UCC until further notice.

I have been in touch with Seneca District Executive Olivia Pilon, All Council and District level activities are likewise cancelled.

In addition, the March, April and May campouts are CANCELLED, and summer activities, including Summer Camp, are up in the air.

As the situation changes we will update the Troop here.

Please stay safe out there.

Lots of love,

Tom Mahon
Troop 253
